Tandem Feeding

To all breastfeeding moms like me, how do you handle tandem feeding? I'm currently 5 months pregnant and planning to tandem feed my 1 year and 8 months old with his sibling once I gave birth. Actually I'm having a hard time breastfeeding my toddler sometimes due to my sore nipples. I tried to offer formula milk, 2 brands already, but he always refused drinking it. And when we offer fresh milk because he eats cereals sometimes, he loves drinking it. I'd like to add also na maselan po ako magbuntis sa 1st and 2nd child ko, and my OB advised me to continue breastfeeding as long as kaya ko pa, hindi naman daw makukulangan ang baby ko sa tummy ng nutrition if I continue breastfeeding my toddler, kaso last night I experienced pregnancy cramps, tolerable naman pero ang tagal bago nawala then nakatulog na ko, si hubby na nagpatulog kay toddler. So this is my 3rd pregnancy na din. I didn't breastfed my 1st child this long like my 2nd, I think 3 or 4 months lang ako nagpa-breastfeed nun sa 1st ko then I started working again. Feel free to give me some tips how to handle this based on your experience. Thank you momshies!

hi mommy 18 mos lregnant with twins and is breastfeeding my 3yr old..dahan2 ko na rin syang wini wean kasi nagcocontract na tyan ko at masakir na sa nipple..since medyo matanda na si toddler ko she understood na na "yayay" (masakit) ang dede ni mommy.. siguro you can try to explain kay toddler if ever na di mo na talaga kaya sya i breastfeed lalo pa na nagkaka cramps kana while feeding..hopefully makakaintindi rin sya na ouchie na and may baby na sa tummy..and promise him/her na lang na once baby is out, sabay na sila mag dede soon..:)
