I know I don't have to wean my toddlers because I am pregnant (my twin girl and boy are 25 month old, and 9 wk pregnant). But I feel I need this, because I am feeling always weak and tired and have morning (all day) sickness. I know these are usual pregnancy complaints in the first trimester, but I didn't have them in my previous pregnancy, which went very well. I feel that it would be good to restore some of the iron and other nutrient stores in my body, before the pregnancy progresses. Anybody who has experience with weaning toddler twins?
They are nursed twice a day, first thing after potty in the morning and last thing before potty and lullaby in the evening. I nurse them at the same time (each in one lap) and it takes at least 15 mins (they nurse for pleasure rather than the milk). They are so eager for nursing times. They jump out of bed to nurse in the morning, hardly have the patience to go and finish potty.
There were times that one was less interested than the other, but then they induce each other. Sometimes one leaves the breast to look at a book or a toy, but the other continues, and after five minutes, seeing that the sibling is still on breast, the first one who left the breast again wants to nurse. This can go on like that for hours, but I've recently put a time limit.
It is said that the taste of the milk changes with pregnancy, but I didn't feel anything like that, they seem to enjoy it as in the past. Is there a chance that they may wean themselves (considering that they are twins), in the next few months? If yes, I'd rather not force weaning.
