Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms
My twins are 10.5 months old. They are snackers wanting to eat for 5-10 minutes at a time every hour and a half...day and night. I cant take it anymore. What can i do to get them to stay latched longer and space their feeds out more.

Nightweaming could really help you keep your sanity during the day. I'd suggest working on the night weaning first, then see if you still feel like you need to pace out the daytime feeds. Keep in mind that you only need to make it another 6 weeks and then you'll be in a much better place to limit daytime nursing.

Check out Dr Jay Gordon's nightweaming article (know that he's pretty insistent on waiting until at least 12 months, but if nightweaming is what is going to save you right now then you do it now)

Google jay Gordon nightweaming, the title is changing the patterns in the family bed, I think! Even if you are not bed sharing you can still tweak the tips and info to fit your situation.
