Advice for twin moms

My advice to new moms of twins is first of all, to get help. I think you really need help whether it's a housekeeper, a neighbor, your mother-in-law, because it is hard to do it, to have these two new babies all by yourself. That's the first thing. The second thing is to take a lot of pictures because you don't remember. I know that people say that, but it's very easy to miss your kid's life and not take any pictures because you're so busy. So what we did is once a week, every Wednesday, was our picture day in the morning that we don't forget. And you get to see them as they grow because you don't remember. And the third thing is to take them out one at a time. I didn't take my twins out together. So if they did a baby class, I only signed one up. One thing, I didn't pay for two, I just switched. And then I got one-on-one time with the babies. It wasn't that stressful. Don't think that you have to have both of them around at the same time and they have the exact same experiences, because it just doesn't work out well. And remember that this, too, shall pass.
