I was finally able to nurse on my left hand side! My left nipple does not stick out as far as my right side so its been a battle. With DD my nipples were inverted and there was nothing I could do to get them out to nurse her :(. So I had to pump. I was very happy when my nipples didn't play peek a boo this time around. My milk on my left side was being dramatically affected by at least an ounce because i would pump for DS1 instead of BF. I made sure he had a good feeding so he wasn't "starving" for milk this time around. Then just kept shoving it in until he got the hang of it. DS1 was my lazy nurser and feeding him in the beginning would take HOURS. So I pumped to feed him. He does very now that he is almost a month old and can now nurse and sleep at the same time. DS2 does has always been a beast on the right hand side. Since he was smaller I gave him the easier side. It is kinda funny since he was the smaller of the two to watch him be so aggressive about feeding.
Now to my question about bfing twins..
I see MoMs that actually feed both babies at once. I tried this a few times and I found it to be overstimulating. I can handle one baby on one boob.. but both seems to be to intense. I have two boppies and set them football style. My nipples have always been very sensitive. So I am wondering if its just getting used to it.. or maybe a cream that will desensitize me? It just feels really weird. I would like to get them feeding at the same time at night. It kills me for them to wake up back to back and never getting any sleep. My husband is going back to work fulltime which means I will have to step up and have them with me most of the night instead of only during the day.
