Grand Rounds: Tandem Nursing


Case study of tandem nursing experience 

Price: $17.00 USD

A pregnant client who is considering continuing to breastfeed or chestfeed their toddler has many questions. Is tandem nursing safe? Does it cause preterm labor? Will it compromise fetal growth? What about the composition of the milk? And after the new baby arrives, how can they manage milk supply and make sure everyone is getting enough?  In this grand rounds video discussion, one mother’s tandem nursing journey provides the backdrop for discussion of these questions and many more. Join the Birthmark Doula Collective, the New Orleans Breastfeeding Center, and Nikki Hunter Greenway for this hourlong, thoughtful discussion of: 

  • Reasons parents tandem nurse
  • Stigma tandem nursing parents face
  • Advantages of tandem nursing
  • How to help tandem nursing parents find support
  • What the research says about miscarriage, preterm labor, low birth weight and tandem nursing
  • Strategies for preparing the older sibling to share the breast/chest
  • Breastfeeding management and signs the newborn is getting enough milk
  • Breastfeeding aversion during pregnancy and how to help

Follow one mother’s journey from learning of her new pregnancy all the way through delivery, six months of tandem nursing, and her toddler’s weaning—and be more prepared the next time a client asks you about tandem nursing
