You can nurse two at once it's called tandem nursing! Google Kellymom tandem nursing:-)

You can try to switch back to breast. It may not be easy. Google kellymom getting baby back breast:-)

I agree with Kellymom.com- great advice! and if formula semas to be a problem then I would nurse as long as you coud. I nursed for 25 months!

I'd continue to nurse both. It's probably more exhausting then I could imagine.

As for how you tandem nurse. I don't have a clue. But wouldn't think there is a wrong way. Kwim?
