Oooo, fun! I am both tandem nursing and ttc #3 while breastfeeding. I got pg with DS2 when DS1 was 7 months old and I nursed through the entire pregnancy. DS2 is now 16 months old and we are still tandem nursing. I do nurse both at the same time, even at night. We co-sleep and we nurse to sleep. First PP AF happened in Dec, and now on my second cycle. Who knows, I may be tandem nursing three in a year's time (although not all at once I only have two boobs, so there wouldn't be enough room!)

Ozzie, I noticed my boobs felt big and sorta lumpy and bulky when I was first pg with Ally and feeding Lizzie. In the shower, I also thought they felt bulky...then I had a 'ping' lightbulb moment

Nursing three? That's pretty amazing, but I don't think I could do it. I only have two boobies! Maybe if it were triplets. Shoot, could you imagine if I had triplets and I were nursing FOUR? DH would go mental

SP, do you lay on your back when you nurse both in bed at once? Do the boys find that very comfortable? I did that once with my kids and found it far too awkward for all of us.

yeah, I lay on my back. They lay on my arms to prop their heads and my boobs fall to the sides (one nice thing about having these mahoosive boobs!) I think it has a lot to do with boob layout on the body and how much they "sag". If I had the perky B's I had before, there would be no way on earth I could do both at the same time while still sleeping. So in that aspect, I love my 34 DD's, but I just wish they made nice shirts that fit them properly...

I have also tandem fed them whilst sitting on the couch. That was a lot easier when they were little, because I didn't have to worry as much about hair pulling and hitting. Usually I get one situated and then have the other boy use his brother as a pillow When they were younger, my DH would sometimes help arrange them too, but now that they've grown, they seem to help themselves

I could see where that would work better. Because I have small boobs if I lay on my back, my kids have to half crawl/lay onto my rib cage to be able to nurse. And if they try to lay their head down at all, they can't keep the nipple in their mouth.

TL, what size are you , if you don't mind me asking?

Now that DS2 has gotten older he enjoys doing acrobatics while nursing, so he quite enjoys the traveling ability of my nipple
