Can the Cozy Cuddles Nursing Pillow be used to breastfeed twins?

Here’s a question emailed to us by Elise G.:

Q: I would like to know if it is possible to breast feed two babies at the same time with your pillow? I’m pregnant with twins and I never breastfed in my life so I don’t know anything about it but I want to try it for sure..so would your pillow help me do that?

Football Hold - TwinsA: Thanks for inquiring about the use of the Cozy Cuddles Nursing Pillow for twins!  Yes, absolutely you can nurse both babies at once using our pillow – many, many customers have done just that!

Most mothers use the “football” or “clutch” hold to do this, and in this position you tuck one baby under each arm and the pillow supports them.  You can see this position pictured on the graphic here.

Laid Back NursingYou can also feed them in three other positions – the front cross (both in the cradle hold), one in football hold and one in cradle hold, or the upright latch where the Mom uses the “laid-back” position.  In this graphic, Mom is nursing one baby in the laid-back position but both twins can be nursed at once positioning them this way.

Our pillow has been featured in twin publications and also on a TV show on twins, when 18-month-old twins were featured, still nursing with their Cozy Cuddles Nursing Pillow!!

Lying on TummyHere Sitting Up Babyyou can see other uses for the Cozy Cuddles Nursing Pillow as well. They can lie on it on their back from newborn to be propped up (to see what’s going on in the room or to play with their “play gym” toys, for supervised “tummy time” once they gain neck strength, and later (around 6 months) for giving them support as they learn to sit up.  Many parents of twins use two Cozy Cuddles pillows for these purposes.
