second time around

I'm already a mom of one, expecting twins this second time. Breastfeeding was a nightmare with my first.

I was told I had inverted nipples (now I know they are flat). I did not have enough information but I stuck with the pain for a whole year. THANK YOU for your website!!

I've been scouring the internet for help and advice, tips and tools. I have learned SO MUCH just reading this page, that I haven't found anywhere else.

I am determined to breastfeed the twins but I'm just not looking forward to the pain. Your website is helping me get geared up!!

hey!

I'm so happy to hear when people say that the info has helped them...that is why I started this site...for ladies like you!

How far are you in your pregnancy? I had flat nipples too, and failed the first time around with breastfeeding as well!

I used a device called the nipplete to pull my nipple out....it was quite painful but it worked, after using it for only 3 days. The only thing is, you can't use after 6 months of pregnancy.

I am now still continuing to breastfeeding my second baby with absolutely no problem, so yes it can be done.;-)

Congrats!

Congrats on your twin pregnancy!! Hope they'll truly be a double joy and blessing to you.

I also have a prince and twincesses and am still breastfeeding my twins, now 14 months. It's quite different from nursing just one baby, but it is even more worth the effort (and yes, pain too).

I'm no expert in flat or inverted nipples, but one thing I can tell you is that having two babies suck on your nipples day and night will most likely help 'pull' out your nipples. I am seriously amazed at the length and direction mine can go, especially now that they are doing gymnurstics and competing to see who can get into the weirdest position... latched on.

Nursing twins is one of those rare, unique and fun experiences, you'll love it.

Good luck Mama!!
