Brief Answer:
Copper T is better option.

Detailed Answer:

Hello again,

As your babies are very small you should not go for tubectomy . So copper T is a better option for you.

Though the chances of infection are there in your case with copper T as you are diabetic as well. You can use copper T for 5-10 yrs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
