My DD never stopped nursing, even when there was no milk. It wasn't fun but trying to wean her was too hard on her.
DS was born three weeks ago and DD is loving the milk!! A little too much I think!! Now she's up at night nursing and she asks to nurse during the day not just nap time. But I think the joint nursing has helped her to not be jealous. Almost like she knows the milk came back bc of her baby brother and appreciates him for it. Strange I know but she is so loving with him. People were scaring me telling me to be careful with the jealousy but I haven't seen it. She even understands how to take turns at nursing!!

This is exactly how I feel right now! I don't think dd is getting much at this point. Probably the only reason she finally started sleeping through the night (mostly) a couple weeks ago! I'm really hoping she'll want to wean on her own soon since I don't really know how not to nurse her.
