normalizebreastfeeding Love your caption @avalese82 very big props to all #tandemnursing moms out there also love that this is another family photo #normalizebreastfeeding 2d
  •   raising_zayden I stopped breast feeding about 4 months ago now I am healthy to feed again if and how can I get my supply back 2d
  •   sugar_kakes_27 Drink a lot of water mothers milk tea works great I drink 2 cups a day lactation cookies Have been a big help I make them so easy and very quick bake time . @raising_zayden 2d
  •   raising_zayden Okay than you. @sugar_kakes_27 2d
  •   snavery84 @raising_zayden it's going to take a lot more than cookies! Relactating requires frequent stimulation of the breasts, with a high quality double pump if possible. If baby will nurse that's great but most babies won't go back after that long. Look up Jack Newmans relactation protocol, his is the best! 2d
  •   avalese82 Thank you for the feature!! 2d

sixlittlebirds That moment when your baby takes an early nap and your toddler is at preschool. Stocking milk for a friend's baby when she goes on a trip next month. #milksharing #tandemnursing 3d

caliboobing I love #tandemnursing. This picture is from about a week and a half ago. Ceci has been really good about her new sister's round-the-clock nursing, she hasn't shown much jealousy and she's starting to exhibit "mommying" behaviors with her stuffed animals (she doesn't like dolls, lol) like feeding, tucking them in for nap, giving them "mat time," bringing to the potty, etc. When she wants boobie too, she'll climb up next to me with her tongue hanging out like a dog. She'll give Zooey a sweet little kiss on her head and sit "like a big girl" for boobie, and then if I ask her to say bye-bye to boobie she'll unlatch and wave and tell boobie goodbye. She's the most obedient when she wants to nurse and it's pretty cute! Usually she wants to hold my hand or Zooey's or rest her hand on Zooey while we nurse together.
I tried to not have any expectations about tandem nursing and I think that's partly why this has been going well for us so far. Some days, like with everything, are better than others. Some days Ceci is a little more jealous, and sometimes she needs more one-on-one Mommy time. But for the most part she's been my little helper - "Little Mommy" as we call her - so patient and so sweet. And that's been a huge surprise. I'm very proud of her. (And she peed on the potty today and I seriously still cannot believe that actually happened.) #beautifulbfing #beautifulbreastfeeding #normalizebfing #normalizebreastfeeding #extendednursing @theleakyboob @birthwithoutfear

  •   thatbecky Hi Mama! Any tips on getting preg while EBF??? Xo 3d
  •   thatbecky Great job nursing for so long!!! Keep it up!! 3d
  •   caliboobing @thatbecky hi mama! For me personally it took 6 cycles to get pregnant while EBF despite my cycle returning 5 weeks pp. On the 6th cycle the only thing that was different was that we were away on vacation with the LO and she was nursing slightly less (like minus a feeding or two a day, nothing huge, just for those few days we were on vacation). So for me, that was enough I guess for my hormones to figure their stuff out. By then my LO was 13mo. Not sure how old yours is! I kept taking OPKs but they can be confusing. I didn't have the patience to chart like I did for my first pregnancy either, lol. 3d
  •   thatbecky Thank you! And congrats on your two beauties! :) 3d
  •   ayearofebfeeding Incredible! Our bodies are amazing! 3d

  •   jw7o1 Umm isn't that hard to do? Love the pic though. 3d
  •   lilyprettybirdclaire @jw7o1 Not overly. Breastfeeding takes up much of my day, changing positions and being silly helps keep things interesting. 3d

namastersonclan {beautiful picture by @littlebirddoula } I'm so incredibly happy that I'm pregnant. I'm happy to spend the next months surrounding myself with positivity. I'm happy to get the opportunity to trust my body again--to tune in to myself. I'm so incredibly happy to grow another beautiful baby to love. Im so happy but I'm also a little scared. I'm scared of how this will change my life. Emsley loves nursing. We've made it 16 months so far, which is a huge accomplishment. However, she and I have many changes to look forward to. Maybe I will not experience soreness. Maybe I will not experience nursing aversions. Maybe I will not lose my supply, though a great deal of women do. The things I do know for sure are these: my milk will eventually change from the sweet milk that I have now to the thick colostrum that is perfect for a newborn-- and also wonderful for a toddler. Emsley may hate it. She may decide to wean herself as a result of any of the changes that we have to anticipate. I also know that she will one day have to share me with another baby, which is a scary enough thought on its own. I've spent many hours crying over what this pregnancy means for Emsley and I but I know that we will all, as a family, make it through this. I will not force Emsley to wean no matter how difficult things may become, even if I lose my milk supply, because I know she's not ready. She couldn't sleep without it. She couldn't even function during the day. Breastfeeding is so much more than milk. There's the emotional aspect of it, too. Breastfeeding is comfort to Emsley. It is safety. It is love. So, even if my milk dries up, even if it hurts, even if *I* hate it for a little while, I will continue to give Emsley what she wants, so long as she wants it. We'll push through and hopefully I'll have the opportunity to watch Emsley tandem nurse with her baby brother or sister. It will be the sweetest sight in the world to me. <3 1w

  •   kabreirainh All my exact thoughts on if I get pregnant anytime in the near future! So much positivity to you my love 1w
  •   xjinnix I just finished my tandem nursing relationship with my daughter after 3.5 years. It was the best gift I could give myself and to my babies. Especially during our transition from one nursling to two. The act itself bonded them to one another and gave my daughter and I alone time when her baby brother was a newborn. I'm excited for you and your family. <3 1w

  •   namastersonclan @xjinnix so amazing! I can't wait to experience it!! 1w
  •   tiffanyjcr @namastersonclan Thank you for this post! I cherish nursing my littles and my oldest weaned at 18 months and my youngest is 11 months but nurses morning, snack, noon, snack and night. He loves his milk. I didn't think anyone would love milk more than his sister but he's proved me wrong. He loves being held in my arms or lying right next to me. Enjoy your pregnancy and watching your sweet girl grow into a new role in your family. 1w
