Jennifer Kolari Discusses the Challenges of Breastfeeding Twins

kolari-crop-thumb-60x66-1733This week at Kolari’s Corner on InfoMommy, Jennifer Kolari answers a question from a pregnant reader who is anxious about breastfeeding her twins.

Jennifer advises nursing moms to eat well, stay hydrated, and get lots of rest. Ask for and accept help to reduce stress. Pump so others can also feed the babies. Be patient – it takes a while to get the hang of nursing two babies at once. Finally, take the time to connect with your babies by smiling and cooing at them in turn. Connecting with your babies this way will reduce both yours and your babies’ stress.

The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
