Still feeding my 3.25yo old DS2 here, bed/nap times only, and no chance he'll give up his "yummies" any time soon! He's VERY fierce :-) DS1 weaned at 3yo with a bit of encouragement due to my pregnancy/lack of supply. It was hard for him but I couldn't bear to feed - the sensation was hideous. I did tell him he could go back to feeding once his little bro was here, but he only had the odd feed here and there.

It will be bittersweet when DS2 does wean, last baby and all - so I can understand it must feel a little sad to finish before you are both quite ready to be done.  All the very best - I hope the medication works for you.
