We're expecting twins in November, #3 and #4 for us. We think we will need some nighttime help, and are considering hiring a night nurse for a few weeks.
I'm looking for a recommendation for someone wonderful who is:
1. Experienced with twins (or multiples)
2. Familiar with INTACT CARE (not sure if we have any boys in here, but we have two other boys, so reasonably likely)
3. Pro-breastfeeding, and who will help me figure out how the heck to do two at once (I am a HUGE nurser, and expect to be successful, but recognize that this may require learning for me and the babies, too ... and need support in place to keep my spirits up!)
We have two older sons, so we have some idea what we're doing with babies, just not two at once Also, we welcome opinions, but expect that our wishes will be followed in the case that we have different ideas (for example: my DH is immovable on disposable diapers...he's not budging on gDiapers or cloth, period).
Lastly, most likely my parents will be around after the twins are born, and, although they are mostly wonderful, they can also be a challenge at times ... the right person will be able to tolerate (or even love) them, too.
Anyone know anyone? Anyone have any experience with having twins and using a night nurse/nanny? For example, how long might we need someone? etc.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts, recommendations, observations ...
