I am a mother of 7 week old twin boys. I would love to chat to parents with multiple births so i can learn tricks of the trade:D
Welcome to bubhub!:D
CONGRATULATIONS many times over, I havent got twins but I admire those who do. How wonderful for you. Many blessings to you and your beautiful boys
My twin boys are 4 and a half now. I love the bond they share, they are always with each other, wether that be fighting, or being best of friends.

It is so true my twins are identical boys aged 5 1/2 and they cant be with out each other yet they act as if they cant stand each other..:rolleyes:

Welcome to bubhub & congratulations on you two lil men.
Thanks to everyone for their well wishes, i cant believe how much work it is but i must say that i love every minute of it. They will be 8 weeks tomorrow and i cant believe how quick that has gone.
My main concern has been the sleeping with twin 1. After i have fed him and put him down i then have to feed twin two, this order dosent happen all the time but when it does twin 1 will start crying as soon as i have put him in the cot. Since i am bottle feeding i dont have any free hands to soothe him to sleep so unfortunately he has to cry himself to sleep which can take over 1/2 an hour at times.
Has anyone else had this problem? If so what did you do?:confused:
Congratulations and welcome to bubhub...
I know how much work there is with one bub, so I admire anyone who has twins...
I am sure you will get some great tips and advice from the ladies here...
I bottle fed both my boys at the same time. I would either have them in their rockers, or in their cot (they shared one) and I would hold the bottles for them.
Congratulations on your babies! I have one year old b/g twins. When they were that little I used to feed them one after the other, but once I started feeding them at the same time it was so much easier and a lot less time consuming. I just used to lie them on the feeding pillows.
Sounds like your twin 1 might still have a burp in there when he's crying. If you lie the other twin on a pillow to feed him, you can have the other one on your shoulder to burp.
I know it is so hard those first few months, but believe me it does get a lot easier. And we are reaping the rewards of having twins now because they have a built in best friend to play with!!
I there, I am mum to 9 month old twin boys. They are just wonderful. It has been really really difficult but worth it. They came 7 weeks premmie so I was in hospital for 11 days but they grow up so fast it seems like only yesterday I was pregnant with them.
