I am so tickled!!!! Guess what I did tonight for the 1st time since having the twins!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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!!

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!
