Welcome to Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK!

So you have just found out you are expecting not just one baby, but two or three!

These are the many questions mums in this situation ask:

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.
