40 year old mom of 5 month old b/g twins needs advice!

Karolyn - posted on 06/05/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I had the twins 1-23-13. They are my world. Only thing is we live in the mountains of Tennessee. I have no family. It is soooo mentally challenging to care for b/g twins without help. My husband tries but just doesn't deal well with the crying moments. For 5 months I have gotten no more than 3 hrs of sleep in increments. I am breastfeeding both so it would be hard to sleep even if I could! Some days all I do is think. What if, remembering the days of actual sleep! But, all in all I am so happy I have them in my life or I would be alone! Any one else relate?

Hi Karolyn. Sounds like you've got your hands full! I can relate to the no-family nearby, but not the twins. Can you find some mom groups through your hospital or organizations like La Leche League or Mommy and Me? Do any (helpful) family members have some flexibility to come and help for a few weeks?
