Congratulations mama and way to go.
How do I attachment parent the both of them AND my 3 year old. Need tips, suggestions anything. Nursing's going well but I feel like that's all I do.
I have lots of help right now but next week I will be on my own and am pretty nervous about that.
Well, I've been there. And right now while you have lots of help? REST. REST. REST.
Ask your 'lots of help' to make & freeze meals...as many meals as they are willing and your budget will allow for groceries. THIS WILL HELP YOU TREMENDOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ask them to help you get your house in shape for next week. BUt YOU NEED TO REST, really.
I don't think I got online for the first three months. I don't remember. I remember nursing the twins, playing with the 4 yo and trying to keep the 18 mo from going nuts. BUt I had no help and meals were pathetic. SO if your help can hook you up with meals, lots of them, in your freezer than that would be so helpful and so awesome.
My advice is to just nurse the babies and rest with the 3 yo at home. Read stories, colour in bed while you nurse or rest, watch TV (we were a no tv family until the twins came), read more stories, eat, and rest some more.
And trust your gut. DO what you can and give yourself the freedom to not do what you can't. ALl your children really want from you is your heart anyway, kwim?
: that your family and freiends make and freeze meals for you.
Woo hoo. I am soooooooooooooooo excited for you.
Tell us more details when you are up for it.
