    The best piece of advice I got was to get the girls on a SCHEDULE…the SAME SCHEDULE. While the lactation nurse at the hospital (during a prenatal class) discouraged following the Babywise method, a couple of my friends strongly recommended it. I read the book a little reluctantly (given the admonition from the hospital), but I ended up following the methodology very closely. I credit that with getting our girls to sleep through the night by 12 weeks of age, and they are still great sleepers (knock on wood).

    The worst piece of advice I have gotten is not to worry about schedules…to let the babies tell you what they need and when. Hello??? Could you imagine doing that with multiples? You would NEVER sleep! (This advice was, of course, from someone with only one child.) 🙂

    I love reading other moms' blogs, especially those with multiples. I honestly learn something every day!

    Bottom line for me is that we can always learn something from others…sometimes it's something we want to do ourselves, and sometimes it's something we want to make sure we don't do.

  2. I have a hard time listening to advice from moms who've never experienced life with multiples. Whether it's fair or not, I find myself thinking "you do NOT understand." That's why I'm so glad I found this place! I desperately want advice… but find myself wanting advice from people who actually understand what I'm going through.

  3. I agree with the schedule thing (MandyE) If one woke up at night I woke up the other to eat and during the day we were on a 3-4 hour feeding schedule. If one was eating so did the other so they would then sleep the same. (This changed when they were only sporadically getting up in the middle of the night).

    The worse advice for us was that twins have to sleep together – same nursery etc. This did not work for us at all and one baby ended up in a pack n play in the office – turned playroom once we started the cry it out phase. They only kept each other awake. They are back together now that they are two but we ended up with a crib in the playroom for at least a year after we decided the pack n play was kind of permanent. Regarding this – see what your babies do well with and play it by ear! 🙂
