"stay awake" sung by julie andrews... i set this song on repeat, and 9 times out of 10 am rewarded with sleeping babies. it also prolongs naps, but it may wear on adult listeners! my boys really respond to music - this one song in particular.
back pillow - makes all the difference in nursing, rocking, sleeping sitting up, and giving bottles in bed. i just got one like this
baby carriers - for easy-on and off, we all love the kangaroo korner fleece pouch. for carrying two, or for a more supportive fit, we love our sleepy wrap.
snap n go stroller - i got a single and love it. easy to push with one hand, light, easy to put together. i push one babe and sling the other.
pacifiers. ugh, i never thought i'd be a binkie pusher, but also never thought i'd have twins. after a month in the nicu, they're hooked, and i have to admit, they're helping me maintain some semblance of sanity.
diapers... well, it goes without saying, right? but i have to say, pampers swaddlers win hands down over huggies, which have leaked every time i've used them. far more preferable are our cloth diapers, and my faves so far are very baby - thanks, Miriam!
people who help! ha, ha... i've never been so eager to say YES to offers for help. i've been so lucky to have an amazing core of supporters, and every day i thank my lucky stars for them and for a very generous fellow twin mama, who has been dropping off bags of wonderful food every week. there are a host of others who, between their delicious foods, visits, and baby clothes gifts, have made such a difference! from afar, emails and cards welcoming the boys and offering moral support have been so touching and wonderful.
ok, babies waking - gotta go!!
