Talking Re: Tandem Nursing Anyone else out there??

My LC told me that it makes matter worse if you refuse the older child...even if they have been over nursing for years... if possible get the older one engrossed in an activity b/f you nurse the baby. Naptime is useful too. =) Make sure you explain to the older sibling that you will be nursing the new baby, etc, to prepare her ahead of time. Let her "help"....yes they can like to hold my breast while #4 nurses, he of course doesnt need any help, but they think they are helping lol. Preparation is key... =) The more you let them "help" the less jealousy issues will occur.... Good Luck! =)
