Raising twins is not as tedious as it seems to be! Most new mothers get nervous, concerned and worried on the thought of raising their twins. However, with the right balance, it becomes easier to care for them.
Here’s how you can be a super mom while raising your twins:
1. Create a balance
As mentioned, it all starts with the right balance. Maintain a routine for your twins and make it a point that both of them do things at the same time. If one baby is hungry, feed the other one also. Let both of them take a nap together. This will really help you to do other activities. Once the routine is set, it will really become a simple task for you.
2. Keep things same initially
With newborn babies, things can be kept similar. Like same dresses and same pair of shoes. Of course, you cannot do this with a boy and a girl, which would need to be different after a while. Organize their closet properly, making it easier for you to find things and help you save time.
3. Divide things later
It is important to divide their things after the age of two or three. Most parents keep similar set of toys for both the kids. But, one needs to understand that despite being twins, they have to develop their distinct personalities. This should be done from the beginning. So, keep separate toys and clothes for your twins after the age of three.
4. Spend time alone
A parent needs to understand that twins are related and not conjoined. So, giving each child individual importance is a must. Spend separate time with both of them. Divide your time and attention: if one parent is playing with one kid, then the other parent should play with the other kid. Individual attention helps to groom the child, which plays an important role in his/her personality.
Just follow the above tips and your Motherhood journey will become much easier! Taking care of twins is easy, with the right approach.
