Dear Aunty Tina, Do you recommend breastfeeding two or should I wean my first before giving birth?
I totally recommend tandem breastfeeding if you can! I tandem breastfed and believe it cut down any sibling rivalry, as my first did not feel he had to vie for my attention or got replaced at the boob. You can breastfeed both at the same time, I would just recommend eating twice as much and drink lots and lots of water. Your first child will hopefully wean naturally when they are ready.
For me breastfeeding two was never a problem, because it was the focused task at hand. It can be really rewarding and a great bonding experience. Although I want to add here that breastfeeding does not prevent you from getting pregnant! I was breastfeeding two when I got pregnant with my third!
