I have 10 month old boy/girl twins. I didn't really know what attachment parenting was but it turns out that it was what my husband and I had been doing, mostly because it felt right.
Things are busy busy busy but sleeping has become such a huge thing. The twins have been sleeping with us since they were about 2 weeks old, mostly because initially it was just so much easier than having to get up (they also never liked cribs). I am still breastfeeding them and my son nurses up to 5 times a night, my daughter nurses every hour, but will also usually only sleep with me as her pacifier. Getting them to sleep (for 2 naps and for the night) involves nursing, rocking, walking, patting and shushing - I don't mind doing that stuff but lately it's taking longer and as soon as one's down, there is the other! I usually put my son to sleep, transfer him to our bed then put my daughter to sleep - she will only sleep if she is held. I would never let them cry.
Aside from feedings at night they are both very restless sleepers and require so much soothing, patting, etc. all night. My husband spends hours rocking and walking. I haven't slept more than 1 hour at a time in 10 months. I read the No-cry Sleep Solution but am too exhausted to implement the suggestions. The nights pass in a (long) blur. I am so so tired.
I don't know what to do or even if there is anything to do. I guess I am just wondering if anyone has any suggestions (or can tell me it gets better!)
Thank you so much for reading this - it feels so good to know there are other parents out there with the same ideas.
