Keria - I had that problem too... that they'd fall asleep on me and then it'd be hard to transfer them. I found that with mine, swaddling under their armpits helped cause they were wrapped and couldn't feel movement as well. If yours like to be swaddled, you may try that. DH and I have decided that putting babies to bed is an artform and we're still trying to figure it out. :)
tenszins - I'm recovering fine. I'm just about back to normal. I'm actually quite a bit under my prepregnancy weight, so I'm feeling rather good on that front. My hips, knees, and low back have not recovered yet unfortunately. I'm in a lot of pain most days, but I've been seeing a doctor. Your bump picture is adorable!!! What a cute bump!
rcr - I'm only producing about 2 ounces of breast milk every 2 hours and the babies are eating 2.5 - 4 ounces each at each feeding every 2.5-3.5 hours. Try as I might, I'm just not able to keep up with demand, so we've bitten the bullet and been supplementing. When it's DH's turn to feed, he gives half breastmilk and half formula in the bottles. Thankfully, they are able to nurse despite getting bottles without getting nipple confusion. I attribute that to using a SNS for the first 4 weeks instead of bottles.
lyndi - We have tommy tippees. I like them for the following reasons: They really do have nice soft nipples that do feel similar to the breast. They are easy to put together and the babies do seem to like them. My complaints: My son collapses the nipple in really easily. He does this with all bottles, BUT the tippee ones are supposed to prevent this. They obviously don't. Another complaint, they have a lot of parts to them. They are similar to the dr Brown's bottles if you are familiar with them. It's not a huge deal, but when you have a hungry baby, taking time to put it together can leave mom annoyed... All in all, they aren't bad bottles. I guess it depends on what is important to you. If you want something similar to the breast in feel, these definitely fit the bill. BUT they aren't so spectacular that I'd write home about them either. They don't seem to reduce spit up or gas so much. I haven't found a bottle that does yet. I think I have just about every bottle out there. I have avent, dr brown, dr andrew weilbaby, nuk, evenflo, similac, soothies, tommy tippees, medela and probably a few others that I am forgetting. TBH, my favorites are the 4oz medela with a simulac nipple. (because they are simple and I have a zillion of them)
