Adventures in Tandem Nursing
I don't often breastfeed both children at once, but when I do, it's always an adventure. Kieran sometimes asks for them both to breastfeed together, but more often it's that Charlotte sees Kieran nursing and asks to have milk. When this happens, she pretty much launches herself over Kieran to latch herself on, crushing Kieran a little in the process. Because she has a habit of twiddling (which drives me insane), she also keeps putting her hand by Kieran's face. This results in him pushing her hand away a lot while she continually tries to twiddle. I feel for him, for Charlotte and I have that same fight all the time, since I don't allow her to twiddle if I can help it. There's certainly never a dull moment.
