Breastfeeding one baby can be challenging enough. Breastfeeding two little rascals is whole different ball game. I was lucky enough to breastfeed my first born, Lucas, for 9 months without any major issues. However, when I found out I was expecting twins I had no plans to breastfeed solely or putting them on formula solely – whatever will be will be.
