first time tandem nurser--hopefully
me, too. DS is 13 months old. Want to tandem nurse but my supply is dwindling and nipple pain is realllly bad. I am going to start mother's milk tea this week. I've always been a soaker with huge supply so this is a new experience for me. And I battled thrush for 12 weeks at the beginning so the nipple pain is not, shall we say, a pleasant memory for me. . .it's very similar (but not actually thrush) and I just want to know when it's going to get better!
DS nurses 2-5 times per day and at least 4 times a night
Not sure how I feel about night nursing him when newborn baby arrives, but I do not feel he is ready to nightwean at all!
I also feel like I'm struggling with food intake b/c of nausea. I am not a tiny woman, and I love eating, but b/c of all-day-sickness I am really having trouble eating enough and feel tired, miserable and sometimes even dizzy/low blood pressure!
This is so different from my first pregnancy, which was a total walk in the park
The best part is nursing allows me to lay down and sometimes catch a catnap with DS!
