When my twins were born, my DH was off for a couple of weeks, but after that, it was just me, my twins and my 4 year old daughter.
-I just went with the flow. I didn't stress out about a "schedule" although I did try to do things at the same time, if I could
-Nothing got done for a few months.
-I just found what worked for my babies, depending on them.
After a few months, things got better. Still difficult, but we managed.
I have a question for mothers of twins. How many you did not hire help and did alone? My husband is only taking 2 weeks and after that I will on my own. I have no family in the area. If you did alone how did you survive and any tips are welcome as far scheduling, feeding ,sleeping?
