Feeding Twins



In the video I did not say what bottles I like to use. But I like the Playtex Ventaire Bottles

Sleeping through the night????

The babies are just a little over two months. Today they are exactly 9 weeks. I believe my babies are sleeping through the night. Well at least they did for the past 2 days. So I wont jump for joy just yet.

Its funny. I wake up around 2 because I know its time for a feeding but I hear no cries. My husband will wake up around 3 asking if they are up. Still no cries. We just lay there thinking why sleep they will be up shortly. Well we both doze off. Next thing you know it is 6 am and we are hearing the first signs of a cry. Well at least the first loud cries. So yesterday they slept till 6ish and today 7ish. They go to bed around 10:30 each night. So I am hoping that this pattern continues.

I just recently purchased a mobile for their crib. I did not have one initially because I didn't really realize the function of a mobile. I thought it was just something cute to have on the crib. Well I noticed how much they both enjoy the mobile on their swing so I got one for the bed. I purchased Fisher Price - Smart Response Musical Mobile. I need to add this to my Top Ten list! But this mobile is nice. I turn it on when I put them down at night and it plays for a few minutes and then shuts off. Then if one of them cries it turns back on. So I don't know if the babies are waking at night and the mobile helps soothes them back to sleep. I don't know why they are sleeping at night but I tell you this...Mommy and Daddy are loving the extra sleep!

Top Ten

Well I decided to go back to making videos. For almost a year I had been sharing my experience on Youtube and I actually missed making my videos. So I will do them from time to time. Just not as much as before.

I was insipired to do this video from reading Dakotapam's blog. She made a list of items that was essential for her and her twins. So I did the same. I hope you enjoy the video

Six Weeks

Well what can I say for the first six weeks of motherhood? First and foremost...I love it. I love being the mother to Taylor and Bryon. Everyday it gets easier and better for me.

Both Taylor and Bryon are doing well. At the last doctor appointment Bryon weight 8 lbs 2 oz and Taylor was 8 lbs and 1 oz. Bryon is 23 inches and she is 22 inches. So both babies are doing well.

I am breastfeeding both babies. There are times I want to give up but I realize how important breast milk is for my babies. I do have to supplement with formula. Initially I was not happy about that but I realized for my babies to thrive they needed the formula. I just was not producing enough milk.

I am still off work until April 12. I don't know how I will go back to work. I know now I don't want to leave my babies. But I know they will be in good hands. Luckily for me and my DH we have family who will provide daycare for our babies. I feel comfortable knowing that my aunt will care for our children while we are at work. I feel so blessed to have family support. With out the family support we would be lost.

I will include a few pictures of the babies so you can see how well they are doing.
