Anyone experience their baby acting hyper active during or after an early (1 am-5am) feeding? My partner & I just had twins (3 months old) and the only way to calm one of them is breast feeding her after her feed. SN: I do offer extra breast milk in her bottle but she doesn’t take and cries for her moms teet (milk boob). Since I am back at work, Early mornings is my only shift to help my p... More
Hey! So here’s my situation first off, first time mom of 7 month old twins. I feel stressed all the time! Husband was deployed the first four months, girls were in the nicu only 9 days but had problems eating the first 3-4 months.

My twins are 13 months old. I still find myself cutting up thejr food very tiny and often times I see kids their same age taking bites out of food. Maybe I need some variety for them? Any ideas for meals for 13 months olds? Realistic ones! We both work. I am tired of giving them finger foods but don’t know where to begin! Thanks!
I have 2 year old twins. I am a special needs teacher as well. Recently, I was hospitalized for dehydration and exhaustion after passing out at work. Lately, I’ve been dealing with my son being overly obsessed with me. He cries when I’m not in the room. He holds on to me. He constantly needs to be near me. If I’m sitting, he’s on top of me. If I’m standing up he’s hanging on my legs and begging... More
I have 2.5 year old twins, who I just signed up for a Mommy and me class at the rec center. My girl adores the class, follows direction etc. My boy on the other hand is a whiny maniac ... Is this just a boy thing? Or should I be worried. All the other kids in the class are pretty well behaved but he is the only boy.
My 14 mo old twins have been an absolute handful lately. I’m talking, tantruming, refusing to nap, not sleeping through the night, unable to sit in a stroller or a shopping cart successfully for more than 10 minutes. It’s like I can’t do anything with them successfully anymore. Changing diapers and their clothes have become a constant fight. Please tell me this is a stage?! Any advice on how to... More
My 14 month old girl twin hits or swats at her twin brother if he reaches for something she has....and sometimes she hits or swats at him for no apparent reason. Also, she’ll snatch an interesting toy from him if she wants it and he’ll cry then move on to something else. He may try to grab it back but she’s stronger and more aggressive so he’s unsuccessful. She’s weighs two pounds more than he ... More
Really struggling to go out with my three girls. They are a handful to say the least. My oldest is almost four, middle is three and a half, and baby is five months. The older two are just awful when it’s time to leave the park, which makes it that much harder to even want to take them. How do you do it? I can’t be the only one struggling
I’m going crazy!! Had my twins on Sept. 16th and my MIL took care of my 2 year old when we were in the hospital and has stayed with us ever since to help out. While she is a lot of help, she’s also really overwhelming me. I’m an introvert and she’s a total extravert and is always talking, often repeating phrases three times for no reason and very loud. While I really appreciate her help, especi... More
My husband is buying us a huge SUV so size of car seat is no longer an issue. What is your recommendation for a great convertible car seat?
Any advice on how to get out with my 4 toddlers using public transportation? My boys are bored out of their skulls once they get out of school and I haven’t a clue on how to safely manage all them solo using public transportation. I have terrible social anxiety especially when I go out with my kids. Seems like all eyes are on me and I dare not make a mistake with anything while out with my boys... More
Please help!!!! We have 13 month old twins and it is time to convert them from the infant car seat to one that can be rear and forward facing. Our SUV is not huge. Are there great car seats that are sleeker and more streamlined? Also, can these car seats be installed without the base but with the seatbelt? Thank you so much!!!!!
Ok, so I admit we have completely failed at getting our twins do the “self soothe” thing. At almost 2.5 years bedtime still involves rocking, cuddling and reading 100 books. In reality, because of my work and our daycare situation it’s always been difficult to keep routine consistent. Anyway, I’m over it taking hours to put them down ... has anyone dealt with this with toddlers??? Any advice? P... More
