My dd (24 months) was feeding most mornings and nights up until I had my dd2 a few days ago. When I got home from hospital on day 4, she asked for milk again. Can anyone give me advice on tandem feeding? I was intent on feeding both regularly, but I suffered fairly significant trauma in hospital and had a massive pph. My milk came in fairly early but I'm just worried I don't have the supply for two. I fed dd1 last night on one side but then little dd2 was sucking for nearly 3 hours non stop after that, desperately trying to get enough Any advice would be much appreciated, and any tips on how to phrase things for my dd1 so she doesn't feel left out. Poor thing. Her world has been turned upside down. Thanks in advance.

Great, thanks. I'll have to time my feeds better. I just wasn't sure if I should even be trying but dd1 has been asking for it and getting quite upset. I feel so sad for her. Thanks for your advice.
