Hello....my 22 month old twins nurse a lot - about 6-8+ times a day each. My daughter, who turns 4 at the end of February, nurses about 3 times a week.

Welcome Carrie! There needs to be a name for nursing three! Glad you have joined us. I am due with my third child in early January- my other two have weaned they are 6 and almost 11.

Hi Gina, congrats on your newest little person. Some days I think that "triple tandem" nursing (well, my oldest doesn't that much anymore) should be an extreme sport! My little girls nurse more now than they did a year ago.

Hi everyone. I am nursing my 15 month old daughter. I am excited about this group, all my nursing friends have been slowly falling off! I am the only left...
Comment by Karen Davis on November 9, 2008 at 9:54pm
Oh good - a group where i really qualify though all in the past. I tandem nursed the first two. My oldest has forbidden me to tell when she weaned but the second oldest was 3 or so. Child number 3 was about 2 and the youngest was the shortest at 11 months. I laughed at the extreme sports comment. There was too much of a space for me to do three (it would have been REALLY extreme) but I can imagine it!

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
