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!)
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
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.
