oldest will have to wait :( Thats a hard one mama. Make sure that when the tins are done to offer the oldest, so that he doesn't feel neglected. Also, see if you can find a special activity or snack that he will like before the twins are ready to nurse.

Yep, agree with pp that oldest will have to wait. Can someone distract the 20 month old or offer him a special treat during that time?

(Good for you!!)

Remind the oldest that his turn will come, but at the moment he has to wait. I agree with the others for trying a snack or treat while he waits.

I have 2.5 year olds twins and an almost 14 month old son. I've never really ran into that but I always nurse the baby first and then the twins.

The oldest will have to learn patience.  Don't let screamind and tantrums..yes this is a tantrum, make you feel bad. Treat this like any other tantrum.  YOur oldest MUST learn to wait his turn.
