    I'm breastfeeding my 3 week old twins and bought the pillow they have available at Baby Bunting. It was $99 (10% less with you twin discount!) and its been great. I find when I'm out the best way to support them without the advantage of a pillow is to have one across your tummy and the other football style. One thing I never counted on was my size B-cup breasts going to a D!

    bgbgbb!! It is awesome to hear that twin mummies who want to b/f are doing so successfully!!! I remember reading a while ago another twin mummy being told by her GP that it was rare to be ABLE to b/f twins - load of crap!! It might be rare for them to want to - and with the added stress of actually having 2 or more babies - who could blame them! BUT to say that it isn't possible in most cases, was just ludicrous! i'd love for that GP to come in here and see all our success stories.

    Do any stores stock twin pillows or do you have to buy them online? I am thinking of getting the EZ 2 feeding pillow it's $119 on thinktwins anyone know if you can get it cheaper anywhere?

    I got mine at baby bunting, and they had a big selection to choose from. Any big baby store should have them, not so sure about the little independants

    Default I am so thirsty....

    Did anyone else have an unquenchable thirst whilst breastfeeding twins? I know it's due to the 2 litres of milk I have to produce every day but this is ridiculous. I down 2 x 600ml bottles in no time whilst I'm feeding and still feel thirsty especially at night time. Also, I drink so much ( 7+ litres of water a day,) that I'm always in the loo...so it's not all going to the milk

    It is seriously thirsty work Once they get to about 4 months you might notice your supply stabilise a little bit, and so your thirst will also stabilise. I think for me the thing I really noticed was the hunger- I was constantly eating in those early days!

    If you're thirsty, drink the water. Your body should eventually adjust to it and work to incorporate it more, meaning you will see less toilet trips also.

    Keep going, you're doing a fantastic job!

    Quick question.....(less than 7wks for me now!),
    Am going to buy the EZ2 feeding pillow...BUT....should I get the inflatable one or the foam one?? The foam one looks sturdier, but the inflatable one should give me more height options??
    Cheers in advance for your answers,
    Kelly
    ps I am soooo looking forward to breast feeding my boys. Am buying an electric pump as well... just in case I need to give my nipples a rest and so my hubby can enjoy the experience as well.

    Kelly, I dont have the inflatable pillow, just the foam one but I highly recommend it. Its much sturdier by far. Would also recommend the Medela Swing breast pump. My hospital used it and I bought one. Made expressing quite comfortable. Make sure you also get some Lasinoh gel in case your nipples crack, as well as washable breast pads (much more economical).

    I have the inflatable one, and it was good because as you said you can adjust the amount of air in it depending on babies size. I also got it because I knew we would be going to my mums a bit, and with 4 kids and pram in the car - space would be minimal, so the inflatable one meant I could let the air out to travel. That part would depend on how often you went places too - and TBH it wasn't too long before I could twin feed without it, I just needed someone to get a bubba when they were done!

    Thanks girls.
    BTW I had my last birth class today and told midwife I was buying an electric pump, and would express if nipples needed a rest, if I needed a rest and so hubby could join is. She said ( more or less) expressing using a pump would confuse my milk flow...as the pump has a different action to the babies, and that giving the babies bottles early on isn't a good idea.....So now I'm confused! Why are there even pumps out there if they go against breast feeding???
    I've read that many twin mummies express and feed babied that way sometimes, while still BFing. I don't plan on doing it everyday, but thought I had the option at least.
    What do other twins mum's do?
