I wish I had seen your question sooner. I am a mother of twins who was able to breastfeed them successfully throughout their infancy. Those little girls grew up to have babies of their own which they also breastfed.:)

I had advice from another mom of twins from my local La Leche League which made all the difference. I know this might be coming too late now, but just in case it is not --

I drank 15 glasses of water a day. I increased my milk supply by feeding in short, frequent bursts, and over a couple of days the milk supply grew substantially.

That's pretty much it. Sounds really simple but if I hadn't been told to try this I would never have been able to feed them.

If you have switched to bottle-feeding, please don't feel bad! It's not easy nursing twins, and without some help and information, it's impossible. My first baby was bottle-fed, and in that case I was disappointed and felt bad about myself because I had wanted so badly to breastfeed and circumstances prevented it.

But that baby is now a full-grown man who is healthy and strong, and 6'2" tall.:) And if you are bottle-feeding, there are advantages to it. Don't feel guilty about it! Your children can grow and thrive, and life can be good.:)

Good luck either way:)

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for help. We do not prescribe medication. You need to speak with your obstetrician or lactation nurse for help.

I am not familiar with a medication called excluton. Do you mean Exuton, which is used to prevent pregnancy?
