Re: im drained - need more for twins to do

My twins were born at 26 weeks 3 days and month 3 to about 9 was exhausting. I really believe their minds were ahead of their bodies and they just couldn't do what they wanted to do. Exersaucers were good (and still are)...once they could be propped up to sit with a boppy they were happier. I put them in a portacrib facing each other propped sitting while I would cook dinner and they liked that. But mostly, those months were just really really hard. Like you said, they just wanted me to hold them 24/7 and I couldn't do that with four other kids to take care of, etc. I finally broke down and got a babysitter every so often. My Mom also came down for a bit after I broke down on the phone. I would urge you to get some help because this is a rough exhausting time! But you wouldn't change it for the world would you ?
Mama to DD 10, DD 8, DS 7, DS 5, and identical twin almost 1 year old girls born at 26 1/2 weeks and doing super! Thanking God every day for our blessings!!!
