Thanks for the advice ladies, hope all of my little boy's teeth come thru quickly and that this lovely little stage will be over soon!

Help - my one year old son is biting his twin sister! Advice?

Hiya, hope somebody may have a few words of advice. My twins have been a dream to raise until now - guess I've had it easy! However my DS has started biting his sister really hard - the teethmarks and bruising are there for days and of course she's really upset when it happens. Because he's only 12 months old it's obviously not malicious and probably he sees his sister as yet another thing to help him along with teething. I have no idea how to stop this - a 12 month old won't understand a tellin...

PRAMS FOR TWINS

It all depends what you need the pushchair for.....I can't recommend my Out N About Nipper 360 three-wheeler enough for long walks - it's great off-road. However in town it's a different matter. I tried navigating Mothercare last week (where you'd expect the aisles to be pushchair-friendly!) and it was just too wide, also can't get thru most standard inside doors. It's really lightweight and easy to fold though, and is good until the twins grow out of needing a pushchair.

Finally - a date for "twinnie time"!!

Well done for keeping them in for this long! The longer they stay in you the healthier they will be when they do make an appearance but look after yourself in this heatwave, get tons of rest and you'll be meeting them before you know it!

Dr Browns Bottles

I used Dr Browns with both my children and intend to use them for the next two - it really made a difference to the amount of colic they both had in a matter of weeks. More expensive but in my opinion worth every penny!

Does anyone know if you can feel twins kicking earlier?

Hiya lucky duck - congratulations! I'm the same as Lexie - I felt movement from about 14 weeks but put it down to the fact that it's my third pregnancy. You will (obviously!!) feel loads more movement this time - I sometimes think that they take it in turns and co-ordinate in kicking seven bells out of me!

Getting back into shape?

Yeah, you're running around like a headless chicken so much in the first few months that any excess weight just falls off (thank god - since I am truly blimp-sized already with this pregnancy!) Quick reminder though - don't fall into the trap of being too busy to eat and then eating rubbish just to get a sugar/energy rush otherwise you'll find it MUCH harder.

C-section or natural?

I'm stuck with a so-called elective c-section, not that I had any choice. My fist two children were caesarean births and my doctor/midwife is not even going to think about letting me go into labour! I'm fine with the procedure - been there, done that, but I'm a little worried about the time it takes to recover after the surgery with not one but two babies to care for - it was hard enough with just one when I was quite a few years younger! Frankie, when I had my 20 week scan the sonagrapher told ...

SECOND TRI - Movements and kicks

I love feeling my babies kick - and they are extremely active - very reassuring!Dumb question alert - is anyone else out there carrying twins wondering if they're hurting each other??????

who has bought what???

Hi all I've bought a few little things for the babies but we've already shelled out on the most essential item - a new car - a 7 seater! My tiny car would never fit 4 kids (all in some kind of seat), a giant twin pushchair and me and the DH. So once our finances recover from that we'll get the rest! I agree with you Clare - I know that twins are double the amount of baby but I didn't expect double the cost too!

Hiya Lexie Yes, the naming part is going to be tricky. We're sorted as far as the boy is concerned but I kinda sorta run out of girl names!!

PRAMS FOR TWINS

I can't believe the price on some of the prams/pushchairs out there! Anybody know of any websites that give reasonable, as opposed to silly, prices??? I'm looking at the nipper 360 too but the cheapest I can find for a new model is about £300!! And that's £200 less than my local friendly independent baby shop quoted!

when to start buying...

I am starting to shop early too, because I'm a born procrastinator and if I don't get organised the babies will be in hospital till they are 4 because I won't have bought the car seats! easier to look for bargains and make informed choices too when you have a lot of time ahead.

Boy Girl stats

My other half is convinced I have 2 boys, I have a feeling 1 of each. Can't wait for the 20-week scan, we need to find out to get organised (can't be doing yellow or green and having people peek in the pram going "oh, what a lovely.......um........baby!"). I don't know why I'm so desparate to find out when I really don't care as long as they are healthy and happy, I guess I've always felt the need for a little forward planning!

A question about c-sections, and fissures!

Hiya Laura Congrats on the pg - wishing you all the luck in the world! I'm not an expert on these matters but had my two daughters via c-section, the second one was elective (long story, both my daughters were born in the USA and usually if you have 1 c-section, they will all be c-sections!). I was under the impression here in the UK they are actively trying to reduce the number of sections performed so I'm sure your midwife wouldn't have mentioned it unless she thought there might be significan...
