Multiple Births

  • Multiple births: Twins, triplets, and quadruplets are always a possibility.
  • Twins can be either identical (splitting from one egg) or fraternal (two eggs were fertilized at the same time.
  • Twins and triplets can breastfeed, too. With proper positioning, mothers of twins and triplets can breastfeed. Since multiple babies are often premature, you can use a pump or manually express milk for the babies soon after birth.
