transylvania_mom and Kristi - thanks so much for the kind words. So far, I haven't found anything that substitutes for the closeness of breastfeeding. She sometimes talks to the baby though and snuggles my belly, so that is very sweet. I still feel like there's a new distance between us though. fruitfulmomma - I had always imagined tandem nursing too. I think I'll offer dd breastmilk after the baby's born and my milk is back to see if she's interested.
