Hello everyone =) We are expecting twins in a couple months, on top of having a 5 yr old and 1.5 year old... We werent expecting to have a ny more just yet, but here we are, and totally unprepared. I stay at home with the kids while my husband tries to find work, and I really have no idea how we are going to take care of 2 new babies. We dont have any cloth diapers that will fit newborns, and I am getting more and more stressed as my due date gets closer. Does anyone have any tips for raising newborn twins with 2 kids at home? How do you diaper them with no steady income and take care of them with you have 2 other children who constantly need something as well? I dont have any family to help me out, or friends with kids, and without a perminant housing address cant get support from my local welfare office (tried and was denied).... anyway, sorry to unburden myself like this, I just wish I was one of those moms who could enjoy pregnancy and motherhood instead of always having to stress about it...
Hi and Welcome to Mothering!!
I don't have any answers for you but I want to point you to our Parenting Multiples forum. The ladies in there are super knowledgeable and will have great info for you. :) You should join a Due Date Club as well!
I hope you get some good feedback. :)

If you are on facebook, check to see if there is a local or regional free swap page or online yardsale in your area. Those are very helpful for finding cheap baby items like cloth diapers. There are other ways to get what you need but that is one I rely on. Good luck!

Thanks =) I dont use facebook, but I will still look for a local or regional freeswap...
Im still really struggling here, Im 36 weeks pregnant, and am told the twins could come as early as next week, which is really freaking me out. I have nowhere for them to sleep, my husband still has not gotten any work, and I just want to cry all the time. I have no energy for my kids and I feel that it is so unfair to them.
