How soon did your milk come in when TRIandem nursing?

With DD1 my milk came in at about 48 hours, then with DD2 (I was tandem nursing then) it was within 24 hours. This time I'll still be nursing them both AND the new baby, so I'm curious if my milk will come in much sooner. Anyone with experiences to share?

OH MY .... three!? Brave soul. I'm barely managing tandem nursing.

My milk was kinda already in when I had DD2.

Go you! No advice just props to you mama, my friend is doing thesame (3.5, 18 months, and a 2-week-old). Her new milk came in at day 2 I think with this baby. He's already gained over a pound!

Sorry to divert OP, but in your experience it seem like it comes in earlier when you are tandeming than normal? I know it comes in earlier with the second baby anyway.... and I am about to tandem with my almost 2yo and soon-to-be-NB, right now there is clearly enough of something there that my 2yo still loves it, although it's not real milk, and she won't be around probably for the first 24 hours when i have this next kiddo. (Only really because i want to bond and establish breastfeeding without having somebody else bugging me for my 'milks' all day long!)

God bless you mama. I could only tandem nurse for 2.5-3 months and couldn't do it anymore...PPD and just being way to tired kinda ruined it for me.

I'm not sure at all but I'm curious about nursing a 3.5 year old. How often is she nursing yet? My nearly 2.5 year old is still nursing for nap, night and usually at least one other time in the day. I want to let him wean in his own time but am finding myself getting anxious for him to stop

Go you mama! I am tandem nursing and it took about 5 days for my milk to come in. But those 5 days I was only nursing my nb as we were still in the hospital.
