My gorgeous twins were born a week ago Saturday, and they are utterly perfect.
One of them feeds, sleeps and repeats nicely. The other one, the smaller of the two at 4lbs 13oz at his recent weigh in, really struggles with settling.
Tonight for instance, he’s been fed and winded and rocked and put down. But every few minutes after going down, he screams the house down. This is mainly in the evening vs day time naps. He seems only comforted when on me, over my shoulder or tightly held against my chest on his side.
I did mention it to the midwife who just said it’s normal but it means I am literally getting no sleep at all… which isn’t sustainable.
It may be that he’s just so tiny, he needs cuddles for reassurance. But I wondered if you have experienced similar and any advice to help him settle a little better please? I’m worried he’s not sleeping enough and the constant upset then makes me upset for him that I don’t know how to help him settle better xx
