I'm chiming in late, but I just wanted to say that I am struggling to nurse twins- also had tongue tie- and your perseverance is inspiring! Please keep us posted as things progress. Sending good milk vibes from one multiple mama to another!
Well, they are four months old now (adjusted) and it's been months since anyone has needed a supplement. They get all their milk straight from the tap, and they're pretty good at it, too. We are using cloth diapers and every day when I wash a load of diapers, I count the poopy ones as badges of honor -- breastfed babies don't *have* to poop every single day, but if they do, it's a clear indication that they got more than enough milk. My smallest baby, baby M, gained 8 ounces in the last 10 days. She rocks!
I love nursing these babies! They are so yummy! I am so thrilled that we dodged all those #%@$ landmines that the universe stuck in front of us -- premature birth, crappy NICU policies, severe posterior tongue ties (three!), exhausted stressed malnourished mother, and three babies but only two boobs (that's actually 4 boobs short, not one boob short. Most babes get 2 boobs to themselves.)
So, yay! That's all I've got to say. Yay!!
Wow. I just want to say how marvelous and inspiring this is. My twins are EBF, and have been all but 2.5 days of their lives, and growing well, but I was fortunate - no other kids, just two babies, born at almost 39 weeks, strong nursers, with minimal tongue-tie issues we got dealt with quickly. Even that is exhausting, in the early weeks. I always think, when it's hardest, 'at least I don't have triplets.' My sincere respect and admiration for your putting in that huge effort for their benefit. You're an amazing mama (perhaps BOTH amazing parents) and I am so happy you've succeeded!
