we are ebf.

I nurse one baby at a time because they nurse very different. I think this is becuase its a boy and a girl. The boy has a much stronger suck.

I nurse each baby one one side then switch for the next feeding. I think my boy eats more so this helps keep my supply on each side even.

hmm....what else...The twins were born at 35w3d so i had to wake them for the first month and feed every 2 hours. Now, in order to get sleep, when one wakes i will wake the other.

if you have any questions just ask!
