Yay! We made it through the first fortnight with the girls. Breastfeeding is now going much better but I am still having to supplement with some formula. Both babies seem to be doing well and gaining weight so I am happy.
For only two weeks.postpartum with twins I have to say I feel great! My belly is shrinking rapidly and I am actually taking showers! (Mild phobia, long story). I feel better than I did after Sawyer and (knock on wood) I am getting more sleep! Partly because the girls are good and because I have the expertise to “sleep nurse”. As long as they don’t cry together I just sleep nurse all night, alternating back and forth when they cry. When they both cry together I have to get up and feed them, but it’s only about 2-3 times a night. I know once Jeff goes back to work it will not be so great because right now he gets up early with Sawyer so I can sleep later with the girls, but I am keeping my fingers crossed it is not as bad as I think it will be. I’ll let you know next week.
