Coming home from the hospital – the first couple of days

The first couple of days home with twins can be quite exhausting. The best advice that I can give to make it through that time is acknowledge that you need help, ask for help, and accept the help that is offered. Don’t be proud. Don’t be stubborn. It will be better for you and for you children if you get some rest, eat a good meal, and take a moment to process the changes going on around you. Your world has just shifted dramatically on its axis and if you don’t take a moment to get your footing, you’ll just stress yourself out more. The same advice is true for people with single babies. Take the help. Get some rest. Enjoy those precious first days at home.
