I have nothing helpful to say, except to let you know that those feelings are oh so familiar to me. :-) And now that I just have the toddler nursing and no baby, I really would like to be done with it all. OK, so maybe down to only once a day would be nice.

Now Cate is potty training and doing so well, I hate to pull a let's-not-nurse-so-much thing on her. I do think it is time though, and I definitely need to set more limits. Either that, or be on me feet more, since she usually asks to nurse the minute my butt hits a chair.

I'll be curious to see how things go for you. Maybe I'll schedule a little trip out of town for myself. ;-)


I left a tandem-nursing 3yo for a few days in '05. He did fine without me and picked right back up nursing when I returned. (He weaned a year later.)

One surprise for me on that trip was that my breasts did not get the memo that we'd be traveling without the 3yo. Every spare minute I was in the hotel bathroom, hand-expressing and dumping it down the sink in an effort to alleviate the pain. My youngest was only a couple of months old, and even with nursing on one side for twelve hours at a time he still got horrible foremilk-hindmilk imbalance from all that extra milk. So if Milo is nursing a lot, think about taking a hand pump!


Plus, with all that oatmeal, he'll be spending a lot of time in the bathroom. That will also cut down on his nursing. ;)


Update, please! How did it go?
