Best Twin Breastfeeding Chair

If you are thinking of breastfeeding your twins, you will want somewhere comfortable to do it. But finding a twin-sized chair is not easy (or cheap). We’ve rounded up our favorite twin breastfeeding chairs that will last well beyond your nursing days!

So many things go into a nursery, and a must-have item is a comfy chair. But not just any chair will work, especially when expecting twins. This chair is where you will rock your babies to sleep, read them books before bed, and you will snuggle and stare at those cute little faces, trying to memorize each moment. Not only does the chair need to be comfy, but it also has to be functional. If breastfeeding is in your future, odds are you will spend quite a few night shifts in this chair nursing your sweet twinnies.

So, what chair is best for a twin-sized family?

Types of Chairs

Swivel, glider, recliner….each of these have their own unique functions. Some breastfeeding chairs combine all three, while others may focus on just one. Here’s a breakdown to help you understand their features.

Swivel Chairs

Swivel chairs stand out for their exceptional range of motion. Unlike traditional stationary chairs, these versatile seats allow you to rotate 360 degrees. Swivel chairs are designed for easy movement. They allow you to rotate smoothly in all directions, offering flexibility and convenience.


Gliders offer a rocking motion but in a back-and-forth, smooth, soothing motion instead of rotating. This gentle rocking is perfect for calming both baby and parent during feeding or bonding time.


These chairs kick back for maximum comfort. They usually have built-in footrests, and some “power” recliners have adjustable headrests to fit all heights. Their recline design lets you stretch out and find your perfect lounging position. Whether feeding your little ones or just watching them sleep, a recliner chair provides comfort and support.

Twiniversity Tip: If you’re considering a recliner, get a rocking reclining chair! A rocking recliner combines the best of both worlds: the soothing motion of a rocker and the luxurious comfort of a recliner. It lets you rock back and forth while reclining, offering a relaxing experience that’s hard to beat. Perfect for soothing babies, a rocking recliner is a versatile and cozy addition to any nursery.

Can I use a recliner as a nursing chair?

A hard wood rocker is not the best option as a twin breastfeeding chair.

Yes, you can absolutely use a recliner as a nursing chair for twins! Recliners can offer excellent comfort and support while feeding your babies. Look for a recliner that provides good back support, has padded armrests for comfort, and allows you to recline to a comfortable nursing position. Some recliners even have additional features like swivel and rocking motions, which can be beneficial when nursing twins. Overall, as long as you find a recliner that meets your comfort and functional needs, it can be a great choice for nursing twins.

Size Matters

Now that we know the types of chairs, how big does your twin breastfeeding chair have to be? said chairs are typically between 16 – 20 inches wide, 18 inches tall, and the back about 14 inches high. But can you nurse two babies at the same time in a standard-size chair?   

Spacial awareness in a room is one thing; seat spacial awareness is another. Think about how you’d sit with a baby in each arm. I needed a visual of how much arm space I needed, so I used teddy bears to measure my width.

Do I need a double-wide chair for twins?

If you have the space, opting for an extra-wide chair can be a game-changer! Having more room would have been beneficial. There were a couple of instances where I wished the armrest of my glider was slightly wider to accommodate my nursing pillow more comfortably. So, if you have the space for a double-wide chair, it might be worth it for its added comfort and convenience!
