I am a stay at home, solo Mum to 23 month old b/g twins. I cosleep with them and they both BF frequently, at least 3 times each during the night but usually it's more like 4 or 5 times each. The feeds are very brief and I believe are for comfort and a way to get back to sleep rather than nutrition. I offer a bottle of water first. My son will sometimes except the water but my daughter never will.
He BF and then rolls away thanks to the Pantley method but my daughter likes to sleep attached to my boob and wakes if I try to disengage her. She is a light sleeper and always wants to join in on the BFing if she wakes to find her brother is having a feed.
If either of them wakes and I try to pretend I am asleep or try to pat them back to sleep they cry with increasing distress and will not be comforted until I give in and BF them. Which I do as otherwise I end up with 2 screaming toddlers.
How do I night wean 2 toddlers at the same time?
I am at a complete loss as to how to do this particularly as I will be doing it alone. I may be able to pay the babysitter to assist me for one night but that is all.
Also is there an optimum age to night wean, wean, and move them into there own room?
