What sweet boys! I have triplets so we had some NICU time, too, and seeing your kangaroo pictures really took me back.
And WOW, you were rocking those heels on Mother's Day!
Welcome, and thanks for sharing the pictures!
that is how it always was for me, too - getting "lucky" with 3 sick babies that I was only desperately needed by one at a time.
I'm glad they're feeling better, and I hope you all get a little extra rest soon!
Do you have any specific questions regarding issues you are experiencing or are you looking for more general advice?
I don't have any particular tricks to share, but I do have triplets (18 months old now) so I wanted to respond. We just followed their lead on sleep and always had a routine, but not really a schedule. I did feed all of them when the first one woke up at night, but I always fed one at a time so the third one was waking up by the time the first two...
My triplets were born the same day as your twins.
I had severe supply issues from the very beginning so I know my feelings are biased by that. For the last 2 months I pumped, I almost never got more than a half ounce per session so 3 ounces sounds like heaven to me! I was only getting about 3 ounces total per day. I feel that even the little breastmilk they were getting at that point was beneficial and I refuse to believe anyone who says otherwise.

I am exactly the same! We have a definite routine but the kids (I have 16-month-old triplets) dictate it. ...

Me too, that's why I said the reason for possibly listening to him shouldn't be that, and why I said he was misguided in saying it. ...

Then isn't it possible that the OP's OB is one of these? He has made some conservative suggestions (and many would argue it would be irresponsible of him not to, since there is a very real chance of uterine rupture leading to one or more babies dying, and patients deserve to be informed of all of the...
