The second month with the twins was an up and down one, trying to figure out what was going to work for us. Sleep was, of course, elusive, and I had a hard time getting them up into their own room. Breastfeeding was such a struggle, and by the end of the month, it was over. On the positive side, I started a great mom/baby class when they were five weeks old, and got very good at taking them out on my own. And we took walks around the local pond with other twin moms, quite a sight with our parade of double Snap n Go’s. My dad, stepmom and stepsister came for a visit; my in-laws came to our house for Rosh Hashanah; and my brother and sister-in-law came to meet their niece and nephew.
Still, it was largely still survival mode.
