Weaning 7month prem twins ... Aaargghh!!

Hiya My twins were born at 35 weeks and we started BLW when they were 6 months old, they didn't really start eating until they were 7.5 months old but I tried to be relaxed and it has paid off. They are fantastic eaters and I really wish I'd weaned my 3 year old the same way. I didn't worry too much about 'set' meal times. For a while (and for various reason's) they were having their 'evening' meal at 3.30pm. Meal times do become normal but there isn't any hurry in the early day's. A good high c...

Are Twins always born via C-Section???

Hi Congrats on your PG. I had my twins naturally, it was a very quick delivery and only time for about 10 mins gas and air! I was fortunate enough to have had a quick and straight forward delivery with my first PG, and with that knowledge and both babies being head down I wasn't offered a c-section. That said there wouldn't have been time anyway. Good luck, keep an open mind. Certainly I recovered very quick but obv would have had a c-section if it had been necessary. xxxx

Anyone recommend Fisher price infant and toddler rocker?

It's a nightmare,I should be 7 stone! I'm getting my DS down from the sofa he's just climbed on and wrestling the table lamp from him,then darting across the room to stop DD eating the paper/baby wipes/her big sister! Then Ds has wedged himself somewhere,you get the picture! All good fun and your girls are going to love being mobile xxxx

Anyone recommend Fisher price infant and toddler rocker?

Hi again It's difficult to know what to buy sometimes (esp when you need 2 of everything!),it does sound like they'll be happy enough sitting on their own soon and moving about etc. I'm trying not to buy too much now and thinking about how much use I'll get out of things! xxx

Anyone recommend Fisher price infant and toddler rocker?

Hiya Kirstin I think I know the one's you mean,there is no way any of my 3 Lo's would have sat still at the age you girls are.They all have ant's in their pants I think.The only time they sit still is in their highchair but as soon as all their food is gone they want out! Saying that all babies are different and my friends twins would probably have used the seats. What did you want to use them for,eg so they could watch you in the kitchen etc? I'm just trying to think if there are any alternativ...

Toy recommendations for 7 month old?

My twinnies have shown no interest in the V-tech ball! They love the V-tech first steps walker though. Popular toys in my house are stacking cups,the Tomy hide and squeak eggs that Jensqui mentioned,also fabric tunnels to crawl through and a paddling pool filled with plastic balls. Remote controls are popular,baby wipes are very popular (I leave the room and my twinnies have taken them all out of the packet and are madly trying to cram them in their mouth before I come back in the room,that can'...

Local Twins/Multiples Groups - how are yours run?

Hiya My twins group meets every 4 weeks at the the sure start centre (so it's free),it's a small room that's part of the library so there is a few parking spaces,but parking is not generally an issue.It's on a monday 1.30-3pm There are no refreshments,and I suppose it's 'run' by a sure start worker,there was one there but she didn't introduce herself and just sat there watching.I guess if you had any general questions she would have helped and I think they have Bf support on occasions. There was...

Weaning- Stuck in a rut!!

Hiya Jasper I make up a batch of chicken balls/meat balls and freeze them. (I HATE cooking tbh so like things I can freeze in bulk!),with the pizzza. I make up a batch of dough and freeze in portions and also make up the sauce and freeze that in weaning pots or ice cube trays. Then just get it out of the feezer when I need it. They've had ham,cheese and tuna pizza so far. I'm always looking out for new ideas so will come back to this thread. I puree weaned my eldest DD and they all end up eating...

How long did you stay in hospital?

Hiya I didn't have a C-section but I was in for 10 days( ) as my twinnies were small and weren't put on weight quick enough.It was tough staying in that long,but after 10 days of hospital food I was back to my pre-preg weight good luck xxxx

Hiya My twinnies have home made pizza,fish fingers,yorkshire puddings,eggy bread,cheese on toast,crumpets,tea cakes,fruit toast.They love sandwiches the best - dairylea,ham,egg,tuna etc. I also make meatballs and chicken balls and toad in the hole.They like blueberries,banana,strawberries and mango etc My eldest DD used to like homemade fishcakes,fish pie,bolognese,cauliflower cheese.She even had mild curry before she decided she didn't want to eat at all ( ),but that's a whole other thread. I l...

Waking baby for feeds

Hi We had to wake our twins every 3 hours to feed as they were small and premature but I think we probably stopped doing that around the same age your twins are.Like the others say if they are gaining weight well and are healthy they will let you know when they are hungry. xxx

Only 17lbs5oz at 14mths and losing weight

Hiya Ros I replied on your other thread,but my DD was 16lb,12oz at 11 months but down to 15lb,15oz at 14 months.I wish I could offer more advice.My DD has just never had a big appetite,she did obv start to gain weight again but is still really small/skinny. My DD did have a lot of energy tho,which is why although we were concerned there didn't seem anything obviously wrong. This must be so hard for you,I do hope she's just having a little blip.It's so easy to compare 2 babies when you have twins...

won't eat

Aww Ros, I really feel for you.I know how hard this is as we've had eating issues with DD1 on and off now for ages. She lost weight around 14 months (she weighed just under 16lb,but was nearer 17lb at 11 months),it's so hard when you can visibly see them shrinking. I'm trying to think what I wish I had done differently............I think I would have just offered her main meal that I wanted her to eat with some finger foods that I know she probably would eat.I wouldn't have got too hung up on wh...

A question for all twin mums considering trying again

Ros( ),go for it I say.It's really really hard work having 3 Lo's (I'm nearly 36 BTW),but I like the fact that they are pretty close in age.My step children (2yr age gap)are soooooooooo close and so easy to take out when growing up,in to the same things etc. The thought of getting all the sleep less nights/nappies/bottles out the way also appeals! You'll be so chuffed if the Tx works that everything else will fall into place. Lots of luck to you xxxxx

A question for all twin mums considering trying again

Aww Ros How about one of those back carriers for one of the twinnies ? (I personally wouldn't be strong enough,but I am a light weight!),I don't know how far you could walk with one of those on? I'm sure there are solutions,could you do long doggy walks when someone else could watch the Lo's? Have you got time/age on your side to delay TX? I'd probably just go for and worry about the practical issues later.Saying that tho I am the world's biggest worrier so I'm not sure what I'd do!! xxxxx

A question for all twin mums considering trying again

Hiya Ros I'm not quite in the same position as I had a single baby first(age 2.5 when the twins were born) and then my twins! So prob not much help (!)but my DD1 gave up her buggy just after she turned 2,she was and is a good walker and likes walking.I'd say some toddlers may use the buggy up to 3 years.I suppose if you are going on long walks though the twinnies may not be quite so keen to walk all the way! You could get a buggy board that fixes on the back of the buggy,and they could maybe tak...
