Hello, and Welcome!
My twins are only three months old, but I'll try to answer your questions. . . I guess it pretty much depends on your definition of AP, but I think that's different for everyone. So here's my perspective: APing multiples is not the same as APing just one baby. I mean, *maybe* if your twins were on completely different schedules, it could be possible to meet all of their needs right away. . . But, of course that would never happen. So, for me anyway, it's kind of like a modified version of AP. I am breast-feeding my babies "on-demand." Sometimes, they have to wait five or ten minutes while I get one baby set up to do something else so that I can breast-feed the hungry baby. Sometimes this means that the hungry baby screams for five or ten minutes. So, I'm not really feeding them on-demand, but rather "on-demand-as-soon-as-I-can." But this still feels better to me than, say, having the babies on a feeding schedule. I also try to carry, or wear, my babies as much as possible. Since they're getting kind of heavy (almost 30 lbs, combined
), I am mostly carrying them one-at-a-time. So one baby's in the stroller, or on the floor, or in the bouncy seat, and the other baby is strapped to me either in a sling or a baby bjorn. And I try to spend equal amounts of time holding each of them, but I'm not like writing down the hours or anything. At night, we co-sleep, so the babies get lots of extra snuggle-time then. Also, co-sleeping allows me to nurse them as soon as they wake to eat, and they rarely have to cry at night.
I gotta go, baby waking up. . .
