Did you have oversupply issues when tandeming? I have always had pretty bad oversupply and was able to tame it with 12+ hour blocks. Im not really sure how to tame it with two nursing. Toddler wants to nurse pretty frequently and I am letting her because I'm 4 days pp and I dont want to deal with meltdowns.

I wouldn't worry about it at first.  In fact, having a nursing toddler is great for the oversupply and being engorged.  :)  

The toddler is probably enjoying the milk and will back off in a few weeks (maybe).  It took me a couple of months to regulate my supply while nursing two.

Ditto this. My son was able to catch the initial flow and soften the breast so baby sister wasn't overwhelmed by the flow and could get a good latch.

Lol, YES, but I have never been able to control my OS or OAL. And my 2 year old is nursing just as much, if not more than my newborn! My boobs leak everywhere day and night and I soak through LAYERS of clothing.
