How do you breastfeed multiples? Which formula should I use on my preemie twins? I want my multiples to have play dates, (other than each other), but I don't know where to take them? None of my other mom friends have multiples or understand what I'm going through? All of these questions and much more can be answered by joining a local multiples club.


Multiples club are a valuable resource and wealth of knowledge for parents of multiples. Fellow parents of multiples have been there and done that and understand your situation best. Often you will discover that the problems and frustrations you encounter in raising your multiples have been experienced by other members and it is extremely beneficial to discuss them with someone who understands - because they have been there! Their suggestions and insight can mean a great deal. Being a parent of multiples can be challenging, but it is definitely a special thing.

Club activities include, but are not limited to, monthly meetings with guest speakers, mothers' night out, age appropriate playgroups, social gatherings, holiday parties, consignment sales, multiples library, and much more.

Support Groups
by: Teaching Tiny Tots

If there are no support groups in your area, see if there is a local forum for mommies. Try the mommies network which has groups in over 25 states. This was very helpful when I first moved and helped me find activities to do with other moms even if they didn't have twins.

Another option is if you live in a subdivision, some have group forums where you can arrange play dates.

Good luck!!
