I was only able to nurse my twins for 3 months but am grateful I made it that long! Twins were so much harder, especially when they wanted to eat at the same time and I was by myself. The twins are now 6 months old and never been sick (knock on wood!). I really recommend all moms give nursing a try. Know going in that those first few weeks you may be sore and miserable, but the soreness goes away and you will come to look forward to nursing your baby. It comes to be the peaceful, relaxing time in your day.
