Multitasking Breastfeeding

I've learned how to tandem feed the boys while laying down in bed! It's not easy to get them positioned, but once they are on and curled up in the nook of my arm with their little bodies splayed across mine, I slip a pillow under each of my elbows to "prop" them up (it takes the pressure off of my arms, but poses no suffocation threat whatsoever). Then, I get to truly relax and rest while feeding them in the morning.
Sometimes they just fall back asleep on the boob and we all just hang out in bed for hours napping.

That sounds heavenly. I know I felt so much more rested when I learned how to breastfeed in bed. I very impressed to managed to do that with two!
