Hi there, I'm expecting baby number two in 4 weeks, and while I've started preparing my daughter for the birth and baby, I'm not sure how to talk to her about sharing the breast. She still nurses 3 times daily (would probably do more if I offered). We cut out the bedtime nursing session about 8 weeks ago bc it was really ramping up my Braxton Hicks contractions. She will be beginning preschool around my due date, so I would like to minimize her stress as best I can. Tandem mamas, how did you talk to your older nurslings about taking turns at the breast? How did they adjust? I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences. Thank you!
