Multiple Births

  • Multiple births: It could happen to you - Twins, triplets, and quadruplets. Throughout history humans have occasionally given birth to more than one baby at a time.

  • Twins and triplets can breastfeed, too - With proper positioning, mothers of twins and triplets can breastfeed. Since multiple babies are often premature, you can use a pump or manually express milk for the babies soon after birth.

  • Twins: Double the trouble, double the fun - Twins can be either identical or fraternal. You may be more likely to have twins under certain conditions.
