Demand: Supply and Demand - the stimulation of the breast feeding signals the body how much milk to make. There are two breasts so many twin moms will feed with one on each side. Triplets take some juggling but can be done. Mom needs to drink lots of water, stay on prenatal vitamins, and relax. Stress and fatigue can reduce milk flow. See a lactation specialist.

Depends: Most peopel breast feed for about 6- 12 months, I have seen some women breast feed for up to 4 years you should discuss this with your your baby's pediatrician for that doc's rec.
