We all know that we (all moms and dads) are the most excited persons in the earth waiting for our babies to be born...and we will always try to give our best in nurturing them. I always believe that Our Merciful God has given us our beloved babies to colour and brighten our life with full of love and as a completion to our feeling as a human being, to have the pleasure as a mother and father, and to make us more responsible to what we owned. I also believed that nurturing started from inside the womb, then continues till the time of delivery and from the moment our babies started seeing this world. And, I also and always believe in "natural parenting" which help us to bring our children in a healthier, greener & more friendly towards our environment, lesser hassle, and a safer community for the future world. Of all these, this is why I feel that it is very important and "crucial" to start it with breastfeeding.I don't have much to offer all my friends here other than sharing the experiences, supporting each other and experimenting the new tips in growing and nurturing our children in a natural way. So, HAPPY SHARING!!!

My TANDEM Nursing Moment

I started my tandem nursing when my eldest girl was 1 year+10 months old and my youngest girl was just born. When i experienced the breast engorgement, my eldest girl will help me to relieve it...just let her breastfeed. And actually, it only reduced the engorgement for a while because the milk supply become more and more and very grateful to Allah since both of my girls had enough breastmilk supply even i was nursing the two of them. I felt like just gave birth to a twin babies....ehehehe
But it was not long...until when my younger baby was about 4 months old, i had to stop and prevent my eldest girl from continue to breastfeed. WHY??? Because at that time, she started trying to pull the breast nipple from her little sister's mouth whenever the younger sister was breastfeeding. So since after that, she never put her mouth on my breasts (but once a while, she will...only when the younger sister was not around)and I continued breastfeeding my younger little girl exclusively until 6 months. My younger child is currently 1 year+6 months and still breastfeed.
