With a steady increase in multiple births in recent years, people may wonder if a mother of twins, triplets, or more can produce enough milk to feed her babies. The simple answer is: Yes! La Leche League International is proud to announce the revision of a book that will help mothers nurse their multiple babies with confidence.
In the third revised edition of Mothering Multiples: Breastfeeding and Caring for Twins Or More (ISBN-10: 0-9768969-3-1/ISBN-13: 978-0-9768969-3-7), author Karen Kerkhoff Gromada, MSN, RN, IBCLC offers invaluable information with an emphasis on breastfeeding and attachment-style parenting. Many concerns that parents of multiples may have are addressed, including:
Gromada has worked with thousands of mothers of multiples as a La Leche League Leader for more than 30 years and is a registered nurse and lactation consultant. A popular speaker on the topic of multiples, she has been published in the Journal of Human Lactation and various nursing journals. She co-authored Keys to Parenting Multiples for Barron’s Educational Series and was a pioneer columnist for TWINS magazine.
Celebrating 50 years of mother-to-mother support, La Leche League is an internationally recognized not-for-profit organization that is active in more than 63 countries with about 7,000 volunteer LLL Leaders. It was founded in 1956 to provide encouragement and information to mothers who want to breastfeed their babies.
