NUSRING TWINS AFTER A SINGLTON I worked

NUSRING TWINS AFTER A SINGLTON
I worked with a mom over the course of 12 days with her newborn identical twins. It began 12hr’s post birth. This couple was amazing. So eager to learn anything they possibly can so that they can have their twins exclusively breastfed. Their previous child was born with such a severe tongue tie and it was not addressed early enough, so breastfeeding was not possible. She was so dedicated that she pumped for 5 months with her first. With the twins, it was all about learning latch mechanics as well as positioning and understanding the difference between when the babies were drinking vs. sucking.
One of the baby’s was having more difficulty than the other in latching. Mom was so patient and accepting of her challenges. I met with them 6 times and spoke and texted countless times. After much dedication they were breastfeeding exclusively. She learned how to tandem nurse them and became more at ease.
