Re: Tandem Nursing Anyone else out there??

Not currently but I tandem nursed my 22m and newborn until my oldest was 3 and she self weaned. She was old enough I could set some bounderies though and I don't think you could as easily for a 12m. But essentially I let them nurse whenever they wanted but tried to have sometimes just one at a time. I think I had less jealousy issues than I would have otherwise. . It is important to prepare the older child for the coming baby. We talked about how her baby sister would need to nurse a lot at first, ect to prepare her ahead of time.
