I recommend hand expressing too. It's often easier in the shower because of the warmth and you are more relaxed. 10 minutes is pretty short for this age. You want to make sure they are getting the fattier hind milk instead of filling up on the foremilk that comes at the initial let down. I would talk with a lactation consultant, especially because of nursing twins. They might have recommendations on techniques to be sure they are getting the right combination of foremilk and hindmilk. You could also check out your local La Leche League. I have heard really great things about that organization and possibly you might get some tips from twin mamas
