ONLINE COURSE – Preparing to breastfeed twins and triplets
One of the main concerns new families have when they find out they are expecting more than one baby is ‘Can I still breastfeed?’ Well, the answer is YES!
There are some more barriers to establishing breastfeeding than if you have a single and full-term baby, but with good knowledge, evidence-based information, and support, it is most definitely possible. And this is where this course is ideal.
Kathryn takes you through all the different scenarios you may encounter when establishing breastfeeding twins and triplets and explain how to approach them. As a mum of twins and lactation consultant who has supported literally thousands of multiple birth families online or in person, I have vast experience of all the common issues.
Topics include preparation and underlying knowledge of milk production and getting a good latch, premature birth and late preterm /early term birth, tandem feeding, expressing and pumping, milk storage, combination feeding, common problems and a whole lot of other things too. You will also continue to have access to this course so you can look back on different topics should those circumstances arise.
