At least you’ll be chilling out at the same time!Use rolled-up towels or a nursing pillow to support your babies. You can buy nursing pillows designed specifically for nursing twins (some nursing moms recommend the EZ-2-Nurse Twins pillow or the NurseMate pillow because they have large, firm surfaces that will support two babies at once, freeing your hands to reposition or burp each baby).

Remember to switch breasts for each baby at each feeding (or at least every switch sides every day) so both breasts are stimulated equally.

  • Thank you for the video! My twins will be here in 3 weeks and I have to say breastfeeding (and sleep!) is definitely one of my biggest anxieties. I also went with the spectra pump and I hope I like it as much as you do!

  • I don’t know if the timing is good, but I have something to say and at least other moms will maybe use this information: well, when you move the thumb finger below or behind the ear of the baby while feeding, you’ll get your baby sleeping instead of sucking.
    You may not observe that, you may do it automatically or you may think that it will comfort your baby, which is true, but it’s not the best moment to do that.
    You want your baby to eat, not to sleep, do you?
    This gesture is actually used as a method to put the baby to sleep or to make him stop crying.

  • I was totally let down bythe nurses when I had my first, Nobody toldme what was happening they would just drag at my boobs whithout knowing what for, s[and my baby was not attaching and they told her she was “bad”. I wanted to do skin to skin, and was told no you are spoiling her!! Whatever I did I could not please them, it was either me or the baby! I absolutely cracked it and rejected feeding her and insisted she put on the bottle!
