My twin are hardly breastfeed. I am too stressed. What should I do??

Dr Pooja Marathe

Hey New mom , dont be worried so much, It's perfectly possible to breastfeed twins, triplets or more. Lots of twins are breastfed until they start eating solid foods. You may like to try a few breastfeeding positions to see which suits you best. You'll get support with breastfeeding at the hospital and also when you take your babies home.. If you need to express your milk because one or both babies can't nurse, hand expression is useful in the first few days. Plan to express from both breasts at least eight times in 24 hours, about every two to three hours during the day and at least once during the night.
