Tamba’s Breastfeeding Course.
This is a session for expectant parents who wish to find out more about breastfeeding multiples.
Many parents of multiples would like their babies to breastfeed but are unsure if it is possible or how to achieve their aim. This three hour workshop has been devised to give parents of multiples the opportunity to identify what might be helpful in establishing and sustaining breastfeeding by exploring the practicalities of breastfeeding two or more babies and reflecting on how this might fit with their own parenting aims.
Some of the topics that parents will be given the opportunity to explore are:
- What might the experience of breastfeeding multiples be like and how is it different from breastfeeding one baby?
- How can I ensure I make enough breastmilk to feed two or more?
- How might I position the babies at the breast together?
- What challenges can arise when breastfeeding multiples?
- What if our babies are born early?
- How can we develop a pattern of breastfeeding that works for us as a family?
- What role do I have if my partner breastfeeds?
- What if we decide to partially breastfeed our babies?
- Where can we get support with breastfeeding once our babies are born?
