Like Debra, even though my babies are a bit older now, I also like to read about your exciting first months of being mummies. after all of us waiting for it so long! I used to weigh my babies every day and get quite worked up if they did not out weight, especially Nadia who was born so small.
Toni I can relate to you feeling that you are constantly feeding, i am certain that's all I did until I got them onto the 4 hour feeds and later to solids. i just did not have any life at all! It will get better I promise! But I must say I feel I would not have managed without Gian Ford 's routine, it helped so much to get them on the same rhythm. of course, when one baby's small you still have to wake and feed both at least that's what I did , so greedy Alex was getting night feeds long after he did not need them
I do hope you find a way that works for you, Gina Ford is indeed restrictive, but I felt at least the routine gave me some control over my time by keeping them on the same schedule!
Sophie, I do hope the cranial sessions work and the breastfeeding improves. Even if it does not, you are doing your best, that's all we can do!
love and good luck to all of you and your lovely babies!
Alex also had that terrible breastfeeding etchnique, he just bit the nipple wildly for a while, got impatient and started crying! It was no fun and when my milk declined at about 7 weeks I gave up, with great regret!
