Breastfeeding Twins

Well, last night was our Twins Breastfeeding class.  Gotta love the double football hold!  Not to mention, the myriad of products available these days:

Breastfeeding, despite all the contraptions and get-ups used today, is a natural act that is obviously great for our babies.  But, as our consultant pointed out last evening, there are also several benefits for mothers as well.  Mothers who breastfeed:

  • Generally lose their pregnancy weight faster (YIPPEE!!)
  • Tend to store less fat on their thighs (WOOHOO!!)
  • Have a greater reduction in hip size in the 2nd and 3rd months postpartum (COOL!!)
  • Reduce their risk of breast, ovarian, and cervical cancers!
  • Are calmer and more relaxed.

It’s also suggested that breastfeeding will save you about 8-10 hours a week (getting bottles ready, washing them, etc.)  And, considering that raising twins is rumored to take a total of 125 hours out of a 168 hour week, bring it on!

Gotta run… pep talk time for my milk makers.
