-figuring out the tandem nursing thing. My milk just came in and my 23mo DS wants to nurse all the time, which makes my afterpains hurt more. Plus I want to make sure DD isn't getting short-changed.
-figuring out how to sleep 4 in our queen sized bed. DS is spending more time in our bed and he sprawls out. Last night he put his arm around 2 day old DD in his sleep--very cute! I wasn't comfortable with this though, so I moved her and I down to the bottom of the bed and we spent most of the night there. Trying to figure out what to do to make our sleep situation more manageable. We have The No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers by Elizabeth Pantley. Will have to see if she has some ideas. Have thought about getting another matress to put on the floor. Would it if we could get DS over night nursing and sleeping through the night.
Hang in there everybody!!! I'm thinking it has to get better!
