Still nursing here as well and things are going ok! Like some of the rest of you though ds is on a nursing marathon : and for what ever reason he feels compelled to squeeze the breast he's nursing like a hamburger and it makes me crazy!

I tandem nursed the boys for over a year and over all I am glad that I did but I am really feeling torn about tandeming this time around :. There were definatly benifits but I also found it to be hard work and not always pleasent. My babies tend to be BIG so by the time ds2 was 4 or 5 months old I couldn't hold them both to nurse at the same time and that created some serious nursing rivalry!

UH OH speak of the devil, there is ds2 waking up gotta run.

So glad again to read not the only one here. At the beginning of the week I thought we were on the fast track to weaning, he was hardly nursing at night or day. Then he started sleep 5-7 hrs, nursing a bit sleeping a few then nursing an hour or so. That turned into sleeping 5-7 hrs then nursing nonstop 3-5 switching sides constantly and then the past few nights it is let's just have an allnight nurse-a-thon side-switching twiddling bonanza. I am going freaking insane here. Something has got to change.'

It seems like a lot of us are dropping supply with the way the lil' ones are switching like mad. Luke always did that before my period, my supply dipped then as well.

I thought we had it under control here as well with a few limits, but now Finn is getting a cold so he's nursing all the time, day and night ...The worst thing is that he can't breathe through his nose, so he's latching and unlatching and kinda biting at the same time...I hope this doesn't last too long!

Mama to Finn (04/05) Arlo (04/07) and Henry (04/10)
