3 months of breastfeeding my newborn! And 22months of breastfeeding my toddler :D

Afraz is going through a phase where he loooooves nursing in a sling to sleep. If possible, he’d want to nurse in a sling all day and have my boobs right there when he wakes up.

Aqil has gone from nursing like a newborn to nursing once or twice a day. I have a feeling that he’s close to weaning, and it’s so bittersweet. I would have liked to nurse him longer but I know that he’s just moving onto the next phase of his life. I’ve always wanted the decision to wean to be his, anyway.

We hardly ever tandem nurse anymore since DS1 isn’t bothered with nursing much. I’m quite relieved, since having both of them on my tiny body was getting tiresome! I’m having a lot of trouble with positioning now that Afraz is bigger. It used to be that Aqil had the roaming hands, rubbing his baby brother's head and pressing his nose, etc. But now Afraz is the one punching and kicking his poor big brother, who just takes it calmly. I have to be the referee most times, which is difficult with both of them on me, as I'm sure you can imagine!!
