Welcome to the home of Breastfeeding and Attachment Parenting Twins

This site is dedicated to the parents who make the commitment to Breastfeed, and practice Attachment Parenting with their twins. While I was pregnant with my sons, I went surfing on the net to see what information was out there on Twins, Breastfeeding, and AP. I was frustrated at how difficult my search was. I learned that the information was available, but it was scattered under many topics. I designed this site hoping it would help the next person seeking Breastfeeding and Attachment Parenting Twins information.

Update: Ahhhh....It is Autumn....And with the Autumn comes the lovely cool air, apple picking, and the beauty of our land changing into a rainbow of flaming reds, and brilliant golds. My boys are enjoying every minute of their days spent gathering acorns and colorful leaves. They turned three in July, and have started a nursery school program at the Nature Center here in my town. We are also attending a wonderful Mommy and Me program at a lovely Waldorf school a town away. With our days being full and active, my boys have little interest in nursing....All except for a snuggle right before bed. Things are feeling just right for us at the moment, and I could not be happier. I am very proud of the fact that we have maintained our nursing relationship into their fourth year of life. I feel truly lucky and blessed to be a mother.

I have added a new Message Board for this site. I feel that this board will be easier to use than the last one we had. Please take a look and see what you think. Also, I have a new email addy that I am using for now. If you have emailed me over the past two or three months, I may not have received it. Please feel free to email me again.

Mothering Multiples, by Karen Gromada, is the best book I have read as far as parenting twins goes. It covers real life situations, and deals with the "how toos" of breastfeeding beautifully. If you are new to the idea that you will have twins, or have been a parent of twins for a while, you will love this book. I read it when my boys were over a year old, and found it to be very helpful in giving me ideas when I was at my wits end. I highly recommend this book.
