I was just hoping for a little advice. One of my 17 month old twins to a large extent and the other to a lesser extent HATE to share me most all the time. If they wake up from a nap at the same time and both want to be held, they will scratch each other's eyes in anger. Simultaneous nursing is settling down a little cause I've started to put them down as soon as the "food fighting" begins, but that was a hute struggle and still is a bit of an issue. There is no way I could have both of them on my lap to read a book together and if they see me holding my 3 year old, they protest.
A couple of times, I have sort of let them CIO in my arms - just sympathize saying, "I know you want mom to yourself, but Lilly needs me now too..." and in a wierd way that felt kind of good, like I know this is not perfect, but let's all try to process it and accept it.
Any insights or strategies? I bet this is not terribly unusual, but just wondering how others deal with it.
