Hi, girlfriend, long time no see!
There's a thread on the archives dedicated to this very subject!
And yes, I'd try to have it over with before conceiving again, just to be on the safe side. Theoretically, there is no problem, but it would be awful if something happened and you started second guessing yourself. And as for the weaning, I'd just tell him you're nursing, that it's not up for debate, and I might forget to tell him that the child is 27 months old ... Some folks are more accommodating if you're nursing a newborn.
Hurray for the twins! They are so special. My little guys are just now starting to work together, they were tugging and pulling together one high chair at a time over to its designated spot, then the other. And if a stranger waves at dtd, she points to her brother and waves to them, then points again, clearly saying, "wave to my brother, too!"
Doesn't sound good for the nursing, I agree. At least they got some colostrum, that's gotta help. And a little is better than nothing, I guess. I just heard a mom say that when she was holding her recently weaned 5 month old nephew, he was turning and rooting on her ...
Oh, well, my view on this is "skewed" from society's norm, anyway.
: I had a c-section, too, for my son. My daughter was born on a Thursday night fairly easily, and he just wouldn't come out! So finally Friday morning we did the section. We were trying everything in the meantime, though, so my daughter didn't get nursed for a while either. And to make it even WORSE, I read her chart about the third day and discovered they had given her a bottle of formula!!!
I am still thinking of suing, to this day. I have been proud to say that none of my children has ever had a drop of that crap, and here they gave it to her, against my express and written consent, while I was incapacitated and in surgery, for crying out loud ... Oops, slightly OT! I get a little rambly ... Anyway, you might pass on that my little smoochies are still happily nursing away at 19 months ... It can be done. I don't know if that will make her feel better or worse, though.
Blessings to you and Peter! And good luck with the baby making!
