When ds is born? She will be 19 months old.. I nursed her for 3 1/2 weeks and stopped due to my own ignorance (explained in another post)

Have you ladies came across this? What did you do?? Did you nurse the older sibiling or no??

if she hasnt nursed since she was only 3 1/2 weeks old I dont know about getting her to nurse after your baby is born. At the very least you can pump milk for her.

Lol, it's been so long any "desire" is simply jealously of the new baby (just like bottle babies siblings want to drink bottles)

If she wants to nurse and you're fine with it let her try, it's completely harmless.

Im totally ok with her not wanting to nurse... she has a full mouth of very sharp teeth haha

My doctor just brought this up to me and i wondered if any other mammas dealt with this!

My older child is almost 3 and she did ask but I was not comfortable with it at that age and having been weaned since 16 months. I just explained to her that's how babies get milk. She got milk like that when she was a baby too, but now she's a big girl and gets to drink from a cup.

Pretty much EVERY mom with a toddler and a nursling deals with it. Quite normal. No harm no foul no matter what you decide to do.

I doubt she'd really be able to latch properly  but she might. Teeth have nothing to do with it lol many people nurse kids her age (me) & older with a mouth full  of teeth with no problems. If you don't want to try it then jsut tell her no.
