FEED® for tandem twin breast feeding

Hi Delilah,

Things are moving pretty quick this end, with excitement mounting for the launch of the website. The Twin and Multiple Birth team members (www.tamba.org.uk) are getting excited too with the Feed® recognised as a breastfeeding garment that allows for tandem feeding of babies, check out our latest article that raves about it’s benefits…..

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.

Beautiful night in Sydney

Hi Elderflower,

We have had a cracking first week of spring. The weather is beautiful and the afternoons are just starting to come back that hazy summer feel. I love it.

Not to make you jealous, but my goodness look at the sunset tonight, it was like a scene from Flash Gordan!

Oh goodness, weaning. Byron was ok, he was open to trying new things and as you say I felt it was time as he seemed to be distracted at feeding time, especially as he was becoming so alert and wanted to be involved in every other thing going on around him. Funny, I was only chatting about breastfeeding with a friend of mine today, and we laughed about the fact that she was given one of those aprons as a gift. It was red and she said that she felt like a flashing beacon – she said most people would stare at her with a weird curiosity in there eye like they were thinking “Oh so what do we have in there?”. Seriously, don’t we deserve a little more than an apron, or giant bib! I saw a poor lady with one today, and it had a glaring pattern over it. Forget the flashing beacon, I wasn’t thinking “what’s in there” I was thinking more about buying the lady a white sheet, cutting a hole and assuring her she would look and feel a whole lot more comfortable! Anyway, slightly off topic. Oh yeah, weaning. You’ll be fine, Annie will be fine. She’ll let you know when she’s had enough.
