Tandem Twin Breast Feeding Made Easy
Mum of four, Emma Bcheichi from Warrington, found herself in a quandary when the time came to feed her twin baby girls, Faith and Poppy, whilst out in public. She had plenty of experience of breastfeeding after having breastfed both her eldest daughters, but feeding twins – she found – brought its own complications. Invariably when one was crying to be fed, so then sparked the second one’s appetite, and before she knew it, both babies were in need of latching on. In the comfort of her home this wouldn’t present a problem, as tandem feeding had become the norm, sat on her sofa whilst catching up on her studies. But, when out and about it’s quite a different story. She tried many times before, but when one baby was successfully latched on, an awkward latch of the second would present a little tricky without Emma exposing herself.
When the girls were 6 months old Emma was presented with one of Elderflower & Delilah’s newest designs; a breastfeeding garment arrived to sample and trial. The eagerly anticipated Feed® prides itself with the ability to feed twins in tandem discretely whilst preserving the mother’s dignity under cleverly designed winged sleeves. All this, and its design boasts contemporary style, made in a super soft fabric for the comfort of both mum and her babies.
Emma was delighted with the new addition to her wardrobe stating, “It was amazing, it gave me the confidence and freedom to feed on the go whilst maintaining my dignity”; as a mum of four, being free to be ‘on the go’ is vital when running a household full of girls with dance, ballet and hip-hop club commitments every night of the week, there’s hardly a moment to stop.
