A month already
as jhb said its a personal choice. I let them lead me during the day and they got into their own routine, the only thing we introduced was bedtime at 7pm and started that at 12 weeks. This is age most people start bedtime. We dont bath every night as Anja couldnt cope with it so do story, singing, pjs, sleeping bag, bottle, bed. As long as you keep what you do the same every evening they soon understand. Gina Ford is a very strict routine person and some people swear by her, I personally couldnt keep to it and found it stressful so it is a personal choice. Google her and also the baby whisperer. Follow your heart, it is always right for your family. Congrats on making the first month
How is everyone else?
Tracey - cant believe Kara is 2, I remember checking in on the site for news.
Tracey - peanut 2 aswell - time flies too fast
We are doing ok, I find weaning very hard and cant balance bottles food so both babies have been waking in the night again
they also do the great twin trick and take in turns so 1 night 1 will sleep through and the other wake then the next night they swap. 2 nights ago they were both awake from 3:30-5 cooing away and playing in their cots
I have tried baby led weaning and William is doing ok but Anja doesnt put anything to her mouth at all. She is a bit behind developmentally so monitoring her. They are 7 months now and I go back to work September. So sad but dp will be looking after babies as he is out of work (just hope he can cope), Im doing 30 hours a week. Still feel sad I know we will never have another baby but so grateful for my miracles. My friend said to me "well you would only have had 2 anyway" she is right but its the fact that we dont have a choice, anyway going on far too much!!
to you all XX
