My boys are now smiling and even talking (baby talk) it's really nice! I warm up their formula to a tiny bit warmer then room tempature, then add the rice cereal which is also I fine powder but a little larger gage then the formula. My babies sleep in their cribs but that was not easy to get them to do. They sleep in separate beds but they don't really wake eachother up. Usually Brandon wakes up first and Colton continues to sleep until  he wants to wake up. They nap together during the day next to me on th sofa but only if I am right their...if I have to clean up the kitchen I put them in their crib or in their cradles. Happy Holidays toyou and your sweet family!!!

I can't believe this is such an easy fix that I actually cried to see him so happy. I feel bad that I didn't get this solved 2 weeks ago. How are your babies are they ready for Christmas!!! xoxo Renee

Dorti The dr had me go to Walgreens and buy regular Gerber baby single grain rice cereal & had me put one scoop of rice cereal per 4 ounces of formula. so a scoop & a half for 6 oz or 2 scoops for 8 oz(use the formula scooper).I got home w/ Haley my nanny & it was time for his feeding, I had her feed Colton while I fed Brandon his bottle with the rice cereal.I could not even believe it.Brandon's eyes got very big & he started sucking with happiness.He stopped to burp & let out 1 burp instead of 5 & was ready to take more bottle, he ended up eating 7 ounces which he had never been able to do bc he would fall asleep from crying & exhaustion from burping so much. I have had 2 more feeding with him since then & both were an easy 7 ounces!

Hi Dorti, How are those two precious angels of yours doing? I had my final fet yesterday, only one was strong enough to be transferred out of 3!!!  But it only takes one!!  Kim had his vasectomy reversal done last Friday, he is healing nicely! Keep in touch, and enjoy every second of your first Christmas with your blessing's from above!!

Similac NeoSure...& they love it!!! i put the glass bottle with 5 or 6 ounces into a coffee mug of warm water til the NeoSure is just a liittle warmer then room temp. Also let me know if u need mixing instructions...it's a little tricky the first time...anyway Then i pour the NeoSure into a Playtex drop-in bottle....i have been through ever kind of bottle they like the Playtex drop-ins the best...Brandon is fussy...i think he is tongue tied (it's a condition where their tongue is too held down too tight to suck the nipple properly.) keep me posted.

Dorti thanks for the info!!! My guys for the last two nights woke up at 1 am, then 3:30am, then 7am so now they are getting to be on the same schedule as your babies!!!  It takes me 45 minutes to diaper change, feed & burp each baby so 1 & a half hours for both so basically my guys are now at 2 or 3 feedings at night, depending on how you count that. They are currenly taking 4 or 5 ounces. I am glad to have your babies to gage my babies from...it sounds like my babies are following in your babies' footsteps!!! Wow your babies have gained 3 pounds!!! You are Super-Mommy!!! Great job!!! :-)

I hope your mother-in-law takes great care of your kids, I know she will love taking care of her grandchildren! I am glad to hear that they are sleeping better at night. Are they waking up 2 times per night? or 3....My guys are sleeping more at night sometimes but not consistantly yet, but I know they will eventually. I wish you and your little ones all the best. I am going to go look at your profile and see if there are any new pictures!!! Keep me posted.  xo Renee

Dorti thnk you for your note!!! I am glad to hear that they eventually sleep longer!!! Dorti....I watched a video on youtube and the twin mom puts each baby in a bouncey seat and sits on the floor in the middle and holds a bottle in her right hand & in her left hand and feeds them at the same time. My guys are too young for this but it was something I was thinking of trying in the future when they both get up at the same time.....I think it would be better then one of my guys crying while I feed the other...I was wondering what you think of that idea. I do really like to feed them separately and have one on one time with them, but in a pinch it might be nice to feed them at the same time...of course my guys NEED to be burped at the half way point!!

Thanks so much for all your well wishes I really need them now. Yes,we're down to home stretch and I am so glad to hear that things are going so great for you. Yes, its been rough for me but I am so thankful everytime I hear that my babies are doing great. I am at the hospital so much its been hard to stay in touch but I think of you all all the time. Since I am on bedrest my coworkers actually planned a shower around that. We're still working on nursery..well I am over-seeing since I can't help but I hope the hubby will have it all done soon. He's been so great trying to work and run me to all these appointment and dealing with me sick all the time, but I know in the end it will be all worth it. Well you take care and I am sending you my best.

Just a quick note to say hi!Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for checking up on me...sorry its been so long but I have been so sick and in out of hospital. I have some issues and some heavy bleeding and have dialated to 3 cm now and about 70-80% percent thinned out so its been a heck of a ride. The babies are doing fine..they are monitoring baby heart due to a little bit of irregular beating but we all are staying positive....My weight gain has slowed down as well so I guess my two must be taking it all as well.
So how have you been? I hope and pray everything is going great with your bundles of joy. :)

Hey my weight gain has started to slow down too. My dr said wtih twins it slows down due to crowding. I am glad to hear you passed your glucose test & I knew you would. I am so worried about Meme and Precious....I am saying prayers for them and their babies! I have my BAby Shower coming up in 9 days ...I am at the tired & achy part of my pregnancy and I have 35 people coming....I will probably need a nap the second that everyone leaves! :) Take care of yourself & your babies! xoxo Renee

Dorti, my obgyn said that all my current blood tests that he has taken are showing so signs of a glucose problem....but I have volinteered to take it this Friday since I am having twins like you! I am thinking your test is a mistake. If you take the same one again on thursday make sure that you don't eat too late the night before, you eat no sweets the night before, eat low carb the night before and I wouldn't eat very close to the testing time. That is what I was told for the test I am taking on Friday. Good luck to you on your retesting. I really hope that you have no problems! Keep me posted! xo Renee

I just looked at Meme & Precious' Profiles to check on them and there are no updates since they went into the hospital. This is really scary...I am praying for both of them and thier babies! You and I need to also make sure we take it easy and not over do it! Tell your hubby to get cracking!! lol....he doesn't know! :)

Hi Dorti: It is really my husband that keeps pushing me to get things done. And he has been helping me. He is nesting big time! I am having a shower but we have bought most of the things that we need so people will be able to get us baby clothes and bath time stuff. My mom said we should have waited but my husband kept on buying things.Your shower is in a matter of days!!! How exciting! We have two rooms for the boys but for the first few years we are going to have them be together...so you may only need to get one bedroom ready for them for now. So many decisions! lol

Hey Dorti! How are you doing? I answered your stroller question on your post! Have you gotten everything else ready? Your nursery? Did you pack yoour hospital bag? I am doing great. My rib cage is pretty sore...I guess I am running out of space. I did get the nursery finished and I am starting to get things together for the hospital. I am getting the police department to install my bases and car seats on Tuesday. Tell me what you are up to and how you are doing!

Just a quick note to say hi!
Well right now I'm in the hosptial and will be here till I deliver.  My water broke on one of the babies about two weeks ago, so I'm on watch to make sure that no infection gets into my womb.  Right now they are doing fine - heart beats are strong and they are moving alot.  The longer I go, the better chance they have.  But at 34 weeks I'm going to have a c section if they can make it that long.  I just don't want them in the nicu for long.
