Bottle feeding twins

  • If you are bottle feeding your babies, if you can feed each baby separately this separate closeness and touching can help with bonding with the baby. If you try to feed them together you will find you are holding the bottles, not the babies!
  • Have a look at our topic 'Bottle feeding - feeding your baby with formula'for more information.
