I'm tandem nursing my 3 yo dd and 1 yo ds. This is my second pregnancy I've tandemed through, third pregnancy I've nursed through. My second to oldest self weaned at 4 years 10 months old. Right now my 3 yo is very attached to her "yummies" at nap time especially. She no longer nurses at night but this is a recent thing she has accomplished. (she's a big girl and sleeps in a big girl bed with her big sister!)
Nursing isn't painful. I don't have soreness at latch on or off at all. Course, I've been nursing for 6 solid years so I think they're pretty much hardened to it by now. I plan on nursing until they want to stop, so could end up triandem nursing this time around.
Not everyone looses thier supply. I never have. It can slow down some but doesn't nesssassarily stop. All women are different.
Adventures in Tandem nursing is a great book!
me too guys. i'm nursing an almost 4 year old and a 14 month old. ds1 doesn't nurse all that much anymore though. sometimes he will go a few days without asking and then suddenly want to nurse a bunch. he was a total nurser as a baby and never really liked solid food. even now he gets most of his nurtrition from liquids. he is just a really picky eater. ds2 loves solid food and doesn't nurse near as much as his older brother did but he still nurses a ton. i remember when pregnant with him and with the baby in between him and his brother i hated nursing while pregnant in the beginning. this time around i'm not having much tenderness and actually that worries me. like makes me think something is wrong. i not planning on weaning anyone. although maybe ds1 will wean himself soon. he told me the other day he just wants to nurse until hes 4. ha. we'll see. dh and i often joke that ds2 will wean first.
