so it sounds like 2.5 years to 3.5 years is when toddlers seem to feel comfortable doing this on their own.
so my question is, what if you have a newborn? how does it work?
my ds is 16 months, and i plan on trying to get pregnant again between 18-24 months...my biggest concern is the night nursing, like how the HELL do you do THAT with two,yk? my ds is definitely showing signs of needing it less and less on his own, and at least once or twice a night will do the roll over and fall asleep on his own thing, but he still sleeps right up against me (which i love) and nurses from 4-7am almost constantly. i sleep through it, so it doesn't bother me, but i just think, what if i had a newborn in bed with me?
i know that there is a good chance that my milk will change or maybe even go away when i get pregnant,which could adjust my ds's night nursing patterns...but what if he is one of those die-hards
anyone have experience in this. i'd really rather only hear from mom's who have had two or more babies and really know what it's like, rather than speculation...thanks.
