On CNN this weekend, talking to Dr. Gupta? She recently had twins, and she was saying something like "All this talk about nursing 2 at once, it ain't gonna happen!" so of course I was getting angry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">, but then she said, "I have to nurse them one at a time!" (She explained that she can't figure out how to hold them at the same time, let alone nurse them at the same time.) Well, then I jumped up and down for joy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Yay! I had read that she had a baby night nurse for the first few weeks, so I was convinced she was formula-feeding, or at least supplementing heavily, so she could sleep.

Oh, I'm sure she'll figure it out soon enough. When I babysit my nephew I nurse my daughter from one breast, and cradle my nephew and bottle feed him on the other side. Once they are older, I'm sure she'll figure it out. My daughter lays with her head on my nephew, he thinks it's the funniest thing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I read a few articles about her and she works from the early morning until late at night and has nannies. She also recommended a certain brand of bottles as a "must have" for new moms.

Hmmmm... Nannies all day and all night? Sounds like she can't even raise her own kids, much less breastfeed. So maybe she was telling a little fib about nursing. Well, I guess we'll never know. Well, that bursts my bubble. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

If a mother hires people to help her out, it doesn't necessarily mean that she isn't breastfeeding. My brother and SIL at one point hired people who helped out with the children day and night, and my SIL was breastfeeding the whole time.

Yup, I obviously jumped to conclusions. I know she works long hours, but I do too sometimes, and no formula here! She must be hooked to her pump most of the day for two babies!

She is a very concerned mother with a very busy career, trying to stay actively involved in her children's lives.<br><br>
I can't imagine having a 4 1/2 year old, a 2 1/2 year old, and infant twins and have no help, even if I didn't have a career outside of home. One nanny can't take care of all four children, as the babies have much different needs than the older children, who have to be dropped off and picked up from preschool, and don't necessarily nap.
