Double the work! Meghan King Edmonds opened up about what it is like to breast-feed her newborn twin boys, Hayes and Hart, at the same time.
“I mean, feeding two at the same time is, like, next level,” the Real Housewives of Orange County alum exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I just thought it would be so easy and it’s not. So it’s definitely nice to be surrounded by family.”
Edmonds and her husband, Jim Edmonds, welcomed their sons on June 5. The couple are also parents of 18-month-old daughter Aspen. The reality TV personality added that her nanny, who the pair consider “family,” helps her balance having three kids.
“I tried to prepare myself as best as I could for two,” she tells Us. “I have a nanny, she lives with us, and so I basically just told her that when the twins came, I would have her just focus on Aspen, so that way we could just keep everything the same for Aspen as much as possible, cause she’s used to her nanny, and then I could focus on doing everything with the twins.”
She continues: “And we also hired night nurses, so we have night nurses to be with the twins throughout the night, but like I said I’m breast-feeding, so I’m still waking up every three hours to pump,” Edmonds added. “So I mean, all in all it’s a lot of work, but we’re really lucky that we, like, have the resources to have a nanny, and my mom is in from St. Louis, so she’s been amazing.”
Edmonds, who starred on RHOC for three seasons, announced in January that she was not returning for season 13 of the Bravo hit. She did, however, tell Us that she plans to watch the show when it returns in July, and reveals she recently texted with former costar Tamra Judge.
“I talked to Tamra the other day, I don’t know if she gave advice as much as she was just like, ‘You’re a rockstar,’” Edmonds revealed. “Tamra and I text a lot. She was just asking me how’s it going, basically how I’m feeling. She had a natural birth with her first baby, so she was like, ‘Oh my gosh, why would you ever want to do that again?’ That was it, basically she was just checking in. Like, ‘You’re incredible.’”
