I just nurse them back to back. I rarely go somewhere without some sort of 'help' so I usually have someone to hold/soothe the other baby. This is one of the reasons I rarely tandem nurse. I like having them on slightly different schedules. When school starts I imagine we'll be out quite a bit during the day.
When I get home I am usually exhausted to the bone and tandem them before slapping their booties in bed! We went to the zoo yesterday. A friend wore Ben and I wore Claire while pushing our double stroller with the one and three year olds. They nursed quite a bit since it was 100 degrees. When we got home Claire cried and cried (overly tired and overstimulated) and then slept for SEVEN hours. Ben went right to sleep and slept for six. I rarely have so much BABY FREE time!
I use 2 meitais both front carry and was out & about 4 days after they where born. It allowed me to feed non stop as thats what they wanted chase after my 3y/o and keep sane.
Now that they are 11m/o i have 1 on my back 1 on my front and swap when they've filled up. They still feed 1 every hour i would have gone insane if i had to stay inside for this long.
Okay, I've been thinking about making a second meitai so I could do a front-and-back carry; sounds like you think it's worth it to have two? Could you explain a bit more about how you nurse with this carry? I've only managed to nurse with one in a sling . . . haven't done any other babywearing/breastfeeding combinations. And this one sounds really useful! I'd love to hear more about it, if you're willing. Is it hard?
