Mom Tandem Breastfeeds For the First Time

Mom's Joy Over Being Able to Tandem Breastfeed For the First Time Is Contagious

Ever since my husband snapped this photo of me a few days ago, I've been going back and forth in my head, trying to decide if I wanted to post this photo or not. I'm not new to posting breastfeeding photos and I am not new to nursing in general but I found this to be quite an experience that I shared with both of my children. This was the first time I nursed them both at the same time. . . My son is getting closer and closer to being 2 years old and my daughter is almost a month old. They are growing up far too fast already! There's a tremendous amount of bonding that you get when you nurse your littles and man, it's crazy how it feels to be able to nurse both of them. My body is providing milk for not just one but for two of them. It's seriously amazing what our bodies can do. . . Brother seems to be nursing more now that little sister is here. But he's been pretty good at learning that sister needs milkies first and that's all she eats. It took a little bit but I think he's starting to understand a little more. Although, he does ask a lot more often to nurse when sister is already on there. So when I am able, I do my best to let him too. The look on my face is me saying, "I'm doing it!!" 😂 There are so many things I said I'd never do as a mom or that I won't be able to do...but here I am. Doing these things and it's awesome. . . . . #momdotme #motherhood #motherhoodrising #tandemnursing #tandem #normalizebreastfeeding #toddlernursing #letthembelittle #attachmentparenting #naturalbirth #momlife #mommyof2 #crunchymom #crunchymama #milkies #breastfeeding #newborn #kidsofinstagram #badassmom #candidchildhood #breastfeedwithoutfear #4thtrimester #4thtrimesterbodiesproject #takebackpostpartum #postpartum #postpartumbody #badassbreastfeeder

Abby D is a mom to two sweet little ones, and even though she's likely experienced tons of parenting milestones since the birth of her son nearly two years ago, her latest accomplishment is putting a huge smile on her face (and everyone else's on the internet!). "I'm not new to posting breastfeeding photos and I am not new to nursing in general, but I found this to be quite an experience that I shared with both of my children," she wrote in a post to Instagram. "This was the first time I nursed them both at the same time."

In the black-and-white snap, Abby is seen wearing a baseball cap that covers her eyes, but you can tell from her expression that she's brimming with excitement and pride as she nurses her son and daughter simultaneously.

"There's a tremendous amount of bonding that you get when you nurse your littles and man, it's crazy how it feels to be able to nurse both of them," she wrote. "My body is providing milk for not just one, but for two of them. It's seriously amazing what our bodies can do. . . . The look on my face is me saying, 'I'm doing it!' There are so many things I said I'd never do as a mom or that I won't be able to do, but here I am. Doing these things and it's awesome."
