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!
