I bought this book during my twin pregnancy, and while I agree with the reviewers who say this book is wonderful encouragement for moms who hope to breastfeed twins, I would warn those who purchase the book to also purchase other books, such as Mothering Multiples (the La Leche book). In addition, a lactation consultant who comes to your house, and will answer emails and phone calls, is a MUST.
On the good side, Rudat offers very practical advice, especially the step by step portion on how to tandem breastfeed the babies (including pictures), and she has great tips on how to successfully breastfeed through proper nutrition and hydration.
However, there are a lot of obstacles and difficulties that come up with nursing twins that Rudat does not fully address - for instance, she has a section on plugged ducts that she casually mentions, because she never really experienced them. Also, there is an overall tone of superiority throughout the book - I was very determined to breastfeed my babies at all costs because I felt that if Rudat could do it, so could I. However, this attitude is not the healthiest - if a woman is going through postpartum depression, sore nipples, poor milk production (a definite reality when nursing twins), fussy hungry babies, and extreme exhaustion, it can be detrimental to everyone involved (mom, dad, babies) for a mom to be so determined to breastfeed at the expense of everyone's sanity and health. I know this because I was one of these moms. I strongly support breastfeeding, and I feel that all obstacles associated with nursing twins can be overcome through hard work, determination, and the advice of a lactation consultant; however, I also support those mothers who decide for whatever reason that they need to make the switch to formula. And I feel that Rudat does not support this at all, because her breastfeeding experience was relatively easy.
I suggest that if you decide to purchase this book, that you also read a variety of other women's experiences, find a good lactation consultant before the birth, and most importantly, keep an open mind. Any amount of breastfeeding is good for the babies, and you should not feel guilty in any way for making the decision to feed formula. The babies' happiness, and YOUR happiness, is paramount.
