About Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK

Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK supports parents of multiples to fulfil their breastfeeding goals. 

The World Health Organisation recommends that babies should be exclusively breastfed for 6 months. However, fewer than 50% of babies in the UK are breastfed beyond 8 weeks. We believe this figure to be even lower for twins and triplets. 

Breastfeeding support 

Many twin mums stop breastfeeding before they’re ready because of a lack of support and knowledge. We provide evidence-based advice to expectant and new mums through our popular Facebook group. We also provide discounted pump hire and one-to-one support sessions which can save a family’s breastfeeding journey. 

Parents are more likely to reach their breastfeeding goals when they have a good support network. We educate partners and grandparents through our website and our antenatal webinars. We train breastfeeding peer supporters in communities around the UK. And we train healthcare professionals on how to help families overcome the challenges of breastfeeding multiples. 

Parents of twins and triplets are often told they’ll never be able to exclusively breastfeed their babies. We combat this misconception by celebrating breastfeeding on our website and social media. We also undertake research into breastfeeding twins, triplets and more.
