So You’re Having Twins! Baby Care Class

How do I get my twins on the same feeding and sleep schedule? What if they cry at the same time? 

Is it possible to feed my babies at the same time or should I stagger their feedings….what if I’m breastfeeding and don’t produce enough for both newborns?

What do people mean when they talk about “gestational age” or “adjusted age”? 

Every first time parent has questions and for expecting parents of twins, the need for information can be…well, doubled! In our So You’re Having Twins class, you’ll get concrete answers to all your questions about sleep, feeding, daily care and “what’s normal” from the newborn phase to starting solids to sleeping through the night. Classes are taught by night nannies and nurses (RN) with experience caring for twins and multiple babies at one time and can happen in your home or virtually.

In addition to evidence-based newborn care education, classes cover postpartum mental health and physical changes. It’s important to know the difference between typical postpartum issues and when it’s time to call a doctor. Knowing this information before the babies arrive can help expecting parents feel empowered and confident and head off potential difficulties.
