    My babies are now 8 months old. We are still nursing as they totally REFUSE to take a bottle. It is getting hard because I am constantly trying to hold down 4 little hands that want to grab each others face or pull the boob out of sister’s mouth. Not sure how much longer I will be able to nurse them at the same time ;o( That makes me sad…[Read more]

    Hello all – I have a question for you… I am EBF the girls, they are now 5 months old… to any mom’s who have been here before, when did you get AF back?

    (vinessalynn: my twins were born almost 2 months early, Sept 25 and didn’t even begin to TRY nursing until Nov 10th -their due date. They were 4 lbs and 4lbs 6 ozs – crazy similarities!…[Read more]

  • mandarae replied to the topic nursing-twins in the forum nursing-twins 3 years, 4 months ago

    I agree with abcsmommy – BF twins is the only way to go! My girls were born almost 2 months early, so I experienced the pumping, making and washing bottles. I don’t think I would have kept as much of my sanity as I have so far if I wasn’t nursing. I couldn’t imagine all the extra work – I mean, really, we’ve got twins~ Who’s got time for extra…[Read more]

    this might be the wrong place to ask, but my twins are 7 months old and have been EBF until the last couple weeks, they started eating cereal and various baby foods. On a normal day, they share a container of Gerber veggies or fruits in the late afternoon. The last two days their stools were very hard… I don;t think I am feeding them too much,…[Read more]

The girls have been exclusivly on the boobies for 3 weeks now (always received mommy milk, but through feeding tube and bottles as in NICU for 1st month of life)! They are 2 months old and have almost doubled their birth weights! Breanne is up to 8lbs 6ozs, 20 1/4 inches long and…[Read more]

    Angie and Bri – just had to comment. My last period before I got preggo with the girls was Feb 4th too! My due date was Nov 10th, but they were born on Sept 25, 2008 at 33 weeks. They are now 6 1/2 months old, and this month is only my 2nd period… but it was exactly 28 days! Hopefully my cycle will stay regular and if something happens, WHOO HOOO!!!!

    ok ladies – I need some tips or stories on how you did it. I am a SAHM with a 9yr old, 19 month old twins, and an 8 wk old baby. My twins refused bottles and it was SO hard to always be there for them 24/7. I SWORE I would not let that happen with baby boy… well, I started giving him a bottle of expressed milk at 3 wks, almost everyother…[Read more]

    oh – and something going around on my FB right now… I loved it and posted myself!

    I just realized that it has been over a year since the first day of my last period, Feb 4, 2008!!! Period free for over a year!!!! EBF twins for 5 months!!!! WHOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!

  • mandarae replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    I’ve been breastfeeding twins for 6 weeks so far! I have no problem making enough milk for the both of them, but they only actually nurse 2-3 times a day right now and receive the rest in bottles. They were born early and spent a month in the hospital, so they have been eating my milk through bottles (in the beginning they received it in tube…[Read more]

    I have a question for you all. . . I am exclusively bf twins who are now 15 weeks old. On Friday morning, I woke up and found spotting. I thought that AF had returned (and was unhappy because I thought I would get at least 6 months since I am bf two). It was never enough to use a tampon, nor even cover a panty liner. I spotted a little on Sat…[Read more]

    Good morning ladies… looking for alittle advice. My twins are almost 9 months old and completely refuse to take a bottle or a cup. Mommy is getting tired and wishes for them to take an alternative. They do eat baby food at least three times a day, but with the weather finally getting warmer (we live in North Dakota) I am afraid they are not…[Read more]

    Hey all! I just HAD to share this with people who will actually realize how great this is and how hard we had to work to get it! My twin girls will be 7 weeks old tomorrow; they have been home from the hospital only 2 weeks (they were born @ 33 weeks). I have been pumping and bottle feeding as they were unable to eat when born and had to be…[Read more]
