I tandem nursed both of them. After taking the reglan for almost 2 weeks I FINALLY had enough milk to nurse both babies at once. AND, even more amazing is they allowed each other to nurse together, normally they fight if I even try to nurse both at once, so, to be honest with all the supply issues, etc. I have not even tried to attempt this again for a good month! I am so excited, I am feeling like less of a failure every single day!!!!!!!!!!

That's awesome!!!

I remember that feeling like it was yesterday!

Good for you!

And you are NOT a failure. You have stuck with it & that is more of an accomplishment than most people make.

If you ever need a pep talk, please please PLEASE pm me. I was there once & it was the hardest thing I've ever done. My girls will be 2 next month & they're still nursing. You can do it, mama.

Bask in your joy!!

Good job mamma. It is so much easier to nurse them together eh? Mine are starting to poke each other in the eye :LOL

Jennifer - I am in North County - Hazelwood/Florissant area. We were in St. Louis City before that. Are you in the twins club? It is hard to find AP breastfeeding mamas there but I recently met one who lives in South County and has twin girls about 10 mos old.

Nice to meet you!

I have no idea where any twins clubs are, are they fun? Do you have any info? People almost drop when they hear I cd and bf with twins + 7 others, and work. I am one busy mama, but i'd never have it any other way, well, except I wish I did not have to work, but, I have part time help at my store so, I only work Tues, Thurs and Friday from 11-5, some days I leave around 3:30 if we are not busy and my pt helper can handle things alone!
