I am expecting Bub2 in three weeks... I breastfed dd until she was 18 months old (so finished up 5 months ago) mainly because my supply simply stopped :-(
Anyway she hasn't forgotten about it and is still obssessed with my boobs:-) She has also started asking when "mummy's milk come back??" and insists she will have some and share with the baby?! I havent put these ideas in her head...
just curious to know if anyone else has experienced a similar situation? and how they responded. Im happy for her to have breastmilk and was sad to stop feeding her but Im really paranoid about the teeth now and i know my partner will not like it... anyways just throwing it out there? please share! thanks.

My toddler was very enthusiastic to feed after baby arrived and my milk came in.
I was happy to feed both, and i am really happy with my decision to keep feeding.
I have set some boundaries for the older child, (e.g. no feeds overnight or before breakfast) and she has settled down to 2 or 3 feeds a day if we are home.
Teeth have never been a problem for me.
I did not like feeding both kids at the same time, so only feed them one at a time and the toddler is second in line.
What do you want to do?

I fed my toddler until 22 months when i was 20 weeks pregnant. When DD2 arrived she commented a couple of times about how I've got milk "in there" now. Twice i think she said that she "needed" some milk too- She didn't push it though so i let it go and she hasn't mentioned it since

I am curious as to how she will react when she sees bub feeding... i am happy for her to have breast milk but probably not direct from the boob :-) she bit me causing HUGE damage the last time she fed. I have explained to her they are bubs boobs now and she seems ok with that... so we will have to wait and see!

Perhaps try the 'you're a big girl now' line...?
You could always express some for her, or give her a warm milk at night when you are feeding bubs before her bedtime and sit together while she drinks it and you feed bub?
(I have no experience!)
