    Screaming won't kill them. Multiples learn to wait, they have to.

    I had a side to side swing that I used to put the first to finish their feed in. Generally that 1 was burped & asleep by the time the next was done so 1st went to bed & 2nd went in the swing, than I had 2 free hands to deal with the 3rd.
    It was a system that worked for me for months.

    Once you find a system that works for you, everything just falls into place.

    Sorry I don't get in here so much these days - I am often on my mobile and read rather than type!

    Congrats on the new twin mummies - so many now

    ali - I had an inflatable feeding pillow for my 2, was GREAT when they were tiny as my older 2 kids could sit either side of me and we'd read while bubs were feeding. With that, i'd pop them both over my shoulder and burp at the same time while sitting on the lounge. Then we also had a swing which made things ALOT easier. One bigger swing, one take-along swing and a rocker so there was always an option of one of them didn't like what they were in there was a spare seat! LOL

    I would also wear DS2 ALOT, he was the more unsettled one so if DD2 woke while I was settling him, I could still pick her up with my 2 free hands while he was snug (and on the boob sometimes) in the hug-a-bub or sling. The hug-a-bub and moby wrap also have a way that you can wear both at the same time. it doesn't really free your hands up to actually do anything else as they are then so big out infront of you, but easier to pat both bums, rock and move about to settle them. Once bigger, DD2 would often be in the ergo on my back while I did dinner as she dropped to one sleep sooner and was exhausted by dinnertime.

    I rarely expressed, but you make more milk if you express from about 3am in the morning, not terribly helpful if you need to sleep though! For some reason the chemicals released during night feeds give stronger signals to your body about replacing the milk. Morning milk will almost always be more watery and not as filling, so you are better off to feed this milk to babies in the morning, and what you express in the evening is usually a smaller volume, but higher in fat/less watery. It can also have more 'sleep' style hormones in it to encourage bubs to sleep longer.

    Hi Ladies It has been a very long time since I have been in here. I and J are almost 15 months now. I have a question with you ladies whose multiples are older...Did tey go through a bullying or fighting stage? J seems to always bully his sister, and is new trick is biting. He bites her when she has something he wants. I don't know how to stop this. It is so upsetting to see it happen. Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

    YES!!!
    All started when they were about 10 months old when T & A realised they could get away from him & he couldnt from them. Just gotten worse ever since, now bite, push, shove & everything in between.

    Biting stopped when T bit me & realised how much it hurt me.

    A bunch of our amazing multiples birthdays are coming up. We have a bit of a cluster in April-May I think.

    I cannot believe I almost have 2 year olds.

    I started with a standard cheapy from target. Than moved to a overnight bag than to a medium sized billabong backpack. Wish I'd gotten the backpack first.

    Now the kids are 2, I don't carry all the much. When they were babies I had more than you needed for a weekend away, especially when thy started solids.

    I fit everything into my il tutto chiara bag. I bought an extra bottle bag. The twins are now on solids and it is a tight fit but you can fit it. Bag is on the pricey side tho...

    Good Luck!
