Okay so mi twin babygurls are having major issues trying to go to the bathroom this has been a problem since birth, but the doctor is telling me "O its nothing" or try doing this... maybe you need to try an do this. Giving mi daughters prepscription laxtatives that dont do anything! I know its something wrong! I have called different doctors offices for second opinions, waiting to hear back something. Mi lil gurls have the hardest time pooing its very hard/ an solid comes out about 6-8in long they cry, scream, like they are in soooo much pain; scream like they just cant take it an looks at me like 'mommy please help me!' The daycare teachers, mi mother, and sister have witness these disturbing incidences its a everyday thing just about whenever the gurls have to go to the bathroom I can always tell. They will stop whatever it is there doing and start sniffing up an crying and I cant do anything about it! I try to help they out taking off there clothes/ diapers opening there lil butt cheeks so it will come rite on out, ONLY if I help them then blood comes out of there rectum! I think this Qualifies as a problem! A problem that I VOW to get to the bottom of b4 it gets any worst! Please if you've heard or if you know what this could be feel free to comment or any advice that will help in the mean time until a Gastroenterogist contact me about doing a GI test on mi babies I would gladly appreciate it thanks in advance!

i have 19 month old b/g twins and i am getting ready to start potty training them as well.. my biggest challenge i think will be the night time because their room is upstairs and the only bathroom is down stairs.. soo i think i am going to get an actually potty chair to use upstairs with them at night time.. potty training is going to be a challenge but as you know diapering two children is a huge expense so i am looking forward to not having to buy diapers any more =) good luck and let us know how it goes!

I potty trained 4kids at once! Not my own lol but at an in home daycare. Step one throw out the diapers! yes you will be doing a lot of laundry but switching back and forth confuses the children! invest in 2training potty's and use the weekend and every 15-20mins take them to the bathroom and put them on the potty's keep it up until they use it. It will more than likely happen on accident. Be sure to give lots of praise and maybe try candy, be sure to check and show them
how to wipe properly! :D good luck!
