Today we have a guest post from Kimberly at Team Cartwright. I love this post, because she gives us the raw, real attitudes of people when breastfeeding a singleton versus twins. It is very interesting to see her different experiences having both a singleton and twins. Everything from the information provided to mothers, to the expectations, pressure and more is discussed. Very interesting read!



“Most moms know the debate that rages between formula feeding and
breastfeeding.  Sure, scientifically breastfeeding offers some
advantages.  It can help build immunity and is customized to your specific
baby.  And formula feeding isn’t without its merits.  For one it is a
literal lifesaver for women who can’t produce enough breastmilk.  It takes
pressure off of moms as the sole food source and lets moms get back to work
more easily.  I think the logical thing to do is offer up education on
both methods, the pros and cons, and then focus on helping each mother do what
is best for her family.  Sounds easy enough, right?  Yet it doesn’t
work that way.  So I’m going to introduce a new perspective into the
debate.  Twins
versus singletons.
  I have a singleton and I have
twins.  They have all been fed adequately.  But I had very different
experiences when it came to how I was going to feed those children.  Is
formula vs breastmilk that different when you consider how twins are treated
compared to singletons? What can twins teach us about breastfeeding attitudes?”
