Do you think twin babies are expensive?

I just can’t help but feeling proud of myself that I am still able to breastfeed the boys now, at 10 months. I know, it sounds almost unbelievable to most as it takes a lot of effort to successfully breastfeed one baby, what’s more feeding two.

Yesterday while running my errands, I was talking to some ladies while waiting for my food and they commented that my twins must be “pricey” in terms of spending on milk powder and disposable diapers. Not wanting to explain in details about cloth diapering in a hot coffee shop, I just merely tell them they are not that expensive, apart from being difficult to take care of. Reason is because they are still on breastmilk only, and we have not invest a single sen on formula as of today.
Guess where their eyes go to immediately after that? I bet anyone listen to my answer would shift their eyes to would be anxious to find out if I am that BIG to be able to feed TWO! *common reaction*

I guess what they also mean is everything that you spend on them, you will have to spend double e.g. fee for vaccination, clothes. Then next time, when they are of school-going age, that will include paying 2 times of school fees, exam fees, 2 sets of school workbooks/exercise books, etc.
