Have you ever nursed 3 kids? I have not but I'm nursing 2:) Sometimes it feels like 3 lol! Love this statue though :)


Triandem Nursing



Several momma friends and I were talking about what we call triandem nursing (nursing 3 of your little ones). It made me think of this sculpture from Vigeland's Sculpture Park in Norway. Ina May Gaskin mentions viewing this statue (among others) when discussing the United States' epidemic case of "Nipplephobia" in her new fabulous book, Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding. I highly recommend that you all run out and get a copy. It is worth the pennies for the Nipplephobia chapter alone, but is full of women's wisdom.

Lol. I can imagine it would be overwhelming at times. I'm so tired all the time and sometimes I get overwhelmed with two
