I successfully breastfed my twin girls exclusively until they were 8 months old, when they began nibbling food off my plate. They are still nursing 3 or so times a day at 18 months old.  My suggestions are to: get a twin nursing pillow (I think mine was called EZ 2 Nurse?), drink a LOT of water, learn how to nurse both babies while side-lying (this was my life-saver, as I have two pre-school age boys, as well, and this enabled us all to get some sleep) and don't give up!
