my 1st born has been thru this twice, and the 2nd once. And they were happy campers when the supply went soaring again!
just after my 3rd was born, i gushed some blood and my midwife was worried since the placenta doesn't come that quick (it was my placenta) and she wanted the nursing to start then (to slow the blood loss down). but, dd was too busy looking around to care about nursing so we had to have my oldest jump on. he was so happy to oblige and was even happier that it came out so easy. now, what a lifesaver he would have been if i was having bleeding problem. and dd did nurse contentedly for an hour a half hour after she was born.
my boys did also chunked up but this was before the birth when the colostrum started coming in (i had pretty much dried up in this last pregnancy so i was suprised when ds 1 would tell me that he was starting to get some milk- this was in the last few months). we noticed both boys had gained weight and my dh bragged to everyone that it was due to nursing!
i too would love to see a tandem tribe.
