Adventures in Tandem Nursing: From the back cover…

  • Can a mother produce enough milk for two children?
  • How can weaning be accomplished without causing jealousy?
  • Is breastfeeding safe during pregnancy?
  • How do you arrange a toddler and a newborn at the breast, anyway?

There is no doubt about it – when breastfeeding and pregnancy overlap, the questions abound! In this, the first full-length book ever on the topic of tandem nursing, Hilary Flower gives comprehensive and in-depth answers to a wide range of questions related to breastfeeding during pregnancy and tandem nursing.

Drawn from a great reservoir of mother wisdom, this book pools the stories of over 200 mothers from around the world. Extensive reviews of medical research and discussions with experts in the fields of nutrition, obstetrics, and anthropology have provided the author with a thorough understanding of what we know and what we can surmise on this important topic.

Each mother’s experience will be a one-of-a-kind adventure, full of surprises and choices. Adventures in Tandem Nursing provides an essential source of support, humor, and information for the journey.
