With my girls, I started them early. Whenever one woke up, I would wake the other. When one nursed, I nursed the other. We didn't ever have a set "schedule," but they were pretty much always synced. Every now and then one would start to drift away from the other a little, but as long as I stayed consistent with doing everything together they would stay on the same timeline.

Thanks ladies, I appreciate your input! All the other mothers in my Mothers of Multiples club think I'm nuts for wanting to take on homeschooling with twins, but then again none of them have any experience with homeschooling, LOL!

I made them in separate...

I've seen a few episodes, and wasn't impressed at all. I couldn't do that to my kids, putting them on display like that. When they do the "interview" sessions, Jon always looks like he'd rather be somewhere else.

If you're referring to what I think you're referring to, yes, it's usually in the back of the hand, where your IV would be. Where I am, they call it a saline lock. The reason is this: in setting this up, an IV catheter is inserted into your vein, and the lock is "plugged" into it instead of the IV tubing. That...

I do NOT want an epidural for a thousand reasons but I'm having a hard time coming to terms with being completely knocked...
