FeverPosted: April 17, 2010
I am breastfeeding the twins, which has been going fairly well. I will admit it is a lot harder to breastfeed two babies at the same time rather than just one. I tried nursing one baby at a time, but that did not work out that well. I found that once I was done feeding them I did not have a lot of time left to myself and that also meant less time with Cooper. So I am tandem feeding (feeding them at the same time). I also worried that I would not produce enough milk to feed two babies. That is not the case!!! I am making more than plenty, which actually leads to the title of this post- fever. Because I am making too much milk, I have developed a fever twice now, 101 and higher, due to an over production of milk. It sucks! It makes me feel achy all over, chills, sweats, and headache.
Please pray that I am able to get over my current infection and fever.
Thought I would also include another picture of the girls until we finally get an album of pictures up and running. They are one week old here.
