Q: Will I be able to breastfeed two of my babies at once?

A: Yes, in time, with patience and love, and when your babies are strong enough to both latch on (sometimes not until they are at or about 10 lbs.) you will be able to feed them at the same time. Double nursing is a great time saver.

Don’t get discouraged if it doesn’t work for you the first few times you attempt to nurse simultaneously. The process takes time, and is a learned task. An extra set of hands to help you get into position is helpful as well.
