I’d definitey nurse him, or give ebm. Not weird at all! Each time I’ve weaned my kids I’ve given all my leftover pumped milk to family or friends to give to their babies.

I'd absolutely BF, I'd even do it straight from the breast. I'm lazy, why create more work for yourself?

I'm tandem nursing BTW, my 4 month and 2.5 year old kids.

Agreed, though he possibly wouldn't have the right tongue action for breastfeeding direct from the breast after being formula fed for a time. They do forget it. That being said, I am tandem nursing too and my older daughter stopped breastfeeding when I lost my milk at about 18-20 weeks pregnant with her sister. I thought she had weaned, but towards the end of my pregnancy, she wanted to try again, and found I had milk again! She's now 3.5 and still nurses - her latch and technique haven't been quite the same since, but it's still fine and she can still get milk, so I'm not sure exactly how long it would take for a child to lose that ability ...
