Number of Breast Feeds
Dear Helen

Thank you for your reply I received some time ago. It was fortunately only for a short period of time that our baby girl did not want to eat while settled for the night. I breastfeed both of them, and we have cut back to two breastfeeds in the morning and the evening. They are thriving and all in all I have two happy girls and soon will be ready for day-care.

There is just one thing I would like to know: May I cut back on the morning breast feed now that they are 11 1/2 months old? (they are still 1 months premature) or should I continue with two breast feeds until 12 months? I have read that you recommend two bottle feeds until the age of 12 months, but what about breast feeds?

It would be great whether I could cut back the morning breast feed now that we have to get up early and eat breakfast before leaving the house.

Best regards
The Twin Mother
