Twins run in my family. I have a twin brother but I never really got to know him. He died before he was born. My 4 year olds are the best of friends. As I am typing this the two are fighting because Jaxon wants to play with Alexis and Alexis doesn't want him to because he has applesauce on his face. She hates getting dirty. It ended with her wiping his face. I love seeing them play with each other.

I secretly wanted twins when I was pregnant. Now I am glad that it didn't happen. LOL I am still not sure I am completely done.

Welcome!! Wow, 6 littles under 5 ouch!! Your house probly would make some of ours feel pretty mellow in comparison! I'm jealous of the 2 sets of twins though, I have always thought it would be something really special to have twins! I have to ask out of sheer curiosity... were/are you able to breastfeed the twins, or with having so many little ones in the house is/was bfing not a doable thing??
Last question, at how many weeks gestation were your twins born at vs your singletons?
Thanks and again, welcome!! You are in the right place!!

mommy to twins, welcome!

jessmgt, I don't actually have twins of my own, but my mom had twins and so did one of my sisters. Both of them nursed the twins. It was difficult and tiring at many times, but my sister found it easier than with her single (perhaps because the twins were not her first so she wasn't so nervous). Also, my mom was 3 days late with the twins and delivered both vaginally (1 was breech), and my sister was, maybe, a week early and delivered c-section because one of them was still breech at the ultrasound.

The first set I could breastfeed but I think it was lack of confidence. The younger two are breastfed but I would like to be able to give them each a bottle once a day. Max will take a bottle and Price will not. Price is high strung and Max is very easy going. This makes it so Max does not get held as much so I use his nursing time to force myself to take time for him. Price will not let me put him down at all.

My first was born at 36 weeks. The first set of twins where 34 weeks. James was 38 weeks. The last set of twins where 39 weeks.
