We’re a few weeks into our weaning adventure and it’s been interesting, messy and at times, hard work (the double cleaning and washing is a nightmare)! Been doing a combination of baby led (blw) and purées. I intended to do more blw but I’m scared of the choking! So far we’ve had the following finger foods: Toast Banana Avocado (not popular) Melon (scary when Heidi coughed up a huge chunk 2 hours later!) Rusks Sweet potato Broccoli Cauliflower Courgette At the moment it feels we’ve got such a long way to go… x

We began weaning last Monday (15th July). It was the day after we returned from Spain (post to follow) and both twins had shown lots of interest in food, so we decided it was time. I’ve included a photo! So far they’ve had: Baby rice Carrot Banana Banana porridge Sweet potato Banana and sweet potato (for Heidi) have been the most popular. Henry is very good at taking food from a spoon, whilst Heidi just wants to feed herself!! Keen to go more baby led once they reach 6 months, to hopefully make weaning as easy as possible, so just…

Well as the title says, it’s been a while! H & H are now 19 weeks and growing so fast (Henry is now 13lb 8oz and Heidi 13lb 5oz), Henry can now roll and they are finally sleeping better! Heidi goes from 7pm ish to 7am ish. Henry is still a little hit and miss, we always feed him at 10pm, sometimes he wakes once, but if we’re lucky he’ll go till 6/7ish! Getting more sleep makes a huge difference! Life as a mum of 3 is certainly hectic, but we’ve all adjusted well. Oscar loves his two siblings and…

Just when I’m feeling totally sleep deprived and like we’re getting nowhere, Heidi has just done some fab sleeping, 7.30pm until 3am! Tried to dream feed at 10pm but she wasn’t interested. It may be a one off but at least we’re going in the right direction. Now just need to get Henry doing the same…

The twins are now 4 weeks old and so far so good! The time is going so fast. Trying to capture it all is hard as I am so busy feeding, sterilising and washing! My mum has been fab, coming round everyday to help with cores and feeding. Trying to feed the babies together and it normally works, although a couple of times this week it hasn’t worked that way at night!! It’s hard to know what to do, do you wake the sleeping twin or leave them to sleep to encourage good sleeping habits?!? I’ve tried both and leaving…

I wanted to ensure I capture all the details of the birth of our twins as it was a lovely experience. I was induced on the Friday, although when I rang at 7.30am to see what time to come in and they told me they’d ring me back at lunchtime I was upset as thought it would end up behind delayed and I was so ready to have them out! We decided to go to McDonald’s for breakfast and then to Tesco for some last minute bits. As we were just about to leave the house I got a call…

The twins arrived last Saturday and are doing well! Henry was born head first at 2.44pm and Heidi was born breech at 3.06pm Will post full details when I get a spare 5 mins! J x

Had our final scan yesterday and both babies estimated at 5lb 8oz, no wonder I feel so heavy!! Finally been given a date for induction Fri 1 Feb – hurrah! Can’t wait to meet them both and also get my body back! Feel so heavy and it hurts when the babies move as it’s clearly cramped in there for them. Looking forward to those first cuddles 🙂 Spending this weekend relaxing and eating out. Our last weekend as a threesome! J x

So my last post talked about how much I was struggling with the flu. Well the day after I wrote that post I ended up pulling a rib muscle with all the coughing, the pain was agony. Tried to rest but the day after started coughing again and it got worse. Was literally screaming and crying in agony. Simon panicked and rang NHS direct who told us to go straight to hospital so we had a mad dash to A&E! Got transferred to labour suite where they checked babies, took blood and gave me painkillers and antibiotics. Turns out having…
