Well, this is really tough. I didn't imagine how tough it would be when I was pregnant to raise twins. I just wanted them here. Now that they are here, I am feeling overwhelmed and wishing they were still inside! My boys were born at 35.5 weeks gestation. They spent 6 days in the NICU and then one went back to the PICU for three days due to breathing problems. They are now both home, diagnosed with acid reflux and taking Zantac three times a day. They are doing really well, but it is tough to handle...especially nights. I feel like it is a lost cause to even sleep. They are up every three hours to eat, and it takes an hour and a half to feed them, so I am sleeping about an hour at a time. Talk about sleep deprivation. They are now four weeks old. When will it get better? I have a three year old too. Even though I know he loves his brothers, he is feeling resentful about all the time they take up. He acts out, which is so tough, too. Especially when you are feeding a baby and the three year old is throwing stuff or taking the other baby's nuk. How does everyone do it? Any tips? What about sleeping longer? Anyway to stretch out feedings a little bit? Even to four hours would be great! I don't know. Just need some support, I guess. And maybe another pair of hands!
