Multiple Pregnancy: Twins or More - Home Treatment

After the babies are born continued...

Consider joining a support group for parents of twins or more. Sharing your experience with other people who are in a similar situation may help you with the demands of caring for your babies. For more information, see the Other Places to Get Help section of this topic.

Breast-feeding?Breast-feeding more than one baby can be challenging, but it helps to build the bond between you and each baby. It gives your babies excellent health benefits. If you plan to breast-feed your babies, seek out support and information from your health professional, the hospital, or a lactation consultant before and after the birth. For more information, see the topics Breast-Feeding and Bottle-Feeding.

Parenting. Look for your new babies' personality differences and help them build their own identities over time. Give each of your children time alone with you. If you have an older child or children, schedule individual time with them too.
