By the time your babies are about 5 months, they become interested in the world around them. Those days when they used to lay peacefully on your lap while you nursed are over! When your home, this poses no problem but can be extremely annoying when you are out and about. While I’m out, I find nursing one at a time works best. It may take longer but they are able to see their surroundings and I can maintain some type of modesty without four frolicking arms removing the cover from their faces to see what sounds they hear (I suggest purchasing the tommee tippee nursing cover ®). If at least one of your little ones will take a bottle or sippy cup, it may be advantageous to have pumped milk ready to go. When doing this, don’t forget your pump to relieve yourself of discomfort, as well as maintain your milk supply. Remember if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.
I believe that natural is best. If you plan to nurse I say go for it because it can be done. I have nursed my twins without supplementing any formula. I will say though, it does take work. From what I’ve experienced, I suggest nursing both babies at the same time especially as newborns. Cradling one baby and holding the other in a football hold worked best at the beginning but as they got older(and bigger) the cradle holding both of them worked best. I suggest figuring out which way is comfortable and convenient for you.
