Tandem breastfeeding anyone?

I'm tandem breastfeeding my two year old son Eric and my one month old daughter Fierna, going ok, but Eric asks to feed so much! I think he's super excited there's milk, and he also knows that I'm feeding the baby so much he doesn't want to be left out!

Anyone else tandem feeding?

I'm not (still only have one) but just have to say congratulations!

A good friend of mine is breastfeeding her 3 year old and (I think) 18 month old. She has said that the older child was excited by all the extra milk. It's only now (she is pregnant again) that the 3 year old has started to cut down. They negotiate much more and just have a feed before bed. The younger is feeding 3 times a day. She is pregnant with twins so may be quad tandem feeding eventually if her oldest doesn't wean.
