How to Breastfeed Twins Efficiently

By Nabta Team

Breastfeeding twins might seem like a very daunting task but it definitely possible with combination feeding! Exclusively breastfeeding twins requires a lot of time and physical effort. If you want to make sure your twins get the benefits of breastfeeding while you retain your sanity, try alternating formula and breastfeeding for them. At one feed give one of the twins formula and the other breastmilk and alternate them at the next feed. You can feed the baby on formula first as it will be quicker to finish or have your partner help you with feeding the formula which is great for their bonding as well.
