Is anyone else planning on still nursing while in nursing school
. Mine youngest will be 2 in Sept and I really wanted to nurse past 2 (I nursed #1 for 25 months). Anyone else nursing a toddler (or baby) w/o plans of quitting? Of course he doesn't have to nurse all the time and can get by w/o it while I am at school or clinicals. I still produce alot of milk so I will have to take care of that obviously. Just curiuos if anyone else was also in the same boat.

Good for you.
I have often wondered how long my 1st would have nursed. My milk dried up when I was 4 mos pg with her brother.
Yeah, that happened with us, too. My older one was around 20 months when I was pregnant, but he continued to nurse throughout the pregnancy and I ended up tandem nursing for 2 years.
I see you're in the west valley - do you attend La Leche League meetings? I imagine the Glendale group would be the one closest to you.
The great thing about nursing a toddler is that it's often for so much more than food. So even if your supply decreases a lot from being in school, your baby will probably still want to nurse for the emotional connection and bonding.
