Hitting in babies

Thanks Pootle. Thats pretty much what I'd realised. Just checking I wasn't missing something obvious!

Hitting in babies

Hello there I'm after some more advice tonight! Harry has started hitting Hannah on the head - quite hard. Sometimes he looks like he's trying to caress her head and doesn't judge it right but other times you can see him looking at her and deciding to do it. I think it's based in jealousy as she can crawl and play with what she wants - particularly if his toy looks more interesting! (Thats another issue we;re working on!) Harry is still sitting and gets frustrated when he cn't follow her around....

Help! In Feeding Hell - is it normal and can I fix it?

I'd really appreciate some advice from experienced feeders out there! My 2 have been really good eaters. They ate pretty much what was given.About 6 weeks ago they were eating the equivelent of a 10month+ jar each plus a small dessert or bananna etc for every meal. For breakfast they loved porridge and would eat a whole slice of toast each. They started to refuse to eat anything by pushing the spoon away or keeping their mouths closed or turning their heads away or all of the above. I discovered...

PRAMS FOR TWINS

Definately a good deal. I got mine from Boots online so got lots of points with it to get lots of nappies! There was a sale on too so it's probably worth waiting and keeping your eye out. You will definitely be able to get it cheaper than full price in nearly a year. I THINK mine was £290 with the raincover and seat inserts. What people don't tell you is that cosytoes are universal. You don't have to buy the expensive nipper ones. Mine were £15 each.I think the Nipper ones were £30 each. I did b...

Low weights at 32 weeks

Hello there Just to add...I was ALWAYS scanned by trainee's being 'different'. The measurements varied from week to week. I had the same story as you until the twin cons measured them herself and she said each persons opinion of the 'edge' varies by a hairs breadth . It was our hospital policy to deliver at 37 weeks and I think I was sounded out about whether I would be happy to have then earlier but I made it clear I wanted them to be past 36 weeks if possible and she agreed straight way - with...

PRAMS FOR TWINS

Just a quick one to add that I love our Nipper 360 too. Having a pram with one handle is essential I think with twins. If one kicks off and needs to be carried I can manouvre the pram (plus 2nd baby obviously) with one finger.

Baby gym for twins?

Hi Claire Congratulations on the twins! I don't get on here often now! I thoroughly recommend the Fisher Price Rainforest delux gym. My two loved this one. They loved it until the minute they crawled off it. They started looking at stuff, then hitting stuff, then kicking stuff, then moving on their stomach and doing it all again - except they throw up on a machine washable mat! Then they sit and look at it all from a different angle. Worth it's weight in gold - and defintely the money. I was sad...

Mixed feeding - advice (help!) needed

Hi Moonshine! Massive congratulations! You are doing brilliantly. To be breastfeeding 2 babies is a tremendous achievement. I hope you have room in your brain for a few moments of self backing slapping and pride! I remember how tired I was with my brain constantly trying to calculate the time for the next feed for each baby and forgetting which one I was working it out for and starting again and again...nothing stayed in my mind so I couldn't make a straight forward clear plan. I met a new mothe...

Weaning advice needed!

Thanks Indie Chick This is the first time I've managed to get back on. Feeding is improving. She still eats smooth stuff but she will eat my homemade veg with the odd lump in so improvement is happening. She's no where near getting teeth yet so has no urge to chew. Harry has two. It's a lot less stressed now but thanks for the support! Take care Sue

Weaning advice needed!

Hi All I had felt I was coping marvellously with our babies until we started weaning. Harry started 6 weeks before Hannah and they are both now at different stages. Harry will eat anything and is coping well with food that is less smooth where hannah will only eat absolutely smooth food. Any kind of lump and she'll gag on it and refuse to eat anything else - generally for the rest of the day. nearly 7.5 months and the only way I can get meat into her is with jars of food. Some days she'll eat lo...

Twins sleeping arrangements?

Hey there. Glad you're babies are doing well. Mine got to six months now. They are little angels that always seem to smile - except when I try offering food to Hannah! I got one from a car boot sale which doens't seem to have a name on it and mum got the Hauck one. Both are fine. NOt much to say about them to be honest. They are the same size and style (net sides, plain) and aren;t used often enough to really think about. I will say that at 6 months it's getting tight in there for them to both s...

Yes they are TWINS!!

I get fed up with people telling me I'm going to 'catch' straight away now if I don't use contraception! My sister asked me around the dinner table with friends what sort we were using! My face shut her up I think! Before hand it was stories of how if we just stopped trying we'd have loads of babies because that 'always happens' and now I'm being warned off. Why do people think they have a right to comment on such personal stuff! Sorry got one on me today. Harry is weaning perfectly. Hannah scre...

Won't drink any liquid other than milk

Thanks for you advice Jodie. He is now taking water but only from his bottle at the moment. I'll keep trying him on cups and beakers once I get him established. He's still pulling a face but at least he's drinking it!

Yes they are TWINS!!

I tell them it's a boy and a girl and they ask me if they are identical. It's very hard to say no - they are a boy and a girl so they can't be identical without sounding really sarcastic. When I do say it most of them look at me as if to say "why not?" :rolleyesuh! Defintely agree with all the above. I always have time for prospective twin mothers though.

Won't drink any liquid other than milk

Hi All DH has started eating puree foods and loves them. However, I can't get him to drink any water or liquid other than milk. I've tried in a sippy cup and a bottle with handles but he cries and refuses it every time. I've tried warm water, cold water, water from steaming the pears, orange juice to 5 parts water but he pulls a face at all of it.He's eating a lot at lunchtime now and I really don't want to top him up further with milk for ever but he's already been constipated once and I don't ...

sleeping longer at night

Hi IndieChick Hang on in there. You can see the light I promise. When we moved ours into the nursery (at about 3 months as Hannah was turning 180degrees and kicking Harry in the head!) we put them in the same cot for the first couple of nights before spliting them up. This worked for us and we split them a couple of days later as they didn't seem to notice. Hannah worked her way into the corner and clung to the railings for two nights but was fine after that. Hannah sleeps through without fail b...

PRAMS FOR TWINS

Sorry Bubble and all other single mothers out there! That was a stupid comment to make. Pre pregnancy I had thought very young babies boring. As much as I wanted one they didn't do much! Now obviously having given birth I know mine are a delight and really funny to watch from the word go and perhaps assumed it was because there were two. Duuhhhh! Obviously every mother is going to think the same of their babies!
