Tandem nursing questions?

Posted by on Dec. 20, 2014 at 2:53 PM

Can you ladies suggest any good articles or books on tandem nursing?? I am curious is it common to nurse both kids together? If so what are the best positions for this?? When I google I mostly see pics of twins, but I will have a 22 month old and a new born to nurse. So I assume the positions would differ.

My daughter was 2.5 when her brother was born. There aren't any official positions we use lol. I latch baby and then the toddler just climbs in where she can. I don't like nursing them at the same time but I often do because my toddler gets jealous.

Most of the time mine nursed separately. When the did nurse them together, the new babyI held in the cradle hold, on the left breast for example. My toddler lay with his legs to my right, but latched onto the right breast. So essentially, both were lying in the same direction.

I nursed two together most of the time.
When the baby was new the toddler went on first and sat in my lap baby went on toddlers lap.
Sometimes I did toddler on the lap baby football hold.
I have several pics but they are on my comp that won't open :/
Because I had a huge oversupply I would often have the toddler nurse first to catch the letdown.

I tandem nurse but we dont nurse the same time lol, but my kids are usually about 3 years apart too.

I usually nursed seperately too. I get too overwelmed with two at once. I do have a picture on my computer. I will try and get it later. My kids are 20 months apart, so the older one would latch however he felt comfortable k
