Breastfeeding Twins through the Years

I am still blown away that we’ve been able to do this. I remember I told myself when I was pregnant with them, if breastfeeding doesn’t work, then it doesn’t work. I am not going to let my mental health suffer over it.

I actually think that’s what I tell all expecting parents: “Lower your expectations.” Seriously. And if you exceed them, then you can be pleasantly surprised rather than let down.

So that’s where I am now, pleasantly surprised. Although now I am trying to avoid concussions from being hit in the head with Cora’s cast while she’s nursing 🤪.

I still have to pump 2 x a day on days I work because I’m gone for 12 hours and my supply would totally tank if I didn’t. Otherwise, I have weaned from the pump 🙌.

We will see if there will be a 2023 picture – it’s still a mutually agreed upon situation. I actually think Avery would be ready to wean but Cora most definitely is not and then Avery sees Cora nursing and she gets jealous 😂.

So here’s to extended breastfeeding and normalizing it… with twins!
