As I am just now getting to this post the girls are now 6 weeks! Its hard to believe it has already been 6 weeks since they were born, time really does fly by when you have babies/toddlers and it feels like it is going twice as fast having two babies! New moms, enjoy every single moment you can cause it goes so fast!
These girls are definitely growing. We stepped on the scale with them and they were both in the 9 lbs range! We don’t go back to the pediatrician until 8 weeks so we will find out measurements then.
They are eating every three hours like clockwork, and as of five weeks they started going 5-6 hour stretches at night! Yay!! This means we are only having to get up once at night! I exclusively pump so hubby and I are both doing the bottle feedings when he is home which helps me so much and makes things go a lot easier, especially at night! At night its like a coin toss on who gets the better baby! Whichever baby you start with is the baby you care for the whole night. So if the hubby’s baby is fussing and mine is not (as soon as I’m done pumping) I am going back to sleep! The same as if my baby was fussing, the hubby goes back to sleep!
They are going to be outgrowing the newborn diapers very soon along with some of their newborn clothes. This makes me sad in a way!
They are starting to have more awake time throughout the day, making it easier to squeeze in some tummy time/play time or even a one on one cuddle session with mom! As a twin mom I always feel like I need to give someone more attention (depending on who is the grumpy one for the day!) and of course making sure the big sisters get some of my attention as well. I hear a lot of “mom watch” these days!
Here are their one month photos:
