I've not been on for a while as I'm Mon-Fri going to my daughter's all day to help her with the twins. They are growing well but she now has two issues that I would like to help her resolve (if possible) as its driving her a little miserable.
Firstly, twin 1 is quite placid and can go to sleep on her own (not always) so that's OK. Twin two has always had colic and is very windy so that has kept her awake. Now, the colic is not nearly as bad but unless she is out in the buggy or car she finds it very difficult to remain asleep during the day. We give her cuddles, wait until she is asleep (not recommended), and then put her down - she sleeps for maybe 10 minutes and then is awake again. However my DD was very similar in her behaviour - awake and crying most of the day but sleeping at night, as is DGD2. They are 10 weeks but were born 3 weeks early so are maybe 3 weeks behind in some aspects. Anyone got any suggestions?? All gratefully received.
Secondly, my DD is breast feeding them but we have been trying a bottle just in case. They really are very resistant to this and just cry even if they are hungry. She currently has a near to breast teat for the bottle and we were wondering if a different teat would help. All suggestions also gratefully received.
Sorry this is a little long but I'm hoping for some suggestions. However just to add that my mother only had me because I was such 'an awful baby' - crying. I suspect we will just have to live with DGD 2 until she grows out of it as they usually do once they are able to sit and move about.
