I have a question. I am tandem nursing my 33 month old daughter and my one month old son, and I am sooooo glad I stuck it out through pregnancy... However:<br><br>
Sophie toilet taught herself about two months before Sasha was born and has had no problems... until my milk came in. Sophie had been nursing "on demand" which before the birth was about three to four times a day. Once the "sweet white milkies" came back, though, it was ALL THE TIME and she soon got breastfeeding "diarrhea" and had trouble getting to the toilet on time, which was upsetting to her. We cut her back to nursing "bedtimes and wakeup times" plus after injuries and special times declared by ME (i.e. plugged ducts, forgetting to bring the water bottle along, etc.).<br><br>
She's OK with this, but still asks all the time, especially when Sasha nurses. It must be like seeing someone walk in with your favorite beverage when you aren't really thirsty... Wow... that would taste great about now...<br><br>
I had all these dreams about them nursing together and bonding more that way... I hate imposing these strict limits and essentially segregating their nursing time...<br><br>
Any ideas from been-there-done-that moms? While you're at it, any suggestions for tandem nursing positions for the big kid and newborn?<br><br>

Do you really not want to nurse her any more times? If not then it's okay, 2 or 3 times is good! But if you want to nurse her more, that's okay too. My boys are much closer together (only 19 months) but they still pretty much nurse on demand and they are 2 1/2 and almost 4.<br><br>
