My name is Leela and I have b/b twins who are 22 months old and a 5 yo. We all sleep in the same room.
I'm ready to nightwean my boys. I'm super tired and so is my husband. Super sleep deprived for 21 months is enough already. I'm a bit overwhelmed and would love to hear stories about how you went about nightweaning your twins and what suggestions you might have.
What can I tell you about them to help understand our situation further?
Hmmm.. they nurse a lot still. Anywhere from 3 to 7 times a day. I tandem nurse them a majority of time. At night, they nurse at about 12:30 and then 3:30 on they seem to nurse almost continuously.
Until about 18 months they weren't comfort nursers, but all of a sudden they have become comfort nursers.
They start the night in their cribs (if we can get them in there). Then they end up in the bed. I sleep on one side and its super hard for me to sleep with both of them because I tandem with one on each side. As soon as I turn to my side one wakes up to nurse, so the other wakes up as well. So, very very very frustrating. Especially after 3 am feeding. So lately, I feel like I'm nursing all morning until they wake up for breakfast. Then they continuously ask until someone offers them breakfast and takes them down. Then, they don't eat well.
Thanks in advance.
