We don't say "Siamese Twin" any more OP. It's not the thing.

Conjoined is the word.

I thought you meant he was pretending to be a cat. I was going to corn on with my stories of when DS2 insisted he was a puppy, he had a lead and everything.

User's right - conjoined is the usual phrase today, but it's exhausting when they won't let you out of sight/touch/smell I sympathise! Sometimes you just need to put them down and have a pee smile

Corn on? Think that should be "join in"

Is this a recent change? Teething or unwell? How old is he? You could try bottle at night with dp if you're not lone parenting if it's not illness and baby not young young.

Oops yes, conjoined.
You get my point, though.
He is two and a half, has never taken a bottle, and I am almost a lone parent. Dh will be Moving out and he been in spare room for a while now, so won't be getting involved in night duties.
Actually feels like I just have to wait it out but I'm shattered and sometimes so fed up with ds2... sad

I do!
Poor you I thought he'd be much younger. To be honest it sounds like his BFing is much more comfort related than being a necessity. Can you do lots of cuddles and stories instead? He's too old for a bottle now anyway - Woudl a sippy cup or proper cup work?
