Struggling and Coping...

~ Posted on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 12:07 PM ~

Hi all,

Just want to drop a note that I am struggling and coping with tandem nursing. It's more of an emotional issues which I read occurs commonly for tandem nursers and I'm trying to overcome this and praying hard I will get through this obstacle.

I'm currently on day 11 of tandem nursing and again, this is more of an emotional battle for me to fight through (am also suspecting could be due to hormonal changes since my body is trying to revert back to the pre-pregnancy stage)

My dearest hubby has been the greatest source of strength and pillar for me to rely on during this difficult times. What would I do without him?! Every minute he has spared, he spends it with us and helped me take care of Ben during his fussy moments.

Please pray for me, us and that we will get through this.

Any experienced tandem nursing mamas who has been there and done that, appreciate your support and encouragement in any way.

God bless you all.

Hi Jenny! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I can really feel your struggle with tandem nursing... You have a wonderful husband who is so supportive.  

I tandem nursed my 3 kids together until my eldest was 5yo. My 2nd kid is still tandem nursing (he's 3yo). I went through negative feelings too when I was a new tandem nurser with my 1st and 2nd kids. It took the first few months to work through them, but after that it was wonderful and I (and all my kids) have been so blessed by tandem nursing.

Will share more of my experience on my blog, hope it helps ... my prayers are with you and your lovely family!

I have no advice to offer; however, I will definitely send up a prayer. Smile (((HUGS)))

"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Isaiah 41:10


I never had that before. Just don't think about it and smile always, it will go away very soon. Take care and give my hug and kisses to junior.
