My dd is still nursing at 2 1/2 and it doesn't make my skin crawl or anything,(yet - hopefully it won't) and I'd like to tandem nurse, but I'm just wondering the logistics of nursing two babes at night.
Also, she really likes nursing on top of my stomach (with us both laying down) while I'm getting her to sleep. Do you think that eventually that will become uncomfortable for her and she'll want to just nurse on my side on her own, or should I start encouraging her to only nurse laying on the side now so that it's not as much of an issue if it does become a problem?
Sometimes she just nurses once in the night and goes back to sleep relatively quickly. But sometimes she wakes up twice or more or nurses for an hour or more to get back to sleep. Sometimes I fall asleep with her which didn't use to be a problem for me, but now I wake up all crunched up and uncomfortable - especially my knees. We just transitioned her into her own toddler bed from our bed because we only have a full size bed, and I didn't think it'd be comfortable with two babies in our bed - even with our co-sleeper (my husbands a really big guy and I move around a lot). We wanted to transition her long before the new baby is born so she wouldn't have increased jealousy over that. Now I'm regretting our decision a little bit, though, because it is uncomfortable for me to nurse her in the toddler bed for hours on end (sometimes) whereas in our bed I got great sleep and never had a problem with sleeping while she was nursing. Sometimes I fall asleep with her which didn't use to be a problem for me, but now I wake up all crunched up in her bed and uncomfortable - especially my knees.
And how's that going to work with a new baby? Maybe we would have had enough room. I do seem to be losing my milk some though - I have some Mother's Milk tea, maybe I should take it. Maybe I should night wean her - but I would think that would be even harder then daytime weaning. She really doesn't nurse too much other then to go to sleep for a nap or bedtime or for comfort. I really wanted to let her lead the weaning unless it became really uncomfortable for me.
Right now, the nursing isn't uncomfortable for me, it's the sleeping in the little bed. We made such a huge deal about her toddler bed; we had a half birthday "party" and got her special sheets, etc. We built it up so much because we wanted it to be a really positive thing, that she really loves her bed now. She doesn't want to sleep in our bed now - even when I've asked her. So I don't think it'd be good to go back to her being in our bed - especially if it is a problem with all of us in the bed with the new baby.
