  1. Aww, Jamie, your story about finding out about your first twins is so sweet! My husband wasn’t with me for my ultrasound for my twins. I called him in the hospital parking garage but he didn’t answer so I left a message, “Twins!” and laughed and hang up. 🙂 I always thought it would be nice to have twins, but it didn’t really seem that likely, considering my previous 4 pregnancies were all singletons.

    I love your advice about throwing out the rule book. It’s true! With lots of little ones, the fancy bedtime routine with a bath time isn’t always possible every single day (at least for our family). I also found I had to be ok with letting the twins cry. My husband was busy watching our other 4 (the oldest was 6!) so when they woke up hungry they had to wait their turn while I changed each of their diapers and grabbed my nursing pillow (My Breast Friend is amazing!) so they could nurse.

    I also understand the struggles of breastfeeding. I am proud that I made it to 9 months with my twins. (It REALLY helped too that I already had 4 to practice with nursing.) But, I haven’t always been that successful. I recently had to give up nursing my almost 6 month old, which was heartbreaking because I was so sure I should be a pro by now. But the reality was my body just did not want to produce enough milk and with all the crazy stress from having 7 ages 7 and under, a sudden move, and sleeplessness I did not have the energy to keep up with it. Since I quit nursing baby no. 7, life with this new baby has become so much less stressful!

    Thank you for this podcast! I loved it!
