I have asked this question before, but it appears to have disappeared into a black hole.
Anyway, my twins were born at 28 weeks and are now 12 months old (9 months corrected). I'm trying to get them onto a regular eating schedule and the suggested pattern is breakfast, milk, lunch, milk, supper, milk. The last milk feed before bed is supposedly very important and they still need a minimum of 500ml a day. My two get up at 7am and go to bed at 7pm. How on earth am I supposed to fit all those meals into one day! I can't feed them every 2 1/2 hours, especially now that they insist on feeding themselves and a meal takes 45 minutes instead of 10 mins. Any ideas/suggestions? How do other moms do it?
