How do you do it when you have both babies by yourself? Any tips?
Mine very rarely nap at the same time. So there's always at least one who needs attention. When I'm strapped to the pump and they start crying, and I'm unable to console them, I kinda just have to keep trying what I can, and if nothing's working, wait it out. Which sucks. If it's an emergency I'll stop pumping in the middle. That sucks too.
Is this just the nature of the beast?
Eta: I'm getting really frustrated with this to the point of tears some days. Sometimes I have to wait so long in between sessions that I end up in a ton of pain. I've even considered stopping all together because my life would be so much simpler. But I don't want to do that.
Right now I'm waiting for DH to finish work before I pump because I have one cranky baby. I usually go 5 hours in between sessions...this will be 7+.
