    Savvy, I'm glad that you have had a good few days - as you say, long may it continue!

    Thorsoak, I'm sorry that 'your' twins are such hard work and glad that you don't have to deal with the early starts.
    Thanks hb2 - they are such little pickles, and bed time is a bit of a battle because twin 1 still needs her sleep and will happily nap during the day for 30 mins or so, then go to sleep by about 7.30, but twin 2 fights sleep and wants to stay up for so much longer - and wants to sleep in in the morning!   I do wonder if it is because twin 1 spent her first 9 weeks in NICU whils twin 2 came home with mum - not that you'd know that twin 1 had ever had a problem - she is a TOFS baby and had trachea and oesophagus were joined and she was operated on at 8 hours old to separate and join oesophagus to stomach - she now eats like a little horse and is only 1 kg lighter than her sister!
