So I know it can be done. Infact many people do. However, how in the world is it possible when you have 5 older children that need you too?
Brief backstory: I've Breastfed all of my living children. The first 3 only for 4-6 months due to lack of understanding the whole supply and demand thing. My 4th I went to 14 months. My 5th had anatomical issues in her mouth. We saw many doctors and IBCLC's (no TT) and ended up stopping at 2 months. My 6th was a 38 week stillborn last July due to a knot in her cord. I am now 11 weeks pregnant with my twin rainbow babies and my heart wants to EBF but reality tells me it's just not going to be possible. I'm not completely opposed to supplementing with formula, but I'd rather not if I can swing EBFing twins. My girls will be 10, 8, 6, 4 and 2 when these blessings join us, Lord willing. I realize they all had "their" turn but honestly, they had to pitch in and help during the end of my last pregnancy, go through several months of their mom grieving and will likely need to help at the end of this pregnancy as well. There is only so much I can expect from them. They are children and while they certainly should have responsibilities and even pitch in extra when needed, they need to be kids and they need their mom. It may sound like I'm making excuses. That is not the point of this post. I guess I'm looking to get tips, especially from mom's who've been in similar circumstances. Another related thing is, how do you cosleep/nightnurse laying down with twins?
