  • I am not a mom of twins, but my best friend had twins so I can share what she did. She got both into her lap, and then got one to latch. Then she got the second one latched. She used a twin nursing pillow. Sometimes she didn't have to feed them at the same time, so it wasn't an issue. When she did, she used the pillow and she did great! Make sure you locate a lactation consultant and she can help you tremendously! Congrats and good luck!

  • It is possible : ) I do not have twins so I cannot give you tips but I've heard nothing but good things from Mother's of multiples that have attempted and succeeded with this. Good luck to you!

    I've watched that "make room for multiples" show and the Mom's that did breastfeed/feed in general always said to keep their feedings together. To get them on a constant and good schedule together.

    You can do it : )
