Flashback: Twofer's Newborn Twin Feeding & Diaper Schedule

I am working on an article for Type A Mom and was remembering the early days with newborn twins. I went searching through their baby books and came across the chart we made to keep track of their eating, sleeping, and diapering.

It's not that we were particularly, um, anal (no pun intended). It's just that we were not the only ones caring for our babies. Those first few weeks we had a revolving door of people including friends, family, neighbors, as well as a part-time nanny and even a night nurse on occasion.

It was important in those early days to keep track of what they were eating because, well, because that was the first question the pediatrician would ask in those weekly appointments!

This chart made it easier for us to keep track and keep the twins on the same schedule.

I know several of you are making fun of me,

Not only am I not making fun of you, but I had a similar system. I also alternated who got which breast first. Mine had a little bit different appetites and I didn't like feeling lopsided.

Those early days it seemed like feeding and diapering was practically a full time job.

Heck I only had one and I would make a list like this. lol - I'm not making fun of you at all. You brave mother of twins!

My only question is, why does your chart say baby A and baby B? You had named them when you brought them home....

I think its a great idea, i tried to do a similar thing with each of my kids (all singletons) but never kept it up. It is important to remember these things

Various people in every country take the personal loans from different creditors, because this is comfortable.
