hi all, I am having a tough time weaning my girls! I am feeding them numerous times a day and if I don't they will be extremely cranky which I find pretty stressful. I tried making the feeds twice a day. I apply some bitter edible paste on my breasts and that has helped but it's not really helping coz they still demand numerous feeds and I have to keep applying this paste! I was wondering if there is an easier way to do. This. I have two older girls who I weaned at 20months and it wasn't this hard! It's tough to wean toddler twins but I know it's possible ! Please advice! Thanksss

I'm interested in what others have to say as well. I'm trying to wean my 26 month old daughter. I'm almost 9 weeks pregnant and so tired! My nipples are extremely sore and every time she latches i wince. The problem is, she's never slept through the night! Ever! And constantly nurses all night long, further exhausting me. I also tried putting bitter stuff on my nipples and she doesn't care, she'll just keep on nursing. I think its time for her to start sleeping in her own room and just letting her cry it out :-(. Breaks my heart, but she's so stubborn and i don't see any other way. She screams "mommy i want nah nah!" At the top of her lungs. I'd love to hear other ideas.
Good luck to you. Do your twins sleep in their own bed? If so, you'll probably have this licked in no time.
