Re: Re-introduce breast to toddler to increase supply for tw
I haven't heard of anyone trying to unwean a toddler for precisely the reason you describe, but unweaning happens for lots of different reasons. I don't mean to sound discouraging, but usually when someone manages to get an older baby/toddler back to the breast, that child was a good and enthusiastic nurser prior to weaning and also wasn't weaned all that long ago. There's absolutely no harm in you trying to unwean your toddler, and it may work, but I also think that you'd probably have better luck trying with your twins- they are still nursing, after all.
Some questions for you:
- Have you seen an IBCLC?
- Do you have a good pump?
- Have you recently tried feeding the twins exclusively at the breast, perhaps using a nursing supplementer (Lact-Aid, Medla SNS)?
