Absolutely beautiful @RAH10. Congratulations!
Musicalgal- I have been checking here all day everyday looking for an update! I really hope everything is going well for you and your babies!
Any word on MusicGal?
The babies are going great, we are at 4 hourly feeds, which is fantastic through the night.
Feeding them is going okay, our little boy was a horrible latched from the start and he lost heaps of weight right at the beginning so I started pumping and topping up with S26.
Now we do this for both babies just to keep them in sync, they get a bottle with expressed BM then the next feed they get S26, if we don't keep them together with feeds we would be up all night.
So I pump every few hours and get from 110ml to 220ml each go. I have found doing it this way has really taken the stress out of feeding because I know they are getting all the food they need for that feed.
Meet Max 2.7kg and Lily 2.4kg Arrived Wed 6 April. We made it to our scheduled c sec at 37weeks+1. Both bubs are strong and didn't need NICU. So thankful for that.
We're home after a 4 night, 5 day stay in hospital and on the feeding treadmill! Need to get our feeding in sync so we can stay sane. Trying to do the same as rah but on 3 hrly schedule bf at first then top up with ebm or formula. It's all a learning game!
First pic is on the Twin z pillow which is great for bf in bed too btw! Yeah $200 from the US but worth it. I'm also using the My Brest Friend twin bf pillow. Got it 2nd hand from my local MBA. $30. Bargain! In great condition. Took it to hospital.
Rah your photos are gorgeous!

Congratulations @MusicalGal! They are absolutely beautiful. I love the names too! It sounds like you are all doing brilliantly
Afm, 20 week scan done and dusted. Everything was good. We found out we are most likely having a boy and a girl! I think it is still sinking in to be honest. I'm thrilled though - mainly that they are ok, but also that there is one of each!
Congrats MusicalGal! Gorgeous babies!!
Congratulations musicgal, absolutely gorgeous. Hope you're recovering well too.
