MUMS OF MULTIPLES????

Post  Twinmama on Tue Oct 16, 2012 11:29 pm

Hi,

I just thought I'd add a wee post incase there was any Twin mums like me? or mums with more (take my hat off if there is!). Or mums pg with multiples??

My life has went crazy since the Girls were born 6mths ago and I'm still learning to be a mum of 2 babies. I love it and never in my wildest dreams saw myself as I am now with 2 boys then twin girls.

Even if ur not a mum of multiples, I love to chat! Just thought a wee section to support and help each other would be a nice thought?? Smile

I think you are the only multiple mummy on our board! I don't know how you do it! Eapecially with the boys as well.
Do you get much help at all? Do they girls sleep better now? Lily has started waking twice in the night rather than once and I'm sure your girls won't wake at the same time lol

I prob am Kell, just thought I'd post to see if any new people were in fact with 2 or more like me!! (that pic prob looks like me these days) lol

I cope ok, it's getting easier as they get older, although I've been reminded how messy weaning is! When I feed 1 and go to feed the other, the 1st baby will spit it out and rub it all over her face! I got to get a wipe and DD2 has done the same....I just laugh!! Dh and I have laughed our way thru the maddness!! lol

My mum helps when she can and DS1 is almost 10, so with the schools off he can give one their bottle (he likes to help and is so good and has patience), although I can feed 2 at the same time, tandem style. When it comes to food, 1 bowl and 2 spoons and were off!!

They waken alot for dummies, I can be up from 2-10 times between them (diff times) and DD1 is a bit more unsettled at night, she's my placid baby. DD2 is boss and grabs DD1 all the time, pulls her hair when they ly on the mat together, DD2 has the temper (yip, already). Thankfully, no overnight bottles since they were 4mths. But then they did waken about the same time, I'd feed 1 at say 3am, feed her, then the other would waken at 330am/4am and feed. I'd be up from say 3am-5am, luckily they only woke once as can u imagine being up twice for 2hr feeding sessions....

I could go on all night, but would prob bore you all!! and many of you all have babies too, so know what I mean! lol

Why do u think she's wakening more? is she teething? Is she a good baby? x

do you have twins in the family or was it a complete surprise? see two boys and then twin girls is secretly what I'd love even though twins are hard work I just always like the idea and I'm desperate for a girl!

Well jade when your ready to try swaying let me know Wink
We know a great site with some lovely ladies to help!

I think she may have been going through a growth spurt twinmama last night she was back to once so fingers crossed!
I'm excited to start weaning but sad at the same time I really don't want her growing up! Yesterday I got her cot all ready so I can start getting her use to it during the days, but I am sooo not ready for her to leave me at night at the moment!

Jade, my dh is a twin, but fraternal as he has a sister. My girls are identical, so random and not apparently due to dh.

Kell, did she sleep better last night? x
