Well the twins are almost 4 months old so thought was long overdue for a wee update for you all.
The colic has finally subsided - colief became our lifesaver! However neither girl feeds the best even yet. Feeding times are still a bit of a fight, but think it is more a case that they are just not that hungry. So unlike the hungry horrace Ella. By this stage with Ella, she was already weaned and desperate to be on the mince and tatties. This pair are nowhere near ready yet.
They are delevopling well - regardless of the fact they are wee preemies. Katie is a real smiler and giggles at everyone who happens into her line of sight. Abbie's smiles are a little more precious as they are given out so rarely! Abbie is desperate to sit up on her own, and is pulling her self up. Also when help upright, she already knows what to do with her feet, and loves trying to climb up people. Katie is far lazier - clearly happy to let everyone else do the running about for her
The down side is both girls are teething at the moment and clearly are in agony
Poor wee souls.
Sleeping is another issue. They take their last bottle about 8pm and go straight to sleep after it. They then go for about 8 hours, and the next feed is about 4am. Any time we try to change the feeding times to get the to sleep 8 hours from 11 to 7 they refuse to feed
The last few nights they have changed their feeding pattern and now have their last feed at 10pm. However rather than sleeping 8 hours and getting up at 6, they still wake at 4am
Ella just loves the twins, and is always asking to hold them. Things are mega hectic, but getting there. Solve the feeding problem and things could start to be easy.
