March 2010 ~ Issue #018
A comfortable twin nursing pillow is a must if you plan on breastfeeding your twins. But, having a good pillow will also work for bottle feeding twins at the same time. Just think how useful it would be for Dad, Grandma, or other helpers too. Believe it or not, there's not many choices out there when it comes to twin nursing pillows, but I have written about the ones I have found. They are a bit more expensive than the familiar and popular, "Boppy". But, I can say with confidence that the Boppy was not meant for two, as I tried using one while nursing my own twins. The added support you get with a pillow designed for feeding two at a time is the main difference which makes all the difference. Although there are some other design quirks that work well too. You can read on to get more information on available types of twin nursing pillows...
46% answered "If it was less expensive I may consider it."
27% answered "I'm all for it!"
11% answered "There's no way I would do it!"
9% answered "It's just not worth it."
7% answered "I don't think I need it.".

Author and mother of twins, Christina Tinglof is researching another article for TWINS Magazine!
This time it deals with twins and weight. Namely, what do you do when one twin is overweight while the other is not? How do you handle this tricky and sensitive issue? Do you put the whole family on a diet? Do you try to get the entire family outside for a little exercise? In other words, how do you help the twin struggling with weight without comparing that child to his thinner co-twin? If you have young or school-age twins and are personally dealing with this issue, email me your story. As always, I'm forever grateful for the help.
Anyone who is interested in participating can contact Christina by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now taking entries for March!
