Our expert says:
Congratulations on the birth of your twins - you must be so proud! However, breastfeeding twins is a tough job and you will feel hungry because you are feeding 2 babies. If possible, I would like to recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area).
The dietitian will work out an individual diet prescription for you and the twins to ensure that you don't gain weight and that the children receive all the nutrients they require for healthy growth and development. Because of your bigger responsibility, it would be best if you do see a dietitian.
Enjoy the babies
