I have an 18 month old daughter and I am currently 4 months pregnant with twins! NOBODY I know has ever had twins, there are no twins in my family or my husband's family to ask advice from! I have a few questions/concerns that I would SO appreciate some advice for!
I plan on breastfeeding them like I did my daughter. ANY advice for nursing twins in general or how to handle my daughter while nursing twins would be greatly appreciated.
Do I really need two of everything? i.e. swings, bouncers, play mats etc etc. Or will I really regret only having one of these things?
Is there anything you had or wish you had had in preparation for bringing home twins?
I look about 6 months pregnant, I'm getting new stretchmarks already and am really uncomfortable already, what can I do and how much worse will it get? lol (On this note, I would like to apologize to any moms of twins that I may have complained to about how "hard' my singleton prenancy was! lol)
How can I prepare my daughter, who will be just shy of 2 when they're born, for not just ONE baby...but TWO!!!!
Best tips for surviving the first month or so of newborn twins?
Thanks so much ladies, I am absolutely terrified about bringing home two babies and caring for them and my daughter and the house (I'ma SAHM) and everything else, any advice or suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!
