Breastfeeding twins...do I need 2 boppy's?

  • Spray85Spray85 August 2011

    I'll be a first time mom..say 2 wks from now. I'm having twins and planning on breastfeeding...I'm wanting to mainly pump because I'll be back @ my FT job in 6 wks (planning on mixing formula & breast milk) and I HOPE I can freeze some. Has any mommy of multiples out there breastfed? Do I need 2 boppy's? I'm just overwhelmed of how I'm gonna do this with two lil ones...help!

    I don't have multiples but I don't think you'll need 2

  • I don't think you could even use 2at once. You best bet would probably be 1 boppy with 1baby to the left and 1 to the right in what is called "football" position. I think that's the only position you'd be able to feed both st the same time and if you did them one at a time you'd be feeding day and night!

    They special pillows for nursing twins, look at the my breast friend website...

    You can't use them both at the same time for feedings but it would be nice to have both. I use my bobby to sit baby in as well not just for feedings.

    Yeah, that's the one I was talking about @blueberrysmom

    I got my brest friend nursing pillow, it looks pretty good, its big so it fits both babies and it attaches to you and has a little back support, I dont have my twins yet but I will let you know how it is when I have them in 4 more days :)
    I do know that a lot of twin moms recomend it.

    @Josie749 @blueberrysmom @CynthiaY I haven't seen those before but seems soooo much better than the boppy ;) thanks for the link!!
