When I went in for my first prenatal appointment with my third child, my doctor thought it was my six-month checkup after having my second. Once we cleared up the confusion about why my chart said I was pregnant, (because I was!), her first statement/question was "Well, you'll wean the other one now, right?" My negative answer elicited a roll of the eyes and small sigh, but really she knew me too well to be surprised, and well enough to know she couldn't change my mind. After listening to my spiel about the research I'd been doing, her only requests were that I see a nutritionist and that if I experienced pre-term labor I would consider weaning.
Not every mother is fortunate enough to have a supportive doctor or the resources to find out the truth about nursing while pregnant, or tandem nursing. But thanks to Hilary Flower, the topic is out of the proverbial closet and right out there on the shelf at Borders Books. ADVENTURES IN TANDEM NURSING is a fabulously comprehensive guide to tandem nursing and everything surrounding the experience. The first book of its kind, it is being celebrated as a well-researched, authoritative resource for mothers and health care practitioners alike.
One of the things that makes this book great is the easy-to-use format. The book can be read straight through, but it really shines as a quick reference. The chapters address everything from making the decision to wean or continue nursing while pregnant to finding positions to adoptive nursing of a second baby. Common fears and myths are also addressed, such as the real facts about miscarriage and who gets what nutrients first. Frequent anecdotes and stories from real moms add an enjoyable element as well.
Hilary Flower should be commended for her sensitive, pragmatic approach to this topic.

This book is a fun-to-read combination of mother wisdom and hard scientific evidence on nursing during pregnancy and tandem nursing. It's wonderful to have a resource available that both supports and informs nursing mothers, while providing the research-based information on safety issues that they need. Mothers, lactation professionals and health care professionals will find this to be a valuable addition to their bookshelf.

Le seul livre que j'ai trouvé sur l'allaitement en tandem. Il raconte des histoires de femmes et d'enfants qui ont vécu cette expérience. C'est une bonne préparation à l'allaitement en tandem (2 enfants d'âge différents) et l'allaitement pendant la grossesse!

Explains everything you have questions about, and so many things you didn't think to ask! There are very few resources out there like this (actually I think this is the only book I found specifically about tandem nursing).

I tandem nursed my two kids for about eight months, beginning when they were 17 months and newborn. I never anticipated that this would happen, but after reading about the health and emotional benefits of extended nursing, I had already decided to breastfeed my first until two years old. When I became pregnant I felt terrible having to give up breastfeeding my oldest, until I did a little research and discovered that it is completely healthy and safe to continue through pregnancy and beyond! After my first family doctor told me that breastfeeding while pregnant would take essential nutrients away from the growing fetus, I panicked and did a LOT more research. After multiple calls to government and private organizations (such as La Leche League), as well as hours of reading (this book being one of them!) and online research, I concluded that she didn't know what she was talking about, and found a new doctor. Several months later I had a perfectly healthy child, who now years later is intelligent, emotionally mature for his age, and rarely ill.

The hardest part for me (after this book answered all my questions and helped to solidify my convictions) was dealing with the questions and concerns of other people. My best advice is to answer with a few facts about why you chose tandem (and/or extended) nursing, followed by a little humour.

I remember the first time I saw an eleven month old baby who could walk nurse. "disgusting!" I thought. A few years later, I saw a toddler walk up to her mother and say "mommy, can I nurse?" I was appalled.
Well, fast forward to the present. I am now nursing a 26 month old toddler who can walk and talk in complete sentences and I am ALSO nursing her four month old sister! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be a LaLecheLeague type. I thought they were so extreme. Hahaha! Life is funny sometimes. Now I wouldn't have it any other way, and I can hardly believe that I was so ignorant and judgemental in the past.
I just wanted to give my background so you could understand that this review is sincere. This book is fantastic. It goes into every possible thing you ever wanted to know about nursing during pregnancy and then nursing (and caring for) two very young children at once. She *really* understands and she has some great advice. I find myself turning to it again and again as a resource. It goes into the real nitty gritty... will nursing while pregnant cause problems for the baby in utero... how do you really entertain an active toddler while you are caring for a newborn, all by yourself? The author doesn't judge anyone for choosing to wean, if appropriate, and she lets you know that this is not as simple as it may sound.
It is a great book. I am planning on buying it as a gift for a dear friend who is now trying to decide whether or not to wean during her pregnancy. I think the book will cover that for her better than I ever could.
