Mayo Clinic offers appointments in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota and at Mayo Clinic Health System locations.
If you have twins, you might choose to breastfeed them separately at first to see how each baby is doing. Later, if you'd rather breastfeed them at the same time, try the football hold — with one baby in each arm.
Hold one baby on each side, with your elbows bent. Your babies' backs will rest on your forearms. For comfort, put pillows on your lap and use a chair with broad, low arms.
