April 2017 Update

I haven't figured out this twin thing yet. Fortunately God is easing me into it. Baby B isn't home yet. He still has some time in the hospital. Not quite sure how long. And no one can tell me.   We are thoroughly enjoying our time with Baby A. Waking up in the middle of the night for only one baby, preparing only a few bottles a day, changing only a dozen diapers… but only one baby to snuggle too…

We are still spending a lot of time at the hospital with Baby B. It's a little more difficult since the hospital changed though. I love my son and he is work every moment, but a one hour visit with him takes 4 hours out of the day.  By the time I get a baby, a toddler, and 3 teenagers in the truck, get to the hospital (and find the right parking garage), get through valet parking (a 12 passenger bus doesn't fit in the garage), get through all the nurses you have to check in with, scrub in, and find where my baby is (he was moved a few times) it takes anywhere from 60-90 minutes. Even once we started talking the train it only shaved 10 minutes or so off that time. I cherish every moment in that hospital room because I know that once he comes home I won't have as much devoted, uninterrupted baby snuggle time.

Until he comes home I spend a lot of time looking at different twin websites. When I have a conversation with another mom they often bring up questions I hadn't thought of.

  • How are you going to wear two babies? (I LOVE baby wearing!)
  • How are you going to feed two babies?
  • How are you going to make it through the night?

Then there are my random sleep deprived thoughts;

  • Does the diaper bag need to be different?
  • What is the best double stroller?
  • What milestones is Baby A missing?
  • What is cradle cap? (Both Baby A and B)
  • What can I do for hypertonicity? (Baby Moses and Baby B are both hypertonic)
  • How do I keep Baby Moses from feeling left out?

Most of what I looked up was good for a first time mom.  The only good thing I found was a few YouTube videos on tandem baby wearing.  I'm pretty excited at that one!
