I was recently trolling back through some old blog posts of mine to fix some technical-y-Search-Engine-y stuff, and came across a post I wrote last June in which I offered up some somewhat unexpected advice for new moms of twins. And it got me thinking: maybe it would be fun to get some of youradvice for new parents of multiples—along with that of some fellow Babble writers—and compile it here.
Also, I confess: I’m having a bit of a dip mood-wise (Ah, my old pal depression. I wish you’d just send postcards instead of feeling the need to visit. You may miss me, but I really don’t miss you. At all. Ever). And when I feel this way, words don’t come as easily. Whereas making cute little graphics in Photoshop (which you’ll see below) does.
Anyway, I put out the call on Facebook for your advice, and got tons of responses. ‘Twas glorious!
A lot of the same advice came up again and again: Get help. Get them on the same schedule. Hang in there. Etc. So it was hard to choose which tips to feature, but here were my favorites — all of which rang very true to me — in no particular order. Enjoy. Add your advice in the comments. And pass this along to any new or expectant parents of multiples that you know.
