Re: My adopted baby is breastfeeding!!!! picts!

That is so great!!! I'm so happy for you. As for the tandem, it takes practice. I do it with my twins, 8 months. Basically, sit on the couch or wherever and put them both next to me. I latch one on and then just pick the other and latch them on. I just plop them wherever they fit. I actually use an EZ2 nurse twin nursing pillow which is huge and they go in the football hold still on it (it's long and you sit forward with a prop). I also do it without though and I just pop 'em on however I can get them both boob. Sometimes, they are both in cradle hold but with there bodies angled out so that their feet come together like a V on my legs. Does that make sense? You may figure it out soon enough out of necessity. Great Job!!!

Re: My adopted baby is breastfeeding!!!! picts!

how awesome...my friend is looking to adopt. She has a bio daughter and is having trouble concieving. Breastfeeding is something that she wishes she could do. She was told of a hormonal injection that triggers lactation.
