What an ordeal! I was a first time mom and I had twins. I was a hot mess, scratch that, I was just a mess of a person. I barely slept, I couldn’t think and I was doing my best to breastfeed two little babies.
After appointments with Lactation Consultants and doing hundreds upon hundreds of hours of research, I finally got the hang of it 😉
Here is part 1 of our series: What I wish someone told me!
Breastfeeding twins can be very difficult, but very fulfilling. In this video we will learn about breastfeeding twins.
So before you make any decisions, be sure to focus on why you’re breastfeeding and why it’s important not just for your baby, but for you, too. Breastfeeding creates bonds, it’s healthy for your little one and it helps prevent picky eating.
Why It’s Bonding?
Breastfeeding offers many positive benefits; one of which is that it helps build strong bonds between you and your child. A hormone is released during breastfeeding that amplifies motherly instincts and makes you feel closer and responsible for your child.
It Helps Reduce Picky Eating
Recent studies have proven that breastfeeding kids can play a role in creating a kid’s food preferences.
You can also use both breasts. You may favor one, but it’s important to use both.
So as you can see, you can work through this. There are just so many benefits to breastfeeding; benefits for you, for your little one and for the relationship you’re building together!
