Did you use a twin feeding cushion?

I'm planning on mostly bottle feeding. Just wondering if one of those cushions is useful?
Thanks

I'm breastfeeding my 14.5 week olds and the twin feeding cushion has been invaluable for me.

I don't tandem feed them for every feed but when I do, I find the pillow excellent.

I use a My Brestfriend pillow which is similar to the Harmony Duo.

Lots of bottle feeding twin mums use the twin z style pillow to tandem feed with both babies propped up in it.

I think it's personal choice really, some people manage fine without a pillow and some (like me!) love theirs smile

I bottle fed my twins and bought the V shape memory pillow for £34.99 from Dunelm Mill. I could then bottle feed both babies at the same time.

Does take some practice getting into position but I would pop the twins on the sofa or bed either side of where I was planning to sit. Placed pillow on lap so the V point was facing away from me and then put one baby on each side so their heads would be together. Big timesaver for me!

Good luck smile

I breast fed my twins but never together. I felt it was important for them each to have one-to-one time (even if it did take all day for the first few weeks!)

I'm mix feeding my 2 week olds and a midwife showed me how to hold them for bfing. It took some getting used to but is comfortable enough without a pillow. If they do wake at the same time for a feed I prop them up on a large cushion and bottle feed them on that. I probably should invest in a proper feeding pillow

I used a harmony duo feeding pillow for breastfeeding and use it now for bottle feeding. Fab....I love it!
