Mother of triplets breastfeeding at three.

I really REALLY dislike the use of the word ''Still'' in the title.

And if you have seen this on facebook - dont read the comments.

Well done to this mumma, what an awesome effort to be breastfeeding her 3 year old triplets :-D

Oh my gosh! They way that article presents it is just awful. But its great to see a success story for these triplets. It must be so hard to feed 3 newborns in the beginning not to mention all the negativity she probably had to face from others. Good on her!!

I haven't read the article, but I noticed a few friends commented on it, so I looked at the comments. I still can't believe how invested people feel in other's parenting decisions. And entitled to comment on it. It was good to see some great comments though - on why this is even news, taking on those saying there is no nutritional value in bm, and the other generally supportive comments.

What a great story - as someone who's breastfed twins I take my hat off to anyone who can feed more than two!

Pelly, feeding twins seems insurmountable to me. You're a superstar.

IF mum & bubs are healthy, and IF there is good information and support available (very big ifs, I know), breastfeeding can be the easiest thing about having twins. Two boobs, two babies, etc.
Three though, that's just :shock:
