So I have been spending the last week helping my friend look after her 6 week old twin babies. As a Health visitor and midwife of many years experience I have loved having the chance to spend time being Mary Poppins again. Today I thought I would ''do my 10 things on ten tips for looking after twins, so here goes. 1. Don't wear your most expensive gear as it is highly likely to get vomit, poo or wee on or a combination of them all at some stage. 2. When people come to visit get them to make the drinks and bring the cake, and make it a fiendishly rich one especially if you're breastfeeding! 3. Take up the offer of babysitters so you and ur partner can have days/ nights out. 4. Sleep when the babies sleep. 5. Never, never, never wake a sleeping baby. 6. Be prepared and a microwave steriliser is awesome 7. Go for a walk everyday to maintain it sanity and also cos the babies might sleep. 8. Try and feed the babies close together in time as it frees you to ''do other things. 9. Don't expect too much of yourself as twins are hard work. 10. Enjoy them as they grow up fast and before you know it they're leaving home. And that is some of the things I have learnt whilst being Mary poppins or as Grandad Twins said "nanny McPhee"
