My twins are 15 months and still nurse about 7-10 times a day including a few times during the night. The only other liquid they get is water from my bottle or a cup. Everything is going great. My concern is my husband and I recently seperated (due to his stupidity) and I am concerned about being able to continue nursing them. Physically and emotionally I have no problem, I absolutely love nursing them and nothing will change that. I am worried that the stress, lack of sleep, and not being able to eat much will affect my supply. Does anyone know if that is a valid concern at this point or if my supply will be okay since we are well established? Also, how does my lack of food intake affect my milk and their nutrition? I have been able to stomach about a third or my calorie intake a day (for their sake) and all of it is nutritious foods (veggies, grains, fruits, etc).
Thanks so much, I am really concerned that this will affect our nursing relationship. I don't know that I can forgive my husband for what he has done, but I know that I would never be able to forgive him if this stress causes them to wean early. I am planning to nurse them at least until they are 2.
