Mommy Tips


There are a couple of things I’ve learned over the past few years that have made my life a little easier I would like to share.
-Always park by the cart corral at the store. That way you don’t have to walk away from your kiddos to put it up.
-If you have to breastfeed your twins (or singleton) in a restaurant always start with the side you write with. That way by the time your food comes you will have you “good” free hand to eat with or cut up your other children’s food.
-Always have distractions in your diaper bag for the older kids. Some times if I’m in public by myself with all four kids I have to have to attend to the babies. (Like nursing, burping, and changing diapers) A two and four year old can only be patient for so long. Have activities or special toys in your bag. For example a travel size echasketch, crackers, a play camera or phone…anything different then what they usually play with.
More later…Maya’s up…

Dana-
HI, I'm kinda a blog stalker. I found your blog because I noticed you were a follower of "Or So She Says", a blog I read daily. I am also a mother of twins and recently decided to start a blog specifically for other mother's of twins. It's called MOTBITS.
I have just barely started and only have a few posts on there (you know how hard it is to find time to post). My plan is to have it kinda be a forum for MOTs to come to and read other MOTS experiences. I would love if you would be interested in doing some guest posts. AND/OR if you wouldn't mind if I posted links to you blog about breastfeeding and things that you have learned.
Please email me for more information if you are interested
info(at)motbits(dot)com.
Check out the site. www.motbits.com
Thank you for your time!
