Ok Aaron and I have been freinds since jr high, which is in fact longer than we will admit to now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We are in fact sisters, address each other as such and my folks address her boys as grandsons and her mom is Grandma Marti to Theo. We were both raised family is what you make it and our have welcomed us together.<br><br>
well she has two boys who are now 7 and 5 andf will be 8 and almost 6 when the babies arrive.<br><br>
She is due 4 days after me.<br><br>
I never got to nurse DN1 or DN2 -- they were both weaned long before Theo (not looong actually) and while DN2 asked when Theo was 11 weeks, we didn't let him as we were dealing with boob obsession with him. he and DN1 did drink BM froma cup to see what it taseted like.<br><br>
the 3 times she has seen T she has not been able to nurse him -- she was dry. adn while the plan was for T to help her relacte if they were able to adopt a baby -- that didn't happen.<br><br>
I have slept with her boys and worn them, and she has done the same with T.<br><br>
welllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll we are due within 4 days of each other -- and all the families are estaitc (and the DHs both worried <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> ).<br><br>
well yesterday on teh phone she said "so we are going to swap babies and nurse, right" and I said "OF COURSE and Theo can't wait either"<br><br>
it is gonna be soooooooooooooo incredible wonderful.<br><br>
I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo beyond sad they live in Penn and I live in Iowa -- such is life with FLEO hubbies in both places.<br><br>

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> My stepmother and her BF did the same thing with their kids. She said it made it a LOT easier to get things done. If she had an errand to run or an appt to go to, no worries about leaving a hungry babe or having to express milk! Just drop the baby off at BF's house!

I think that is so cool, unfortunatly my BFF (best friends forever) doesn't nurse her kids but i do. My DS calls her Aunt Raechelle and I our kids will be raised together.

A friend of mine from LLL and I shared the same due date but our babies were born a month apart. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> She was two weeks early (lucky!) and I was two weeks late!

i just wish we lived down the block -- she is in Pen and I am in Iowa so it might actually happen like 2 whole times -- but we'll see we both extend nurse<br><br>
(dn2 lost the boob at 4 -- kicking and fighting, he will be almost 6 when the new one come and we still worry how he is going to reach to eeeee going to another baby, he was very in Theo face when Theo nursed each time they have visitied, and did ask to nurse too, we said no due to how hard sis worked to wean him and due to his frat boy behavior towards boobs... )<br><br>
so the kids should get a chance or two to share.<br><br>
ahhhhhhhhhhh if we lived in the same town, what a awsome babysitter.<br><br>
