I just go.  I don't want to stay in all the time, so we pack up and we do it.  I have one runner and one that will stay relatively close (or is at least slower).  Worst comes to worst, I grab the slower one and chase after the runner.  Usually, it's much better than I expected.  I'm not going to always wait to have another adult with me to take them on a little outing.  The more you do it the more adept you get.  You will learn tricks to keep them contained.

To help your wife be successful breastfeeding, you should take on all the dirty work, changing diapers before/after feedings and changing their outfits after they spit up all over themselves. It is also important that you try to occupy whoever isn't eating (if your wife isn't tandem nursing) whether they are crying and you are...
I have 4 month old twins who have been breastfed and then given a 40 ml supplement of ebm in a bottle (slow-flow nipple) since birth. Things were going great until N (who was always the weaker nurser) began SCREAMING at the sight of my breast. This happened incredibly suddenly and now she will nurse very little, and only for any length of time first thing in the morning and before bed. I am on day one of taking away the bottle, because I believe she has developed a...
