It is common, when undergoing infertility treatment, to conceive and deliver multiples. Many women breastfeed their twins simultaneously, utilizing a football hold on both babies. Others choose to nurse each baby individually. Some women will benefit from the use of a nipple shield at first, while the baby is learning how to latch on. This is often the case with premature babies. Again, support from experts as well as the people in your life can be key if you are finding this to be challenging.


One celebrity mom who breastfed her multiples is Marcia Cross, of the cast of Desperate Housewives. Said Cross, "'I'll tell you my routine - it's really exciting! I feed, I burp, I change diapers, I pump. I can then


breastfeed both babies at the same time, which for me is a huge accomplishment!"


You are your baby's only mother. There is no one more uniquely qualified to care for your baby, or babies, than you are. If you have always dreamed of breastfeeding your baby you will most likely be able to do so. If you find that you are unable to breastfeed, like some women, it may feel as if your body is giving up on you once again. It is very important for you to remember that you have not failed, and that this is not your fault. Find and maintain a support system that can get you through the experience and hold onto the knowledge that, just like you did when you worked so hard to conceive, you are doing everything you possibly can to ensure that your baby's life, and future, are happy ones.
