    Hey COngrats Viiksha

    Have you selected names?

    Try feeding one at a time to avoid pain or you can express milk for someone else (Mom, DH..etc) to feed one baby while you breast feed the other....

    Ramya, Jaya...

    when did your kids move to Demand feed...currently I am following the same schedule as what was being done in NICU...but my mom is gonna leave in 2 days..so not sure how to manage...

    What was your expereince in transition from Fixed qty feeds (for Low birth weight babies) to Regular On Demand feed like other babies...

    Also milestones for both seem diff..is that common??

    Mathira, how are you doing? hve you decided on names?

    Yes Ssm.. Their names are Sai Nikhil & Sai Mukhil..

    Hows your kids? Are they able to identify you?

    & one quick question to you.. Which formula you are giving? Is it new born one or premie formula? I'm giving Premie formula only.. So when we have to start giving the regular new born formula?

    Hi Viksha.... A big hearty congrats on the arrival of the baby boys... I wonder how you managed to find time to even inform us on the good news...Must be really busy, hope you are taking care of yourselves.
    Meanwhile, as we are on the waiting list, had a few queries (only if you can find time to answer), how was the birth weight of babies? did they go in any NICU? are you completely relying on breast feeding or a mix up? Any other tips you would like to provide us?
    Take care

    Ohh.. So it's based on the weight of the babies & not the months.. Right now we are giving Similac Neosure. Since the quantity is very less (somewhat around 30-40ml), they are crying more frequently.. If we increase also, they can't take it in one stretch.. & if we give it forcefully then, they will spit up immediately.. that's y, i want to change the formula... Anyway, Tomorrow we have an appointment with Pead & i will check with her also.

    Thanks or your reply Ssm.

    Hi SSM,

    Even our dr suggested us to continue the same formula until 6-9months. So we have to use the same similac for the next 4-6 months. Settling down may take some time.. Both of them are having nasal problems & they also have colic.. :-( so most of the time, they are crying & wanted us to take them in hands...

    & How are ur kids dng? I think they have completed 3 months.. Hope you might have settled down now.. Take care..
