    Beautiful, beautiful babies, Anon! They’re so eager to nurse—that’s adorable.

  • Amy Tuesday, January 30, 2007, 1:56 pm

    I was about to say Beautiful..then realized everyone else said the same thing.

    it makes me cry. i love the sight of little babies gazing up with those newborn eyes as they nurse with trust & gratitude for the 1st time. i can only imagine the love in mama’s eyes as she gazes right back at her precious gems. good job, mama!

  • Liz Tuesday, January 30, 2007, 5:34 pm

  • Elizabeth Tuesday, January 30, 2007, 8:15 pm

    What a rarely seen picture! I wish so many more mothers of multiples would try to breastfeed. Good for you and them!!

    I’ve come back to the site several times just to see this picture. It puts such a wide smile on my face. Thanks for sharing.

  • Kier Thursday, February 1, 2007, 8:31 pm

    This is my favorite pic on the entire site! What an amazing feeling you must have had! I cannot wait to birth my second daughter (this June) and nurse her for the first time!!

    I’d love to hear an update on how the twins are doing with breastfeeding!

  • Renee Friday, February 2, 2007, 6:05 am

    Do you have multiples? If so and you are breastfeeding good for you. I have twins and am not breastfeeding, not by choice,but because they do not want to nurse. So, maybe next time you might want to watch what you say, because you do not know everyones situation….breastfeeding is not an easy thing to do and you have offended me!

  • Rachael Monday, February 5, 2007, 1:39 pm

    Wow, what a beautiful picture, brought tears to my eyes.

  • Michelle Tuesday, February 6, 2007, 1:43 pm

    The beauty of this shot, with the earnestness of the babies, made me tear up. It’s a remarkable portrait.

  • Cheryl Tuesday, February 6, 2007, 2:14 pm

    Beautiful!!!

  • Jennifer Tuesday, February 6, 2007, 6:13 pm

    That brought tears to my eyes. Breast feeding is an amazing experience. Love the photo!

    —I really don’t think that she was trying to talk down about women who are unable to breastfeed b/c of physical/mental issues or b/c the babies just won’t nurse. She said that she wished more people would *try*, and obviously you did. I think she was just expressing concern that a lot of women don’t try breastfeeding at all, maybe b/c they think it’s too difficult/inconvenient/gross/weird/whatever, or b/c they think formula is somehow better, or b/c it’s just the way that their parents did it. I’m not saying that breastfeeding is easy or that everyone can do it. But I think everyone should try it at least once to see if it works and if it’s right for them.

    BTW, that is a *wonderful* photo!

  • bethcw Friday, March 30, 2007, 8:53 pm

    What a beautiful picture! It has put a huge smile on my face – the eyes on your little ones looking at you -just precious! TFS!

  • Kaia Wednesday, April 18, 2007, 10:36 am

    Tears come to my eyes as I see the joy in your babies and I can only imagine the feeling in your heart.
    My twins were born 7 wks premature. We did not get the chance to immediaetly start to nurse. They were in the NICU for 5 wks and my time to be with them and to nurse was limited and awkward. When we were all home we had the oppurtunity to tandem nurse. Wow, amazing experience.
    Once again so beautiful and so lucky.
    How are your babies now?

  • Idoia Sunday, August 10, 2008, 7:16 am

    This photo gives me so much hope! I’m pregnant with twins and I’m totally shocked at how unsupportive of breastfeeding people have been. I know a lot of moms have trouble with it, but it’s worth a shot! Congratulations on two beautiful babies.

  • kasondra Monday, August 18, 2008, 4:17 am

    i am currently pregnant with fraternal twins as well ( i see one of your babies is blue and the other pink =) ) i am very excited to know that breastfeeding is still an option with multiple birth and shouldn’t be given up on. i actually just stopped breastfeeding my son ( being pregnant and breastfeeding was just strange for me) at almost 2….so i am looking forward to starting again with 2 babies this time. congratulations on your little miracles….and good luck!!!

  • Amanda Friday, September 26, 2008, 6:10 am

    Gorgeous picture! I’ve always told people that even if I had twins or triplets I’d breastfeed and they always look at me like I’m crazy! Good for you!

  • Allison Sunday, September 28, 2008, 8:11 pm

    I didn’t breastfeed my twins, but that’s ok. What I did notice was the BDU sleeve and I am wondering where you are?!?! I am ADAF with twins at Hurlburt, FL. Can you send me an e-mail if you’re closeby? We Mamas of multiples need to stick together!

  • Patricia Monday, December 8, 2008, 11:16 pm

    Kudos!! I have twins girls and I remember the first double-latch like it was yesterday. It’s a magical moment. Keep going I’m still nursing my twins at 2.5 years and they’re still really benefiting.

  • mee. =) Tuesday, May 26, 2009, 9:47 pm

    awe.

    good job mama.

    =)

  • Jessica Fuss Sunday, April 17, 2011, 7:18 am

    gorgeous. this SHOULD be one of your proudest moments. :-)
    I am a birth doula and recently helped a mother of two birth her babies. One of my most moving moments in my 7 years of doula-ing was when i brought her first born baby to her, while her second born twin was beginning to find the breast on her own. She finally had both babies on her skin, both looking for the breast on their own. i cried, sobbed, thought it was the most beautiful thing ever.

  • Kayla Monday, April 25, 2011, 7:30 pm

    That is the sweetest picture! This made me want to cry. Very sweet.

  • Mommyto4boys Tuesday, July 26, 2011, 11:12 am

    Wonderful! You should be very proud of yourself and your sweet babies! My twins did not nurse well, (they were in the NICU for 2 weeks)so I pumped for 6 weeks… how I wish I could have nursed them. What a wonderful bonding time! Kudos to you!

  • lyshia Wednesday, March 28, 2012, 12:48 am

    For newborn babies, fiesta then siesta XD

  • Melissa Saturday, May 5, 2012, 10:52 am

    thank you for posting this! it makes me remember what i should be focusing on as a mama of 4 month old, full-term, breastfeeding twins…

  • April Thursday, July 5, 2012, 8:22 pm

    I have been browsing through this site and really love it! I was not expecting to feel so emotional about a picture though. I immediately started crying. This was my favorite moment after having my twins. It was magical. It was just like that but I have no pictures to remember it by. I am so happy you posted this. My mind has been flooded with wonderful memories. My girls are now 17 months old. Time flies.
