Feeding Both Twins with One Hand

Feeding two twins at the same time. Sam Cunningham

Sam can feed both of her babies with one hand! "I used to sit them both on a bean bag or in their bouncy chairs either side of me. To burp them, I would sit with my knees pulled up and have them on either knee, head on my shoulder and pat them at the same time. In the morning, I just prop them up with a pillow and sit in front of them."

Feeding Twins at the Same Time. Kerry Menne

Kerry is a mom of twin girls. They were four months old in this picture (2 1/2 months adjusted age). She was fortunate to have a helper to feed her twins, her sister Hollie. "This is my sister feeding my girls. It turns out I have no photos of me doing this. I had a co-sleeper against the sofa with each girl in a boppy. I would burp one across my lap and one over my shoulder. It was the only way I could make it work."
