Previous Next 5 of 5 Breast-feeding: Football hold for twins

If you have twins, you might choose to breast-feed them separately. This can be helpful when you are first starting to breast-feed. Later, if you'd rather breast-feed them at the same time, try the football hold — with one baby in each arm.

Hold each baby at one side, with your elbows bent. Your baby's backs will rest on your forearms. For comfort, put pillows on your lap and use a chair with broad, low arms.
