I've been extremely exhausted even with help caring for my twins. During the day it is just nonstop with them crying, needing to be fed and burped, needing their diaper changed, and then crying just because they want to be picked up. I try so hard to be fair to both. The thing is, I'm running so low on energy and don't know how to recharge. I have to pump in between their feedings so they constantly have enough breast milk. So even when I can take a nap I still have to wake up to pump or I will be in a lot of pain. The twins are currently 2 1/2 months. They were born prematurely so they are basically a month behind full term babies in terms of development. We also don't see response smiles from them yet, they only smile on their sleep. That is hard on us emotionally not getting a response from your child when your acting goofy and they look at you with s blank stare. Then we see our friends kids babies and they are laughing and cooing. Does anyone have any advice on any of these things I mentioned above. Would love to hear other moms stories and or advice on how to get thru this infant stage of their lives.
