The authors report the first published case of premature twins whose adoptive mother induced lactation. Both infants are receiving exclusively human milk (adoptive mother's milk) at 2 months of age. This remarkable achievement reflects careful planning by the adoptive mother beginning in the prenatal period, her active role during the infants' hospital stay, and support from health care personnel and family members. Health care professionals are encouraged to support any adoptive mother who expresses interest in breastfeeding her infant(s). J Hum Lact. XX(X):000-000.
