I'm 14 years old and on September 7 my birthday I just gave birth to twin girls Lada and Marianna
They are both healthy Lada 5lbs 6oz and Marianna 5lbs 4oz which the doctor said was a good size for twins for someone my size 110 lb i'm taking off school for the next week and I'm being homeschooled for the next year so I can get my babies started well plus I wanted to breast-feed them I also cosleep I don't want to hear any heater comments on that either because my two girls sleep the best when they're in my arms tomorrow I get to check out of the hospital I have a great boyfriend he's been with me for two years my mom is very supportive and so is my father my mom gave birth when she was 16 with my brother and has been with my dad ever since then went to college and became a doctor even with a baby. Anyway my babies have been gaining about an oz to a half an ounce every day oh and Lada was 17 in and Marianna was 16 and 1/1 in if anybody has any pointers or any similar experiences of having a child at a young age please tell your stories and experiences I would love to hear it thank you !!!!!!

Maria - start right now sleeping your babies on their tummies. They will sleep more soundly and will get out any burps or gas. They will also get stronger sooner and develop quicker. They will be happy and you will too! I'm a mom of 5.

I think it is wonderful that you have supportive parents in this situation and that your boyfriend is still with you. It is great to hear. I suggest (after your year) leaving your babies with your mom if she is stay at home or taking them to a daycare with amazing reviews. Also ask your school (if they have a day care for teacher's kids) if you can keep your babies there. I had my daughter when I was 21 and in college. My boyfriend and I took care of them, though it was tough we managed, also since I was close to home I'd drop them off with my mom sometimes when she was home. My now husband proposed a week after they were born. We are now a happy family and with hard work and dedication you can do this!
