hang in there with your toddler. i'm very familiar with that crawly feeling. whenever i get that feeling, i have someone get me a large glass of water or i stop nursing and get it myself. it seems to take that sensation away.
i know that having to take care of a crew of youngsters makes it harder to take care of yourself. that is why tandem nursing is probably more strained this time. after my 2nd child was born it was much easier than after the 3rd because the 1st child was still young enough to nap. now the 1st doesn't nap and the 2nd rarely does. i miss taking naps!!!
keep going, it will get easier!
