Maybe you chose to bottle feed your twins, and sometimes moms who want to breastfeed didn't have the option but to formula feed. Moms of twins, actually all mothers, can feel apprehensive when it comes to deciding whether to nurse or formula feed, so whatever you decide remember it’s your decision and your babies will love you regardless.
My Breastfeeding Twins Experience
Nursing is something I had found difficult with my first child (a singleton), so I was very nervous when it came to breastfeeding my twin girls. I made a decision that I was going to succeed and I stuck with it, asking questions from my midwife, lactation consultant and family members who had breastfed their twins.
While my husband was off work after the girls arrived, he would help me position them to tandem feed. After about 2 or 3 weeks I was successfully feeding my little girls at the same time.
By the time they were about 4 months I was exhausted. I decided to supplement one feed of formula a day, the last one before bedtime which my husband did.
Eventually I added in more bottle feeds till I was only feeding at the breast through the night. But my babies decided they only wanted a bottle making me even more tired. So my husband suggested we take turns feeding the girls during the night. It was great to finally get some sleep, and gave me more energy to do more things with the children.
I wish I had stuck with the breastfeeding longer, but in the end our girls are happy and healthy. What more could I ask for.
