How to Prepare for Twins

How to Prepare for Twins

Having twins never once crossed my mind. Okay, well I had a small moment of being envious when an acquaintance was pregnant with twins when Zadey was little. But, I never once thought that I would be the mother of twins. Now, with almost 2 year old twins in the house, it is much more […]

Babywearing: The Dos, Donts, How and Why

Babywearing: Dos, Donts, How, & Why

It seems the older the boys get, the more interested I become in babywearing. When Zadey was a baby, eight years ago, we bought the only baby carrier we knew about then and used it all the time. It wasn’t something that I studied or learned about. I didn’t feel like I had to, to […]

Baby Led Weaning with Twins

All during my pregnancy there were two things I knew, for sure: 1) I was going to hold my baby (babies) more than I did Zadey. Every day I miss holding my baby Zadey, and I didn’t want to have any regrets with my boys. 2) They would not be picky eaters like their big […]

My boys have had serious acid reflux since they came home from the hospital. It something they have been medicated for (which I hate). In January I had a conversation with their doctor about alternative methods for easing the symptoms of the reflux. We decided on food. So, they began to eat. It worked. We […]

Today was my appointment with a lactation consultant. I went armed with my breast pump, a lot of questions, and very very hopeful to the wealth of information I was hoping to discover to get my boys nursing. After the initial explanation about my previous problems breastfeeding, I brought her current. She seemed hopeful but […]

I previously blogged about my problems breastfeeding when the boys were born. For their first 3 or so months, I convinced myself that I did everything I could to nurse my boys. But then I began to wonder, and research. Then I evaluated the situation and I asked myself again… did I really do everything […]
