Amazing updates Queen and Prairie!!!!!! So happy for you both.

 

Sorry I went MIA. It has been a haze. C section went well and Nora was born 6lbs 8oz at and Edward was born at 6lbs 11oz at 36+2. Fantastic size for 36 weeks and OB was very happy. As much as I didn't want a c section it went well and really felt like our day. OB made it very family friendly. Doula came and took photos and video. Helped with breastfeeding afterwards. I actually have vidoe of each baby being born which was great as you can't see much when you're on the table. 

 

A couple of glitches post delivery (raging headache and blurry vision for me for 24 hours) and then Edward had a tongue tie that all nurses and lactation consultant said to get fixed. Male surgeon agreed it was there but wanted us to wait. Get home and he really can't latch. Have to run around on the 24th to find someone to fix it asap. Then he was fussy for days as it healed. We are only just getting him latching now. Nora has been a champ with feeding from the get go. But cup feeding Edward is a logistical nightmare. Have a had a few very rough nights that coincided with the baby blues hitting. Much better now but still generally exhausted. C section healing is good but have to be super careful not to use my abs or to lift things. 

 

We are still in awe that they're here and feel so lucky after all we went through to conceive. 

 

Had their two week weigh in today and they are each 100g off their birth weight still but paediatrician was not concerned.

 

Sorry for the major delay. Have not had my laptop out much at all. I am pumping after each feed and have enough for the two of them so feel lucky about that. Already started a freezer stash as we can't get through it all. 

 

Hope both of you are healing well and babies are growing well. Need to read your posts a bit more carefully as I skimmed everything super fast.

Awesome news for both of you! Glad to hear everything is going well. I have (had?) a crazy milk supply too and started to freeze but we are going to have to dip into the frozen stock tonight. Not sure if theyve already hit a growth spurt at 3 weeks or if my supply has decreased today or what but I dont seem to be getting full bottles like I was with pumping over the past few weeks. Hopefully a temporary problem!

I am so happy both of you had healthy safe deliveries. It has been wonderful to be on this journey with you!

How much do you pump each session? I feel like mine are stuck at each taking 60-70ml per feed and feed 7-8 times a day. If they were full term I think they're supposed to be having more than that by now. I get another 50-70ml from pumping after they both feed. Sometimes less. If they have short feed or only Nora feeds I get 100ml. So I have an extra 300-360ml pumped each day over usually 6-7 pumping sessions but Edward takes one formula cup feed of 60 mls usually. 

 

Glad your supply is good! I feel like that is such a stress with twins and I hear a lot about it from my other twin mum friends.

Typically, I get around 150 ml after feeding them a bit first. They dont take a full feed from me yet though, although Tessa sometimes gets her fill. Usually they need a bottle to top them up after. Yesterday I was getting wayyyy less than normal. Not sure what was going on there, seems to be increasing again today, although I still get way less from my left side. I have a weird left nipple that is hard for newborns to latch. Using a nipple shield for now but until they get a bit better at feeding they wont be able to nurse properly from that side. I just need to be more diligent at pumping as my supply was so abundant I was going the whole night without pumping at all and still getting like 200+ ml in the mornings. Sometimes longer stretches in the day too...cant afford to do that anymore!

My daughter is in love with her siblings. She keeps kissing their toes or helping me give them a bottle. The first few days of pumping when they were still in hospital elicited hilarious reactions from her. Mom, its dripping!!!!...until I explained to her thats how pumps work, the milk drips into the bottle. 😂 Her mind seemed to be blown by the whole babies milk coming from Mommys boobies thing...lol

As a mom of a preemie and so unfortunately obsessed with how much he was eating for a very long time, at the newborn stage the bare minimum for food is 100 mL/kg/day to keep them hydrated. Anything more than that is a bonus according to our follow up clinic. At the breastfeeding clinic their targets were a bit all over the place but I think 120-200 mL/kg/day.
