The first thing that the nurse says to me at my 6 week follow up is, "Oh you MUST be bottle feeding your twins," and me being the polite person that I am, kindly replied "No, my babies are breastfed." Nothing is more frustrating to me than having people assume that mothers of multiples only formula feed. Its as though there are no mothers out there who are breastfeeding their twins at all, which I know is not the case. With that being said, if you are a mother who uses formula I am not knocking you, I just want other mothers out there to know that breastfeeding multiples is possible and should be considered.
