Mother Shares A Pic Of What It’s Like To Bʀᴇᴀsᴛꜰᴇᴇᴅ 2 Kids At Once

When Ashley Graham welcomed her twin boys, Malachi and Roman, in January 2022, she decided to ʙʀᴇᴀsᴛꜰᴇᴇᴅ. And that’s exactly what she did for five months.

In the powerful photo, Graham, 34, is seen nursing her nearly 5-month-old twin boys, Malachi and Roman. The model and her husband, filmmaker Justin Ervin, are also parents of son Isaac, 2.

Last month, Graham opened up on her Instagram stories about tandem feeding. In the picture, she was shown sitting upright in a chair.

“This took me a solid few weeks of ᴛʀɪᴀʟ/ᴇʀʀᴏʀ and lots of tears to catch consistently,” she wrote. “My doula who is also a lactation consultant was so kind and gentle with me in helping all three of us figure out how to do this together.”

Jennifer Meyers, a certified nurse-midwife and Mayo Clinic spokesperson, previously told TODAY Parents that twin nursing can be quite challenging.

“It requires a strong milk supply, and often requires extra help and support from family, a spouse or a lactation expert,” Meyers explained. “It’s also important for moms who nurse twins to do so frequently, in order to boost their production and tackle any latch issues as soon as possible to keep up with their babies’ demands.”

Graham is one of many women trying to help ᴇʟɪᴍɪɴᴀᴛᴇ sᴛɪɢᴍᴀ ᴀʀᴏᴜɴᴅ ʙʀᴇᴀsᴛғᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ ɪɴ ᴘᴜʙʟɪᴄ.

“Honestly, the more that we put something out into the world, whether it’s on your social media, whatever it is, I think that’s the most important thing”. “We’ve never had this platform before. We can just truly talk about things that we are passionate about, that we want other people to know about.”

“To me, ʙʀᴇᴀsᴛғᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ, whether you do it or don’t do it as a mother, like, it should just be normalized,” she added.
