Do you get extra maternity leave for twins?

When should I take maternity leave with twins?
You can take maternity leave any time from 11 weeks before the start of the week when your babies are due. Your obstetrician will give you an idea of when your babies are due, as twins or more tend to arrive earlier than singleton babies. Mums-to-be of twins usually start their maternity leave at 26 weeks.
How do you feed twins at the same time?
Use a twin baby pillow.
These large, U-shaped pillows can work for both breast- and bottle-feedings. For breastfeeding, sit in the center with a baby on either side, head out and feet toward your body (known as the classic football hold). Once they’re in position, they can both nurse at the same time.
How many bottles do I need for new baby?
Size and number: The number of bottles you’ll need to own can range from about 4 to 12, depending on whether you’ll primarily be bottle-feeding or breastfeeding. Start with 4-ounce bottles. They’re perfect for the small amounts of breast milk or formula newborns eat in one sitting.
Can you feed twins from the same bottle?
It takes some practice, but it can be very manageable to feed two babies at the same time. Whether you use formula or pumped breastmilk in the bottles, your tactics for feeding twins may vary depending on their age and size. However, initially, we recommend bouncy seats or infant carriers.
