We run an hour long online course for anyone interested in breastfeeding multiples. The course focuses on the challenges of breastfeeding twins and triplets and provides information specific to those challenges. Please be aware that in an hour it is not possible to cover in detail general information on how to breastfeed.

The course is delivered by an NCT Breastfeeding Counsellor or an NCT Breastfeeding Peer Supporter who are also mothers of multiples.

What topics are covered?
  • How to make enough milk for two or three babies?
  • Getting breastfeeding started?
  • How to hold and position the babies
  • How to attach the babies at the breast
  • Feeding in tandem or individually?
  • Feeding premature babies
  • Expressing and mixed feeding
  • What and where to seek support

There will be Q&A at the end of the session. The course will be recorded and everyone booked onto the course will be automatically emailed the course recording and handouts within 48 hours of the live course. 

If you would like a recording of a previous session please e-mail us.
