Twin Stats - 4 Months

A third of our first year has gone! Who took my little babies and replaced them with little women? The girls are so grown up and personality filled, I'm more in love than I ever thought was possible

Here's our 4 month report card.

SpIce aka Twin A
Weight             14lbs 4oz (Looks like growth is slowing from the initial 2lbs every month)
Dress size        3 - 6 months
Diaper size       Size 2

Sugah aka Twin B

Weight             13lbs 2oz
Dress size        3 - 6 months
Diaper size       Size 2

We are now officially on a schedule. 4 bottles of 7oz in the daytime and a 4oz bottle at night. Scheduled feedings are at 5am, 11am, 3pm and 6.30pm then sponge bath and bedtime is between 7 and 8pm. They'll have another feeding between 11pm and 3am whenever they start fussing. I don't wake them up to eat at night because I'm hoping that one day they sleep right through the night feeding crosses fingers. Both babies are taking around 28-32 oz daily. Naps are still on demand as I'm not really keeping track but I'll have to start now to make sure that night sleep routine is not ruined.

Top Gear - My fave 5 

Double stroller - I'm braving the great outside alone with the babies more and more

Bumbo seat - I resisted buying this because I couldn't quite get over the price for what looked like colored foam BUT when I noticed flat spots developing on the back of the babies' heads, I panicked. I couldn't rely on keeping them on their stomachs for tummy time because they got upset after 5 minutes. The bumbo was my last option and yes looks sheepish, it was worth it. I already see them sitting up better with increased muscular strength in their necks and back and I've had the bumbo for less than a week.  

Baby carrier - for when I need to carry the two babies up and down the stairs. Also, when I go to a store that has shopping carts, I put one baby in the infant seat inside the cart and hold the second in the baby carrier 

Bouncers - I have two. The precious planet and the rainforest both from fisher price. I use them to feed the two girls at the same time

Jersey Sheets - yeah you read that right, king size jersey sheets for mommy's bed. I had a new pack just sitting there and I finally decided to use it and oh my! I can't believe what I've been missing. They're so soft and warm and just generally awesome. Even the babies love them. I think they were a contributory factor to both girls rolling over (see below) for the first time when we had tummy time on mommy's bed.

Both have had a few nights of sleeping 10 hours without needing a bottle. SpIce has rolled over from stomach to back three times in one day and hasn't been able to repeat the feat again. Sugar rolled over once and that's it. I'm eagerly awaiting the next occurrence.

The pediatrician was right. 4 months is really when things start getting interesting
