I'm actually in the process of slowly weaning the boys to bottles, we've had a rough ride breastfeeding! I do feed them together whenever they'll let me though, it saves so much time. Are you breastfeeding or bottle feeding?
I don't have much help during the day (my parents are in NZ and DH's live in South America), but I'm lucky in that the boys are pretty cruisy and my husband is amazing when he is home, which helps a heap. I've also got a cleaner! (I'm all about outsourcing, haha).
I found 12 weeks a big turning point for us, they became so much more interactive and their personalities are really starting to come out. I'm loving being a twin mum, I feel very lucky! Although the first 6-10 weeks we were definitely in survival mode!
How are you doing? It's pretty full on, isn't it.
I think we're going ok. I'm thankful my partner is such a hands on dad... It really makes all the difference! I'm looking forward to seeing the babies reach their milestones. At the moment they are just starting to smile ... But even the small amount of smiles we get make all the **** times worth it. Just out of interest what are you dressing the babies in at night? We live on the boarder of nsw and Qld and it's so hot here at night I'm struggling to find the right amount of clothing for them. They love their sleeping bags/being swaddled but they sweat so much in them 😩
I'm in Melbourne, so it's a bit cooler here, but on hot nights they are in nappies, singlet suits and the summer lite love to swaddle suits (the ones where their hands are up). If your bubbas like being wrapped I think you can get mesh wrap suits that are super light but keep them contained? They're called aircocoon by Ergo - if we lived somewhere super hot I'd definitely get them.
