They have been sleeping through the night since the second week in January. Connor did it first, now he is mr up at 4-5am and Lily had trouble at first but now she is fantastic and we usually have to get her up at 7. Now that I think about it there has been very few times they BOTH slept all the way till 7 on the same night! They were born at week 36, he was 5 lbs14oz she was 4 lbs 12oz, they are currently 14 weeks (10 weeks adjusted) and are now 13 lbs 12oz, she is 10 lbs 12oz. So yours are 11 weeks adjusted? Have they done anything yet? Mine are smiling more and more everyday but they are little wimps and have no upper body strength so they will not be rolling over anytime soon. Tummy time is a joke and they want no part of it. They are also developing crazy flat spots from sleeping!
Oh I bet the dreamfeed will make a huge difference!!! I plan to stay on the 3 hour feeding schedule till they are sleeping consistantly through the night, then we will move them to a 4 hour schedule and then a few weeks after that we will start trying to drop the dreamfeed. I cant wait to get to the 4 hour schedule!!
2 - If they (Connor is only one who has) wake we try to give pasi to go back to bed, if he continues to spit it out and fuss we give 2 oz and lay right back down without changing diaper or anything. Are you doing the "dream feed"?
Part 1 - Ohhh my goodness babywise was MADE for twin moms!!! I love it so much!
So my little piggys eat 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 oz formula each feeding. As soon as I started formula feeding my peditrician told me to make a fresh bottle with more oz then what we expect them to eat, give it to them letting them have as much as they want and then referigerate the rest to give at another feeding so we dont waste formula and are able to eat what they want. We now make a 6 oz bottle, 6 1/2 prepaired and they go to town usually comming close to finishing. We have never given more then that but we would if they still seemed hungry after a feeding. We collect the "used" milk and give them at the last feed of the day with a fresh few onces if needed to bump it to 6 1/2 oz.
