What was your experience/ routine like with your twins/multiples?
Not ideal, but I remember a lot of the first few weeks with my little ones was spent on our couch. I had a twin breastfeeding pillow (get one! I found I needed two, one for my house, one for my mom's) and my little guys would sleep next to me on the pillow and feed or sleep.
Wraps are also good. I never pulled off the Moby double wrap, but have friends who swore by it. I would occasionally do a double ergo (one on front and the other on back) when they were bigger. That was fun.
Good luck, sounds like you're doing a great job!
i did (and still do) a lot of baby wearing. I held one baby while the other was in the swing. We cosleep, so I often sleep without a shirt on for easier skin to skin. My twins are seven months old (oh crap, how did that happen!). I often say I dont remember the first three months of their life at all. I'm glad we took a lot of photos. They still seem attached to me, though. Smooch them every chance you get, hold them as often as you can, and be gentle with yourself. You're already the best mom they have ever known. The newborn stage was really like, survival at any cost for me.
I strongly recommend that relieve yourself of any expectations of what you "should" do until after the three month hurdle is past. For now, rest, recover, nurse, rest, eat, sleep.
Hold them when you can, enjoy watching them. It's ok. You don't need to be doing "more".
I have a twin feeding pillow... And have made a comfy spot on the couch. I have relaxed more about doing anything but feed them. It's such hard work!
