I admit to having major envy of twin moms who are able to successfully breastfeed. I so wish that we could have gotten there ourselves. But I also know that I literally did everything I could to make this work. Ultimately, the babies have big appetites, and they got hooked on bottles very early. It’s really hard to overcome that. My supply was always one step behind them, and that’s been really hard.
But I also feel proud of myself and I don’t beat myself up too much. I’ve had a ton of support from twitter, internet friends, and real life friends. I know formula won’t harm my babies and I’m sure that they’ll drink it again in time. I think about giving up often, but at this point I’ve finally got my supply up to meet their demand so it seems silly to quit now. I just keep going one week at a time.
