No one knows how tough it is to be a mom of multiples(like other M.O.M's) It sux, its terrible, its hard, its filled with guilt and resentment but sometimes when my boys smile or giggle it gets a lil better at the moment. I love my kids but i really thought that I would have more help. thought my hubby since its his first children would be helpful and always want to hold em but boy was i wrong. he ignores them covers his head when he is asleep and I do it all. I breastfeed them and have had to drastically change my diet per MSPI recently i have wanted to supplement them with a special formula bc i am just spent. DH says i cant depend on formula or donor milk i need to keep bf'ing them fuck off you dont help me i will do what i need to too keep kids alive and my self sane. boys also have reflux so i am constantly covered in barf and refeeding them which is hard to keep up with 3 other kids that need me. Trying different meds and less milk per feeding nothing seems to help. then they cry bc they have a tummy ache or want to be held or pacify on me it seems never ending. no point to this thread just wanted to say hi and let you know i am still alive with twins and i miss you all plus i get so pissed when people with twins are being bullied into sections and interventions i am proof that you can have a natural homebirth with breech twins my pregnancy and delivery was easier than this life at the moment but hopefully it will pass. Please dont let yourself be bullied with ur pregnancies do ur research fight for what you all want and dont hesitate to ask questions and get second opinions you owe it to urself and ur babies. Hope you all are doing well
I have six other children and the first year is hard after a baby for so many reasons, with 2 it sounds to me like you are actually coping!!! It will get better all any of us can ever do is try our best. good luck
Hang in there! Hopefully in a few months time when I have my twins and theyre both crying and my DH is doing 0% of the work and my other two kids are fighting and the phone is ringing and I have a few pots boiling on the stove, I can come on here and complain and you can tell me how it does get better!!!!
At the moment I cant even imagine what you are going through, my last DS had terrible reflux and that was hard enough with just one!!!!!! And only one other kid, I felt like I was going around the bend!! Ahhh I really feel for you
Yes it is hard especially when they won't stop crying, with mine Darcie had colic and Callum had reflux (not massively bad reflux but all the same he wasn't happy). I remember Darcie screaming till she was blue in the face one night for 2 hours, I was crying down the phone to the hospital, OH was working night's and said "well I can't leave work" I wanted to smack him in the face so hard
Do you have anything in your country like Comfort Milk? I know you are only thinking of formula feeding, I unfortunately didn't get the chance to BF mine as my milk didn't come in due to all the stress of SCBU, so obviously breast milk is best, but after I put mine on Comfort Milk and bought them Dr Browns anti colic bottles, they seemed to get much better, I also was prescribed Gaviscon for them and this helped greatly.
I can't even begin to imagine what a hard job you have with all the other kids, I'm in awe of how you haven't lost the plot. I think you are doing a brilliant job and your lil ones are gorgeous. Hang in there girl xxx
