Breastfeeding guide for multiple pregnancies

Multiple breastfeeding is possible. A mother can successfully breastfeed twins or threesomes. The amount of milk is governed by the law of supply and demand: the more often babies suck their breasts, the more milk is produced. In the first few days, it is important for babies to suck as often as possible, or for the mother to breastfeed frequently.

In the beginning it can be good to get to know and breastfeed one baby at a time. As babies become familiar, there are also ways to breastfeed two babies at the same time. The mother needs a lot of concrete help during the early stages of breastfeeding. The role of the other parent and other relatives is emphasized here.

Breastfeeding has many benefits. The health benefits of both mother and child are significant, and in particular, multiple mothers benefit from the fact that when breastfeeding, milk is ready, fresh and just right, without having to get out of bed to make milk at night, for example.
