Have you tried feeding them both lying down in bed? Might work for the first and last feeds - I do it with babies laying on a pillow folded in half at each side of me - takes a bit of practice getting them in position on your own. We bed share so I roll them off when asleep - which sometimes takes a while/ a couple of goes - but okay if I've got a good book.

I'm afraid you just have to put up with one shouting while you feed the other. I fed each twice, if you see what I mean - an initial thirst quencher then chuck off and feed the other as soon as they start messing about, then a longer appetite filler with each. Hope this works and remember its not too long til you can start weaning.

Twicethehugs - how do you bedshare? do you hae one either side of you? I would worry about them falling out? (i co slept last time but DS was between DH and me?)

One either side of me, bed guard on one side of the bed and a cot pushed against the other side, husband in the spare room - we don't all fit in the bed!
