    Talk me down please!!!

    Advertisements
    I'm seriously about to go crazy (ok not really...I'm just extremely frustrated.) Both girls are going through growth spurts and I never get a break from feeding! We've been tandem feeding very successfully for about 3 wks but now they want to eat all of the time and at different times! My nipples are so sore because they never get a break with BF 2.

    I just...ugh. They've been on breastmilk for a month and I'm so tempted to give up right now and just do formula. I need some encouragement or reassurance. I am just tired.

    You can do it! It is just a short amount of time.

    I admire and think it's amazing that you're tandem feeding.

    Have you been able to pump any?
    Growth spurts don't last forever! It's just a hump. And as they get bigger the less time they will nurse. Just remember that little bit of light!

    You're doing an amazing thing for your beautiful little girls by breastfeeding them. Just think about how much wonderful nutrition you are able to give them, and all they are receiving that they wouldn't get from formula. You can do this!

    You can do it! This phase will pass soon and before you know it, you will look back on this time and remember how crazy hectic it was!

    I don't suppose there are any positions available that you can tandem nurse while lying down, right?
