My boys are almost 3 weeks old. 😍😍
Wow time flies! When I was pregnant, time seemed to go by very slowly but since they were born, a day goes by super quickly!
It is almost 4am now…😵
We got up at 3am to feed (expressed breastmilk by bottles) the twins and changed diapers and now I am sitting in the living room pumping some more milk while the babies and hubby went back to bed.
I am getting used to being up every 2-3 hours to feed them…
As for their feeding method,
I have been mostly pumping but still offering breasts in between feeds or before giving them the bottles.
When I cannot keep up with the milk supply, we use formula as well.
I am hoping to find the best way yet.
Pumping takes a lot of time. While I am hooked up to the double pump, I cannot do anything. If I see one of the babies cry, I have to stop the pump, unhook myself, walk over to the baby, comfort him, and come back to try to pump again… Also I cannot pump while I hold a baby to feed.
This is why I sometimes find myself being caught in busy routine of taking care of the babies and forget pumping regularly.
I have been having what appears to be a clogged milk duct now because I skipped a few pumping sessions 😥
I really want to know how to be successful breastfeeding twins.
While bottle-feeding expressed breastmilk seems easier in terms of someone else being able to help feed them with a bottle, pumping often is not as easy as I imagined…
I am still figuring out but I hope to find the best way for both me and the babies!🙌
now pumping is done! good night!!! 😘
(for another one to two hours till babies are hungry again😵)
