My very very clingy 2 year old

So I'm still breastfeeding my 2 year old little boy and that's not the problem, the problem is that he wants to breastfeed ALL day long, he would not mind spending the whole of the day on my chest. And since I have lots of other things to do he insists on crying at me all day until I pick him up and I end up breastfeeding him about 10 times a day for half an hour each time-not exaggerating. Am wondering if I have the clingiest child in the world, is anyone out there going through this? And this isn't even the worst it's ever been, he has gotten a little less demanding. Also have a almost 4 year old girl who I still breastfeed when she asks every once in a while, maybe once in 2weeks or so.

I can commiserate! My twin boys were clingy at that age. Have you tried putting limits? I started feeling touched out so I put limits on them and that saved our breastfeeding relationship. They'd nurse ALL day long if I let them. It wasn't easy and it was important for me to be consistent but they finally got the idea...
