I breastfed for 10 months, and weaned off of it about 6 weeks ago. Since then, it’s been nonstop colds, fevers, sniffles, even a round of bronchitis and sinus infection. (Babies are in daycare full time.) Did anyone else experience a “rebound” phase like this, of constant illness once the breastfeeding ended? How long will this last?
I really need some advice in regards to potty training my three year old twins. They were premature, born three months early, so they’ve been a bit behind. Which is expected. That being said, I feel like they are ready to learn; they tell me when they’re dirty or sometimes even ask to go potty, they just don’t want to continuously do it. I’ve been trying to potty train them, but it ends with th... More
Hi everyone, I know I asked a similar question a while ago but the closer I get to my trip the more anxious I am getting! This coming Monday we are driving to Florida with my 4.5month old twins. Does anyone have any tips or advice on changing/feeding/entertaining them in such close quarters?? I just don't want to experience an 18+hour nightmare :/ thanks in advance!

Parents of twins, I need help! I already have a 22 month old and now am 10 weeks pregnant with identical twins. What do I actually need 2 of?! I always planned on just two kids total so this is a big adjustment but a blessing of course. I know I’ll need to get a minivan to fit all the car seats and assume I’ll need 2 cribs and things like that but curious what else, and what advice you’d give s... More
My husband is having a really hard time adjusting to my 4month old twins and its putting a strain on my marriage. He gets frustrated at the drop of a dime if they cry or fuss. He'll just yell and put them down and walk away if they don't settle after 2-3minutes of him trying to calm them down. It is making things really hard for me because it's already challenging having two babi... More

Here is the problem.... I ... More

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.... ... 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!
