There's a yahoo group called APMultiples that Karen Gromada (author of Mothering Multiples) is active on (or at least was when I was on the group, a year or so ago), she's got great advice, help, encouragement for moms of multiples who are having trouble w/ breastfeeding.
Mom to 3 awesome kids, 6.5y, 6.5y, 4.5y, plus a newbie born this year.
I just wanted to lend my support. My boys are now 2 weeks old, and are EBF. I know several of the nurses at the hospital, ( and some family members) had reservations about whether or not I could do it, but I refused all bottles (except at delivery for their very low blood sugar) and would not even allow it in the room with us. I had a c/s but I took advantage of having to stay in bed, and I just nursed the entire 5 days I was in hospital. I ignored scheduling suggestions and let the babies drive. By the time I left the nurses were telling me I had educated THEM about Bf'ing. Stick to your plan, and let the babies control the demand. Get them to the breast every chance you get. Your babies are lucky to have mama willing to fight so hard for them!
