Welcome to Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK!

Perhaps you have just found out you are expecting not just one baby, but two or three?

Perhaps you’ve already had your babies and are looking for support?

Perhaps you’re a health professional or breastfeeding supporter and are supporting parents of multiples?

You might have questions such as:

How will I feed these babies?  Will I still be able to breastfeed?  Will I make enough milk? What if they are born early? Will I be able to feed them at the same time? What happens if they both cry at the same time? Will I ever sleep again?!

Here at Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK we will answer all of these questions and more. We will try to put your mind at rest whilst being honest about journey on which you are about to embark. Breastfeeding more than one baby is challenging, but it is definitely possible and a lot of mums go on to have a really enjoyable experience.

Can you help?

We imagine a world in which mums-to-be know that it IS possible to breastfeed multiple babies and that they have the information and support available to do so. We need your help to achieve this. For example, we want to: produce printed and online information for parents and medical professionals; roll out training to medical professionals so they can support new mums better; train more breastfeeding peer supporters with experience and knowledge to support parents of multiples. PLEASE HELP!
