How to take care of Twins?

Having twins can be one of the most exciting times in one`s life. It can also be one of the most demanding too. While twins bring special joys, caring for twins is a big job. When you take the twins home from the hospital, mentally prepare yourself that it is going to be hard. You will need to make a list of priorities.

The first few months after the babies arrive the task that faces a mother of twin babies may seem immense. From nappy-changes to breast-feeding, soothing the babies to helping them to sleep, each routine may seem twice as challenging. Having someone to help with a baby in the beginning may be a help, but with two babies to take care of, it becomes a necessity. You should try an accept help that is offered. Though this may be hard, it can make a big difference. Talk with your partner about how the duties of caring for the babies can be shared. Having both parents involved in childcare would be good for both the parents and the children.

It will be a long time before you get a full night?s sleep, so it is best that you do not miss out on any chance to rest during the day. Expect to feel tired and have some negative feelings from time to time. Most parents of twins have moments when they feel they aren?t up to the job of caring for them. These feelings do not last for a long time. It is best to give each twin time alone with you as they need to know that they are important as individuals and not just as twins. Mothers often find that it is easier to breastfeed than bottle-feed twins. Mothers who are worried that they will not produce enough milk should ensure that they drink enough fluids and eat a proper diet. As long as the doctor feels that the babies? weight gain is adequate, there is no reason to worry.
