WELL let me tell you about tandem feeding. Prior to this time in my life, I had only heard of tandem feeding when talking about twins. 

What even is tandem feeding? 

Tandem feeding is when you nurse two children at the same time. Now, this can include several situations- feeding twins at the same time, feeding a toddler and an infant, and feeding a toddler and an older child. This also includes nursing one first and then the other or nursing both at the exact same time.

Hey y’all. Jess again! 

I am back to my series on how to keep the peace between your fur babies and your human babies. I know not everyone has dogs so let’s talk about your human babies with a different kind of furry creature–a cat.

Full disclosure: I do not own a cat. I never have. I have had very limited interactions with cats as I am ridiculously allergic to them so everything I am sharing with you is based on research and not personal experiences. I do love these furry creatures though!
