Hi everybody! I'm Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. A lot of new moms that have twins are concerned about whether or not they can breastfeed their babies. Well, an increased demand actually creates an increased supply of milk. Here are some tips to breastfeed your twins. First, alternate feedings for your babies between both breasts. This will actually encourage them to drink more milk. It's also a good idea to buy a twin breastfeeding pillow. This will provide extra support for your babies while you're feeding and will help prevent muscle aches. It's also a great idea to invest in a breast pump. This will help collect milk for future feedings. If you find that you're still having troubles, talk to a lactation consultant or try taking a breastfeeding class. These options will help make breastfeeding a lot easier.
