I am the mom of a 19 month old girl and am pregnant again. We just found out that we are having twins! Any advice out there from moms of twins? I was really hoping to breastfeed with the new baby, but am not sure how successful I will be with breastfeeding twins! Any advice would be welcome (like if 2 of everything is really necessary)

my cousin's wife pumps for her far as two of everything...My friend is a twin and she said that her parents kept them in the same crib for the first 9 months then she got the crib and her brother got the pack and play. They make such nice travel cribs any more that if space is an issue, I say the only thing that you have to have doubled is the car seat. Best of luck.

you should call your local leche league and ask to talk to a mother who has breastfeed twins
