    Default One battle won!

    Yay!

    Don't know if any of you remember that I have still been using nipple shields because it was the easiest way to coninue bf the twins. Well today I got a wild hair and decided to try again without them. It took a little work, but I managed to have a successful tandem nursing session with no shields! I know it will take some work to get them used to doing it every time,but it's been great encouragement! Especially since it ended up cutting their nursing time in half!

    Imagine the time you've saved yourself if they truly do cut their nursing times in half! Congrats, and continued good luck without the shield.

    So it's been over a day and still no shields. I'm so proud of them. And I do believe that each session has been shorter too. It's been nice. Still need to work on Alaina's latch some, but I think she's come a long way.

    Woo congrats! We've been using a shield from the beginning as DD had a hard time learning to latch and all that without it. I got lazy with weaning her from it but now we go about 50/50. She likes to use it a lot when she's tired or if she nurses both sides, she usually wants it on the second so I would say don't be discouraged if your DDs want it sometimes too. Maybe for us it's just a habitual thing.

    As much as I appreciate the shield for letting my DD nurse, it's so much easier to nurse without it!

    WOW!! That's HUGE! We used the shield for about 2 months and had a really hard time getting rid of it. I can't imagine trying to get away from it and nursing two babies! In fact, I can't imagine nursing two babies period. You must be a rock star mom; way to go!

    It is definitely not as messy using the shields, that's for sure. Still haven't had to use them again. But I did nurse them more frequently yesterday because they were a bit cranky. Could just be they were tired, starting teething, or are starting a growth spurt though.
