Feeding Newborn Twins at the Same Time

Megann Sauer, M.D.
​Boys Town Pediatrics

There are several different options for feeding your newborn twins whether you're going to be bottle feeding, or breast feeding, or a combination of both.

When you're bottle feeding your baby you're going to need to have some support because you cannot hold two babies at the same time with two bottles.

I think using boppy pillows supported on a couch or two bouncy seats is one of the best ways to be able to feed both babies at the same time.

If you decide to breast feed your twins this is something you can successfully accomplish.

One of the best tools to use is a specialized nursing pillow specifically for twins.

This allows you to be able to breast feed both babies in tandem, which will save you the most time.

​Having twins can be overwhelming especially when it comes to feeding time. Dr. Megann Sauer​, pediatrician at Boys Town Pediatrics, offers some advice on how to feed both of your babies at the same time.​​
