Raising a child is a challenging task for parents. Naturally, the challenge is twofold when it comes to raising two children together. So there are some things to keep in mind when it comes to caring for twins: Breastfeeding The idea of the mother and others in the family is that the mother will not be able to give the necessary breast milk for the twins.
That’s wrong. If the mother gets everyone’s support, the twins will be able to maintain the nutrition of breast milk for a full 6 months even for three newborns together. If you can handle this, you can breastfeed two babies at the same time. Baby food After the age of six months, when you start feeding the baby other than breast milk, give food for two to three hours in a row. It is normal for both of them not to eat the same amount of food. Don’t scold. If necessary, change the food menu. At bedtime There is no reason to think that the two of them will do everything together once they have twins.
Maybe one sleeps, the other child can play hand-foot match. Give him time without forcing him to fall asleep, walk a little on his lap if necessary. Separate bed If one child is sick for any reason, there is a risk of it being transmitted to another. So if one is suffering from any disease, keep the other in a separate bed. Ensuring cleanliness Since children are rarely affected by various diseases, keep them clean. To prevent corona infection, make sure that when someone from outside comes home or a guest comes to the house, he should not wash his hands properly, should not change his clothes and should not touch the baby.
More things that need to be looked at – Never think of twins as twins, raise them both with the dignity of different personalities. Such as arranging birthday gifts or parties separately for everyone. – Deal with twin children wisely. Want family support Naturally, every parent has to struggle to take care of the twins. In this case, the cooperation of the whole family is needed. Sabrina Ahmed Rimi, a mother of twins, said from her experience, it is very difficult to raise twins without the support of the family. I am lucky I live in a joint family and my husband, father-in-law, Nanas and even Nanas children take care of my children.
This gives me a chance to rest for a long time. When they wake up at night, my husband and I share their time. It doesn’t disturb my sleep too much. I am a working woman and at the end of the holiday I have to run to work again. But I’m not worried about that. Because I have family members to take care of my children. In fact, this opportunity is essential for every new mother, especially the mother of twins.
Because both the parents need to be healthy for the baby to be healthy at this time. Parents need adequate food and rest. In many cases it is not possible to have children alone. So raising twins requires the full cooperation of family members. Those who don’t have that opportunity have to think about how to get someone else’s help from the beginning.
