Breastfeeding twins

Erica is the owner of Everything Mom and Baby an online store that features great baby products, and she also the dedicated mom two twin girls and older son.

Undaunted by the task of nursing twins, she is still nursing her two beautiful little ladies, no small feat.

I asked her if she’d like to be in my #breastfeedingtriumphs series.
She agreed!

Here’s what she had to say:

  • When I found out I was going to have twins I had no idea that I’d still be nursing well into toddlerhhood. I didn’t think it would be possible but IT IS! I thought I’d have to pump and bottle feed but the twins fell into a rhythm when it came to nursing that it worked out perfectly. You see I started out with a ruined nipple from a nurse manually expressing me as it was flat. I don’t know why I couldn’t just pump on that one breast to help it “form” but I left the hospital in such pain I was worried she damaged my nipple for good! Thankfully through warm compress and TLC I was able to use that breast. I got the hang of tandem nursing when the twins had better head control but I still prefer to feed one at time as I like the one on one I get with each twin. My girls love it and I don’t see us stopping any time soon. With breast feeding twins it’s hard work but you have to push through it. There’s always a light at the end of tunnel. It’s just so convenient and works for us.
