TOP 5 Tips for Surviving Your First Few weeks with Twins!

Posted by | January 25, 2016 | Blog | No Comments

Our friends over at Twin Love Concierge have shared with us some helpful tips and tools for new mommies to make your first few weeks a success!  If you haven’t had a chance to check out Twin Love, check out the partners page on our website!

  1. BE PREPARED BY 28 WEEKS, 30 MAX –That means having everything washed, all essential baby gear purchased, pediatrician selected, sleeping arrangements figured out and if you are having help; start dates in place. A 28-30 week deadline is especially important because so many twin moms are placed on bed rest or deliver early and by having everything prepared you will only have to focus on yourself and the babies once they arrive.
  1. MEALS – Have meals prepared for at least two weeks if possible. During those first few busy weeks home, one of the first things to go for mom and dad is a proper meal, however it is crucial that you have healthy meals to eat, especially for nursing moms.   A really helpful too is the meal train – www.mealtrain.com Meal Train is a way for people to sign up to bring you meals. People add their names to a calendar so there is no overlapping, you can order delivery, which is great for family and friends who live far away but want to help, and you can be very specific about food allergies or drop off instructions. If you feel uncomfortable asking people to sign up have a friend do if for you!
  1. LIMIT VISITORS – It is so wonderful to see the excitement of people in your lives when you tell them you are expecting twins.   However, your first few days home might feel overwhelming. It is absolutely appropriate to limit the number of people who visit at the hospital or at home. It takes energy to have people in your home and you just might not feel up to it in the beginning. If you are fortunate to have someone stay with you the first few weeks, moms, make sure if it someone with whom you feel 100% comfortable. You may be going through a lot both emotionally and physically and you don’t want to have to leave the room every time you need to feed the babies or ask a question about your body.
  1. SAME SCHEDULE– It is crucial that you get the babies on the same schedule. Always feed them and put them down for naps at the same time. If you are breastfeeding, work with the lactation consultant at the hospital after you deliver to help you tandem feed. Even if you have days where you fall off the same feeding schedule, work to get them back on. So if one baby wakes to eat then wake their twin to eat too. Having them on the same schedule will be a lifesaver a few months down the road. It will make you day to day so much easier and allow some YOU time when they nap.
  1. ASK FOR HELP – Taking care of a newborn is challenging, taking care of newborn twins makes you a super mama! If you have the opportunity, ask for and get help. Whether that be a nanny, a night nurse, a friend or family member who is offering, an extra set of hands is only a positive when caring for twins.   Join support groups for multiples, there are so many great ones on Facebook and throughout your local area. Reaching out to other parents of multiples, who are going through the same thing as you, is so beneficial and often a great comfort. And take a pre-natal expecting multiples class, they are always a great way to meet other parent expecting twins and learn some of the essentials of preparing for life with twins.
  1. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF – Having twins is truly exciting yet can feel overwhelming at times. Take it one day at a time. The days may seem long and hard in the beginning but it really does go by fast and get easier!   And don’t compare yourself to parents of singletons. Their parenting experience is in no way similar to having twins. They may be able to have a more flexible schedule or you may see Instagram images of them out to lunch with their baby, something that you haven’t been able to do yet. But what you will have are images of your babies holding hands, engaging in twin talk, both snuggling up against you and at some point playing together giving you a lot more free time than your friends with one baby.   Parents feel pressure from so many outside forces; don’t add to that by putting pressure on yourself. Enjoy this special experience of being a parent to twins because it truly is magical.
