Those first few months after the twins were born were wonderful. Our little miracles were here, both beautiful and both adorable.
Except that they didn’t sleep much. So, of course, neither did we.
Hubby and I thought we were prepared for the sleep deprivation. EVERYONE tells you that it’s going to be tough. So you know it will be. However…when you are getting up every few hours for months on end, it can take its toll. And it’s much harder than you imagine.
And so with two little bundles now in our life, remembering things like nappy changes and bottle feeds, and how much they drank became our main focus in life. And something that sounds so simple now was a really difficult task back then, when you are just so tired! So we started a diary – tracking feeds, nappy changes and sleep patterns. Which was confusing, and ended up having milk (and sick) spilt on it, and was often lost a few times too!
If I was going through this experience again I would absolutely use an app. I’m always on my phone or iPad anyway, checking the news, social media, weather etc… and so to have an app that does all of the above for you, is such a great and practical idea.
I’ve found the BabyTime app which is twin friendly, and so easy to use. All you need to do is download it, put in your baby’s details and you’re away. Simple. And perfect for parents of newborn twins who can’t even remember what day it is!
It allows you to very quickly swipe between babies (if you have more than one), and you can run simultaneous timers across babies. Just perfect.
No need to worry about forgetting anything ever again!
The iTunes app store has the app here ready to download, complete with further information.
