    Default touched out?

    I am currently nursing our 3 yr old and 17 month old. My cycles returned a few months ago but with each period I feel completely touched out and so irritated with nursing our 3 year old. His teeth mark as usual but the whole nursing thing during my period makes me want to just grit my teeth and scream. I don't feel this way so strongly when little Xavier nurses. When they tandem nurse (which is rare) I really really want to scream. Anyone else feel this way?

    oh yeah and I'm not nursing anybody right now...


    The heat/humid weather is just so bad this summer.
    ITs 85 right now in my living room I cann't even think about nurseing 1 in this heat.
    I would just be one big sweaty mess.. LOL

    hang in there, I found 3 1/2- 4 years old so much beter....

    AT 3 also it would be way ok to set some limits if you feal like you have too.

    What made you choose to continue nursing a 3 yr old then a 4 year old? I decided to tandem nurse and do child led weaning but I never thought it would last this long.

    flu season kept us going..
    She weaned shorty after her 4th birthday in June.
    By then she was just nursing to go to bed and it was short and sweet.
    she didn't have a smaller sibbling either
    shes the baby of 4..
    my older ones are much older.

    Pamper yourself during your period and maybe that would help a little bit.
