Being a mamma of twins come with its own challenges.
I had the privilege of connecting with three mamas of twins on Instagram around their experiences of having newborn twins. They have kindly agreed for me to share their experiences. I have also linked these mamas Instagram accounts below so that you can go see their cute little ones on Instagram.
Ain’t nothing cuter than twin babies!
For this post we will focus on the top two survival tips for life with newborn twins from each mama.
Life With Newborn Twins: Survival Tips From Moms of Twins

Routine, routine, routine

The hospital prepared feeds and put them in the fridge. We did the same and prepared 12 hourly feeds and refrigerated so come feed time we were not running around with crying babies boiling kettles etc. We would warm the milk to the right temperature and that worked well with midnight and the dreaded 2am and 5am feeds.
Getting into routine
Getting them into routine and a similar routine was important for us. Again it was so that it wasn’t all around the clock non stop. Especially because in the 1st couple of months we just did everything solo with no help at all, while still ferrying our eldest back and forth to school so routine was very much necessary.
