I had a great pregnancy, too. I did have pre-eclampsia at the very end, but everything else was good... even considering the groin pain and carpal tunnel. I gained 55lbs on a 5'4" frame and was all...

I read this post a while back and it stuck with me. Then at the library the other day, a book about vitamin B12 deficiency caught my eye. Apparently, in babies B12 deficiency can often result in...

I have the same problem, hergrace! One of the boys is so single-minded, no matter what he's doing.

I really would like to help them learn to work things out together, so perhaps talking it...

We did a two-day (16 hours) drive from Arizona to Idaho when I was about 24 weeks along. It was fine, except my back got sore and my legs got swollen. I'd recommend breaking a drive like that into...

We're running up against an issue that isn't unique to multiples, but I think the way you'd deal with it would be different if it were happening between children of different ages. Our boys are...

I didn't have to try and nurse them on my own until they were a bit older, but swaddling definitely helped. We didn't swaddle them much, but I felt so much more comfortable maneuvering two wiggly,...

My boys are eight months old now and have never taken a bottle (we tried with breast milk, but they wouldn't take one). It was hard at first because it seemed like I was always nursing, but things...

We didn't find out. We definitely questioned whether we should since there were two in there, and somehow it seemed different than there just being one baby. Someone let it slip along the way that...

I also used/liked the EZ2Nurse pillow, but I always needed help using it. At this point, I would wait on the pump. If you plan on staying home with the babies and nursing goes well, you won't need a...

We co-sleep with our 17 and 20-pound 6-month-olds and a 16 pound cat in a queen-size bed with a crib side-car. Let me tell you, it's tight!
