Breastfeeding Times Two: WHAT I WISH I KNEW!

I tandem fed my twins until they were 7 months old when I got a bad sinus infection from an ingrown wisdom tooth. I had to go on antibiotics and pain relievers and I couldn’t feed my babies all those medicines through my milk. It was the hardest decision I ever made and I really regret it. It sparks tears just thinking about it and I beat myself up all the time. In retrospect, I wish I had breastfed them exclusively until they turned 2.

Even though I knew A LOT… here’s what I wish I knew before they were born…

  1. I wish I knew better tandem feeding positions

  2. I wish I bought the twin breastfeeding pillow

  3. I wish I never even started pumping

  4. I wish I whipped my titty out in public in order to feed my babies

  5. I wish I knew better than to let people shame me

  6. I wish i knew to walk with water 24/7

  7. I wish I knew more coping mechanisms for the pain

If you’re a new mom looking for help, speak to a lactation specialist as early as you can and go to as many appointments with her as possible. The more you know, the better off you’ll be.
