Twin Life

To say twins was a surprise is an understatement, but we welcomed it with open arms!

I had a pretty uneventful pregnancy and delivered via c-section at 36 weeks 4 days. The boys were transverse and breech so there was no way a vaginal delivery was happening. My OB was leaving for out of town and since the week before I had been contracting pretty regularly and in pain (although not on official bed-rest, I did put myself on it somewhat to keep them in there!) we decided to go for it.

Babies came out perfectly healthy and were only admitted into the NICU 4 days later and had pretty short stays all things considered. They are perfectly healthy!

Here is an easy place to find any twin information you might be looking for! Of course, you can always use the search box or tags to find out anything else and I'm always available via email if you have questions!

Resources


Megan at the bohomama. Not only is she a IRL friend, she wrote an amazing ebook about breastfeeding twins and how to keep your supply up with real food!

Pam from It's Time for More Coffee is a tremendous resource for all things breastfeeding and also one of the best cheerleaders a Twin Mom could have!

Baby Making is one of my favorite twin blogs, Becky is just super cool.


Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins: A Step-by-Step Program for Sleep-Training Your Multiples- This is what we used for all three of our boys to help us understand sleep cycles. We also used it to sleep train the boys after they had finished breastfeeding and were ready to learn to fall asleep alone (between 6-8 months)



Mothering Multiples: Breastfeeding and Caring for Twins or More!  - this book was a lifesaver when breastfeeding especially. One of the best books out there.
