I am expecting twins this summer and I'm nervous as heck about nursing them. I've nursed two kiddos well past a year but I feel like twins will be a whole new experience.

A few things I've read said that you can't nurse twins on demand. And honestly, I'm not sure how NOT to nurse on demand.

Just looking for anyone who has nursed twins to share their experiences. TIA.

If you haven't crossposted in the Parenting Multiples forum, I highly suggest you do. I am afraid I can't help, but I do agree that it seems you pretty much have to demand-nurse twins. I am a long-time tandem nurser, and I know it is physically possible, although sometimes awkward, to nurse two at once. Admittedly, there is an age difference, but it's still a matter of wrangling two squirmy bodies.
