We have recently "sleep trained" our twin girls. I can hardly call it sleep training; we put them in their cribs instead of co-sleeping and they fussed for all of about 5 minutes before zonking out and sleeping through the night for the first time!!! lol Anyways, I'm nursing them, they turn a year on Wednesday and I've read that eliminating night-time feeds frequently leads to decreased nursing and drying up. This was a concern of mine, but I figured I would just go with it if that's what happened. SO NOT TRUE!!!
My twins sleep through the night from 6 pm until 5 am without a feed, but during the day all they want to do is nurse. I can get them to play for MAYBE 5 minutes before one or the other, or usually both, is whining, crying and climbing all over me to nurse. They're still eating their usual meals and drinking water from their sippy cups...but they want to nurse ALLLL the time! It's worse than when they were newborns! Did I mention I have an almost 3 year old to take care of too? (I'm a SAHM btw)
Has anyone had this situation before and how did you handle it? It's getting really frustrating and tiresome!!!! HELP!!!
