    Default Just curious - ss families?

    Has any couple here both breastfed a baby? I know how a non bio mum can bring in milk, but I'm wondering how the actual feeding goes...?
    Like, how long after birth mum establishes her milk can the non bio mum start to feed aswell. Also who feeds and when?
    I'm interested in doing this when DP carries but I had low milk supply with my bio ds so wonder if it's even worth it....

    I'm not sure, DP and I didn't really discuss it. I hope you can find the advice you're looking for.
