Why Breastfeed Twins Together?
There are many reasons to consider breastfeeding your twins simultaneously including saving time and producing more milk.
Can it save time?
Yes. Breastfeeding two babies at a time is usually faster than breastfeeding one baby after the other.
Will there be more milk produced?
Research has demonstrated when mothers of twins breastfeed simultaneously, they have a higher prolactin level than if they breastfeed their babies one after the other. Prolactin is the key hormone responsible for signaling milk production, so more prolactin may mean more milk.
How do I deal with the logistics of feeding two babies at one time?
It can be difficult to bottle feed two babies at a time but with the help of the My Brest Friend Twins Plus Feeding pillow, both babies can receive your attention at once. Take one baby, put them on and get latched. Once securly latched get the other baby and put them to the other breast.
