Welcome to Pregnant and Tandem Breastfeeders! I'm Melanie, your group owner, mom to Liam, Fiona, and Alaina. I've nursed through two pregnancies, tandemed with Liam and Fiona for 18 months, tandemed with Fiona and Alaina for 4.5 months, and now only nursing Alaina.

Please give a brief introduction here, and feel free to start a new post if you have specific questions. I hope this can be a place for you to feel comfortable and secure in your decision to nurse through a pregnancy and/or tandem nurse, and find any answers you're looking for!

HELLO!!! I am Jessie, mother to one 10 month old daughter, and one on the way!!! I just found out about #2 a few days ago, so I haven't been to the doctor yet, but I'm really interested about tandem nursing!!!

Hi, I'm Xak, mama to Lilly and Naomi with number three on the way. I'm tandeming Lilly and Naomi, though I'm in the slow process of weaning Lilly, as she's showing signs of biological readiness with a slipping latch and my own aversion to nursing my poor little booby monster is encouraging me to want to. I've been tandem nursing for *doing math* 27 months (whoa! has it been so long?) and am 10 weeks pregnant :)

Hi my name is Alicia and I'm pregnant with twin boys who I would like to tandem nurse. They are due in june but we think they are coming sooner than that. I only breastfed my first son so I hsave never had any experience with two babies at once :)

 Hi! I'm Jess. I have a 4 year old son and twins on the way. We are expecting a boy and a girl in June. My son was bottle fed after a failed attempt at bf. I really want to try again with our twins and I am undecided about feeding each baby as a single or tandem nursing.

 Hi ladies, My name is Marissa & I have a 5 year old who after a very difficult start I was able to breastfeed for 13 months. I am currently pregnant w/ fraternal twin girls and intend to breastfeed them. I am not due till October but I am trying to gather information now while I can in case they come early.

I'm Jenny, I'm 26, have a dd and a ds (4 & 2 this month), and am due with #3 September 1st.
I nursed my dd through my pregnancy with ds and tandemed almost two years when dd decided to "wait until the baby's born, my milk comes in and it doesn't hurt me anymore" (about a month ago) My
son is still nursing twice a day.

Hello! My name is Andi, and I am currently nursing Sofia (2.5 years old) and Emily (6 months old). I LOVE being able to spend that special time with both of my girls! I am also a Certified Lactation Specialist and run a local breastfeeding support group. I have been married to my best friend for almost 6 years now, and we also have a 4 year old son together, Noah, that was sadly only nursed for a month due to my lack of knowledge and support :(
