Tandem Nursing Tribe - Page 9

post #161 of 462
Mamas, if the conversation here predominantly centers around tandem nursing, I'm wondering if this tribe would be better placed in one of the breastfeeding forums, probably breastfeeding beyond infancy?

The FYT guidelines state:
Quote:
Though Finding Your Tribe was originally opened to help parents find each other based on their location we have welcomed tribe threads for parents of a like-minded path to meet and chit chat with one another. However, such threads should not take a focus of discussion for a topic that is hosted in an existing forum at MDC.

A natural course of chit chat discussion might carry you into discussing your daily lives and sharing events and struggles. But focused discussion of a parenting topic, a breastfeeding issue or problem, an activist or political issue, a religious concern or belief, just tpo name a few, should go to the appropriate forum for discussion with the larger MDC community. If you have any question in this regard feel free to check with the moderators before posting. Should you post or thread not be appropriate for FYT on this basis it may be moved to the appropriate forum.
http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=303060

Plus, you just might get more action over there.

Let me know what you think!
Annette

I thought tandem nursing was a tribe...i woul've never found it in breastfeeding forums.. thats just mho... I guess I'm maybe misunderstanding why then there are love threads in FYT??? and who's not popular here threads.. i dunno..................................

I've asked for a tandem nursing/ nursing through pregnancy forum, and discussed it with one of the board moms... but nothing came of it that I know of... I think those of us in these situations have unique problems and concerns, and sometimes posts about either get lost in the other forums.

I would LOVE to have a tandem nursing/nursing through pg board Especially since I'm nursing through pg, planning on tandeming, and this thread looks rather ominous to catch up with...

love and peace.

timneh_mom i saw your request for a tandem/preg nursing forum. it's currently bumped if anyone else wants to put in a plea.

Because those aren't things that are covered in other areas, according to the guidelines that AM quotes, because the subject here is breastfeeding and there is a BFing forum then it sounds like it should be moved there. There is some grey area in tribes I think, but we may get more traffic in the BFing area?
post #167 of 462
It is a grey area and you're welcome in either forum. You would still be a "tribe" in Breastfeeding, much as the exclusive pumpers are a tribe there. My thought was that you would attract more people in Breastfeeding, and that, since you primarily discuss breastfeeding, this thread would be better suited there. But I'm not going to kick anyone out, LOL!

I think that more people would benefit from the discussion if this thread were in Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy. . . . I never look there but checked it out today once I saw the above post, there were a couple tandem threads, moms struggling, etc. and some of the posters had obviously not seen this thread but really needed to! Thus far, our discussion really doesn't fit in CLW, since many of us have to limit our dds nursing occaisionally, and that gets frowned upon in CLW.

I started this thread after not getting any responses in the CLW forum but it's okay with me if it gets moved to a more appropriate place! I do want people who are breastfeeding two (or more) infants to feel welcome though, that's the only issue with the Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy area. How about the Breastfeeding area?

Oh and would this thread be moved or would I need to start a new one?

Let me double check with Penelope to see where she thinks it would get the most play.

ditto, BUT

might be triandem nursing. my 15 mo still nurses about 1-3 times a day and i am due in dec with number 3. number 1 is 3.5 and has been asking to nurse!!!!! he was never really BF due to cleft lip and palate, so that is a bt bizarre. kind of looking for ward to it. i never let my youngest quit because if this babe had cl+p i wanted to now that i would have enought for him. that way i might be able to use number 2 to bump supply. he is asking right now!!

Never say never; I didn't think I'd be nursing a three year old.

Of course, it's this line of thought that makes my MIL think I'm crazy! NO, I don't plan on nursing them in college.

Somewhat OT, but I've never experienced that in CLW. I'm sorry if you have.
post #179 of 462
i came to post and looked at the top of the page and this thread is in a different forum.


so what's the weather like where you are nursing today? chilly here, and the fall colors are at their max

what's your favorite place to nurse? sofa is great for me, lots of room, and i can do other things too while sitting up. and i use lots of pillows for propping...etc. but, if i need to stretch out, then i move the nurslings to the bed.

are you nursing your nurslings together? yes.
post #180 of 462
I haven't experienced it, and personally believe that the tiny occaisional limits my nearly 3.5 y.o. dd gets do not conflict with CLW. But I have seen others jumped on for imposing rather than negotiating limits with their older nurslings. I actually think that this tribe would get more wisdom and support over in CLW, but so often there do some mamas get snippy with comments about 'remember where you are, this is a child-led weaning forum', about any limit. . . .
