Breastfeed. Blot. Repeat.
We moms must become masters of multitasking if we want to leave the house, like, ever. And never has there been a more impressive example of a mom making it all happen, all at once, than new mom-of-twins Terricka Cromartie, wife of NFL cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
The football player recently captured Terricka on video breastfeeding one of their newborns, while applying makeup in preparation for date night. And let's just say, this mama is no amateur!
"I got that #MilkMoney.. 1st time I'm leaving my babies for more than a hour. But 1st let me empty this Milk real quick. SuperMom #breastfeedingmommy #mommystillneedsalife," the caption to the video, which Cromartie posted to Instagram where it has subsequently been viewed 19,000 times, reads.
Here's hoping the couple enjoyed their first night out together since welcoming their twins, son Jynx and daughter J'adore. Especially since, ahem, the supersized edition to their family wasn't exactly planned.
In fact, Cromartie had undergone a vasectomy, and the parents-of-four (daughter Jurzie is 5 and son Jagger is 3, and Cromartie has eight children from previous relationships) were shocked to learn they were pregnant last October, following the procedure.

Of course, now that the babies are here, there's no doubt the Cromarties' shock has melted into true love...and the daily reality that having newborn twins means breastfeeding around the clock! No wonder Terricka has learned to breastfeed and blot!
