I have 3 month old twins. We are planning on driving down to Florida in April (about an 18hour drive BEFORE kids haha.) They will be almost 5 months old then and I was wondering if anyone has any tips about taking long road trips with infants!
Found out we are having twins this summer. What are some must haves for two babies? Already planning to get the weego twin carrier and resigned to having a twin car seat stroller frame (we never kept first born in car seat, she hated it and I couldn’t lug it around).
Breast feeding question. I broke my arm and needed surgery(6 screws) and pain pills.. so clearly I wasn’t breastfeeding. We had switched to formula for the time being. I have been pumping and dumping but day by day my milk supply has been diminishing. I plan on taking my pain meds anymore and once i hit my 20 hours of not taking them, introducing my breast again. Here is the problem.... I have twins and my diminished supply won’t keep up with them. I’m looking for a miracle. A quick fix to have plenty of milk again. Supplements, lactation recipes whatever it may be. Something to help m... More
My twins are 4 months and I have been having issues with producing enough breast milk for both since day one but now all of a sudden I'm pretty much spending all day producing just 1 ounce so now I feel defeated and kind of upset. I am drinking crazy amounts of water I upped my calories and drinking mother's milk tea and I am STILL having problems what do u do? Do I just stop with the breast milk? Is that okay? I'm a first time mom and I am confused, worried and starting to get a little over it honestly...
How can you help a baby learn to self sooth? I have 6 week old twins. And it seems the only thing that can calm them is me... especially my boob. Which I’m trying to break and only use as a last resort. We made the mistake of sleeping in the living room for the first 6 weeks in bouncy chairs. Now that dads back to work we are trying to transition to the bassinets in the master bedroom.... So two part question. How do you help them learn to self soothe so they stop waking each other. And Am I wasting my time with the bassinets in my room.... should we just go straight to the cribs ... More
Proud mama moment!! My twins had their one month check up yesterday! Their pediatrician referred to my milk as “super milk” when they were born. My son was 5lbs 14 oz and my daughter was 4lbs 14 oz. As of yesterday my son now weighs 10 lbs 8 oz and my daughter is 8 lbs 15 oz. They have both about doubled their weight in a month!
Any twin parents on here? I have boy/girl twins that are 19 days old today! Any tips, suggestions, fun facts? Everyone said get them on the same feeding schedule it will make life easier. But so far it seems harder. Especially at night. I don’t make dad stay up with us because they’re exclusively breast fed. No sense in us both being dead tired. I guess I was cocky when I was pregnant saying I wasn’t scared for the infant stage... I was scared for when they were toddlers and into everything. lol welllll boy was I wrong. This is a whole new level...
My best friend just found out she is expecting QUADRUPLETS!!!! Anybody know how I can get companies to sponsor her or send her free products?? Even if it's for the first year; anything helps! Her & her husband are an amazing couple who have been trying for 7 years. They've been blessed x4!! :)
I know everyone has their ideas about siblings vs only children and what that means for parents and kids, but I often think it's strange we only have one offspring at a time... doesn't it make more sense to have twins, or small litters? And wouldn't it make a lot more sense if our babies matured quicker during gestation and on the outside?
Parents of twins What steps did you take until you were tandem feeding? Right now I'm pumping, bottle feeding and latching one twin on. Working on the other but very little progress. The twin latching on takes a bottle too but I'm thinking of just offering my boob. She's getting flustered bc the bottle is so easy. Thoughts? Feeding them separately is taking 2 hours and just killing me and my husband. I need to get them both on the breast!
