Your ultrasound shows that you are being blessed more than one time. Congratulations. More babies equals more fun for you!
Multiples have a high risk of premature birth. You may have to use monitors and have other issues that surround premature babies. When you bring them home, you will find that you are continually tired due to feedings and sleep apnea monitor alarms, so you need to make sure that you sleep when the babies sleep and ask for help.
Many parents choose to put twins or even triplets into the same crib. They do not move around very much and they are used to being snuggled next to each other. You will need to move them into separate cribs when they can move around though as it may create the danger of suffocation.
The number of diapers that you will go through will be mind-boggling. Whether you choose cloth or disposables, you need to evaluate the price of each and the care of them. Disposable diapers are easier on your baby’s skin and you will get more use out of each diaper. Check different places to find the best price of your diapering choice.
Preemies are often more sleepy than full-term newborns. Preemies respond to over stimulation by sleeping and withdrawing even through feeding, bathing, and diapering them. Work with them and understand that they will begin to awake when they get closer to their due date.
Preemies frequently experience reflux and spitting up more than full-term babies. This is because the sphincter in their stomach may not be fully developed. Work with them, but do not overfeed them or you will see it again when they spit it up.
Routine is a very important part of living with multiples. Being flexible with your schedule will help your babies learn to sleep, eat, and grow better! Mommy will be much happier too!
