Has anyone ever done it? Thought about it? I know it is rare.
DS was born this morning at home, and DD (almost 18 months) is still nursing, so we have embarked on tandem nursing! DD nursed during my labor, and DS nursed right after birth. DD has nursed a couple times in the afternoon, DS is very sleepy. I'm sure at some point I will nurse them actually together.
I am really glad I am doing this...I feel like DD really needs to nurse. And since DS was born at home, she honestly doesn't think anything has changed in her world. There is just another person here, and she is fascinated. But her routine is the same and she was in to see DS within minutes. There is NO jealousy or anything at all. I am happy about that.
