Won't drink any liquid other than milk

Hi Sushe Mine is also not drinking anything other than milk. I haven't tried juice yet, they only started eating at 6 months but they don't like water even if I put a little brown suger in and also no rooibos tea for them. Maybe you must just keep on trying, I think it is all new to him and need to get use to the taste!

How much food and how to increase

Thanks Ladies, I will try to get the goods over here. I know they sell it here will just go and look for it!! We are starting off with 2 meals a day only veggies (they vomit from the rice cereal) so we will see how it goes!! Only after a month we will increase to 3 meals, clinic sister worried about them not picking up weight!

How much food and how to increase

My twins are 6 months old tomorrow and we started with food (purity fruit). Now how fast do you increase the amount of food? When do you add more than one type per feeding? When do you fo over to 3 meals a day? I know it all depends on your child and how hungry they are but month wise eg must they be on 3 meals per day by 8 months or 9 months. I am a bit clueless with this!

I get so angry at people and stopping us touching my girls with their dirty hands or open the blanket to see - can't they just leave me alone. I can handle all the comments but are they boys or girls - but they have pink blankets, dressed in pink - everything is pink then I just want to tell the person can't you see all is pink so I will imagine it is girls!!!!!!!! Double trouble or how do you handle two at a time - I think people think you need a nanny for each child and nannies while they slee...

The parents on their have 7 children, 4 of them are autistic and she is pregnant with nr8 and they told her to not vacc the child because of the high risk o...

I have pack in their bags 2 pack of 24 newborn nappies that will last about 4-5 days then I can just take extra every day when I go visit them.

Triple Test

Hi Jess We didn't go for the test and I am expecting twins. Our dicission was on the fact that what if the babies are downs, we will keep them so either way the test results go we will keep them and the Lord gave this little miracles to us and nothing will go wrong with them and they will be born 100% and healthy. I didn't see the reason why to pay so much money for nothing. We are rather going to use that for a private 4d scan. I also agree with Jodie, sometimes the test can be wrong and then y...
