Bear in mind that breastfeeding twin or multiple is never as easy as people might think and it was never too hard to be done either. However, mother to twin and multiple should never give in to the pressure of making more milk for your babies. You can produce more milk for your babies. All you have to do is get some knowledge on how to make it more and more.
Always remember that the production of breastmilk always abide with the principle of demand versus supply. The more you increase the demand, the more milk would be produce. My first born is twins and I had the opportunity to breastfeed them (although only for 8 months period, due to getting pregnant with their younger brother, while breastfeeding them), so I have some experience on twin breastfeeding and here are the tips I am going to share with you.
It has been such a long time since I wrote anything informative. Especially, anything about breastfeeding and twin. I write this based on my experience breastfeeding my twin, from various reading resources like book, by Shelly Vaziri Flais (Raising Twins: From Pregnancy to Preschool) and few articles on the net.
Below are 6 easy tips should a mother (I think the father should be included too) of twin to take note before the twin is born. It is not very hard to breastfeed twin actually, but you must have knowledge so that not only you can easily breastfeeding them but also both you and your twin will enjoy breastfeeding immensely.
It has never been an easy journey. I write this solely from my own experience in order to guide other mothers who have to undergo cesarean but very determined like me to breastfeed. I just discharged from being hospitalized last two days (i was admitted because my baby didn’t engage as it should be). The patient who was with me in the same room (4 bedded room) will undergo cesarean due to placenta previa (I don’t remember which type) and she wondered aloud how to breastfeed her baby after operation. That inspired me to write this entry.
I remember how it was hard for me to breastfeed my twin in first few days in the ward, what with my stomach suddenly swelled and it was hard for me to break wind, resulting me to continue IV drip for the rest of 3 days after operation! Oh that was the most horror experience that I really wanted to flush away from my memory, if I feel like to ‘sketch’ that memory, perhaps in another entry, not here. The nurses were not helpful either. Only when I was about to discharge (after finally break wind or else I need to spend more days there..hell no! I had had enough!), the MO that approved my discharged was the one who taught me the right and comfortable way to breastfeed especially for mother who undergo cesarean. Geez, only He knows how I was feeling so calm when I finally able to breastfeed. Below are few positions to breastfeed.
