19 weeks with twins, need advice preparing!
Hi, I am expecting my first set of twins(fraternal) and my husband and I are very excited yet a bit nervous. I am a mother of two girls, ages 1 and 2 and birth both vaginally. I really desire to do th same with the twins yet right now I want to prepare my home, my family, as well as myself as much as possible for their arrival in. A part from reading numerous articles,. I will greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions....thank you and God bless you :-)

Congratulations on your twins! I am currently 33 weeks with my second set of twins. I would say one of the biggest things that helped in the beginning was getting them on a schedule. You also do not need two of everything. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I love the advice from the mom getting ready for her second set of twins. A schedule is super helpful and make the adjustment smoother for everyone involved.

 

Congratulations!

I kept a clip board and wrote down times to keep track of feeding schedule as well as any medications that were needed... used wubbynubs from babies r us that helped battle getting up everytime the binky fell out of their mouth...... used bottles and formula so at night took 6 bottles in the room with pre measured water in each and pre measured formula to help make night time feedings easier..
