Um, how do I do this? Let me back up. I've successfully bf my first 2 boys til they were 10 months old. And now I"m bfing my twins successfully. Their weight checks show them to be doing very well. But I'm not sure how long I want to do this. They are almost 3 months old and nurse still every 2 - 2.5 hours. I nurse them at the same time which is easier on me. This means they each get a breast. But only one breast. That's probably why they nurse so frequently still. Since...
We are in the same boat you are. Had 2 boys, tried for a third baby and ended up with 3 and 4. Most of our friends had happy reactions for us knowing how I'd always wanted many children. I found that the people who weren't so nice were the ones I suspect were envious. One of the moms had 2 boys -10 and 12 yrs old-and had commented once that it would have been fun to have a girl.

However, since the twins arrived, I wanted a stroller that could accommodate all my kids since they still all like being in the stroller (and frankly, I like the possibility of keeping them all contained at...
I just wanted to say hi and what a relief it is to see other moms talking about twins and other multiples! I don't know another mom IRL with twins and am constantly coming up with questions that no one can help me with. It's nice to see that there probably isn't a question that someone here can't answer! Our story in a nutshell- we have a 4 year old and 2 yr old boys. We decide to try for a girl- but instead got a twins pregnancy with a boy and a girl!! So, I am a...
