Wow! 2016 was a really busy year for our family for sure. Our beautiful twin boys were born at 36 weeks on 21 April - 1 week before their actual scheduled date but besides a few initial breathing issues, they were as healthy as could be and no NICU was required. Our little family of 3 instantly became a family of 5 and our then 9 year old daughter became a big sister x2.
During this period we were also in the process of immigrating to a new country so I was doing work interviews via Skype in the middle of the night, getting paperwork together, updated and submitted for visas and so forth - it was really busy. I was blessed to land a really good job offer and although devastated that I would have to return to work when the boys were just 4 months old, I knew we had the opportunity for my husband to stay home and look after the kids while I take on this new career challenge.
Fast forward 3.5 months on from the boys birth and we were on a plane leaving Cape Town to New Zealand!
The boys were pretty much on a 4 hourly routine since birth and from 6 weeks old, were exclusively formula and bottle fed. It was crazy juggling night wakings, feeds, and nappies while holding down a full time job and soon I found myself at breaking point when the boys were 9 months old 9 I was so very sleep deprived that I struggled at work, making terrible mistakes and looking terrible. I thought I had it all under control and we were fine, but in reality, the boys were as sleep deprived as we were believe it or not.
That is when I made contact with Jacqui who came highly recommended to us with the Baby Love Program. And even better still, she offered Skype consultations which was all we could do being in 2 different countries. Jacqui sent us the required paperwork to complete which included detailed information on the boys current routines from when they wake in the morning through to bed time and during the night. I had to record volumes of milk that they drank, when they ate, what they ate etc I sent all this information back to Jacqui and we then waited for our scheduled date to have our Skype consult with her - very excited that we could potentially be getting more sleep soon!
Jacqui turned what we had deemed a 'perfect twin routine' upside down! I was very nervous about making the changes she suggested and knew it would initially be worth it but that perseverance was very much needed. We felt that Jacqui guided us through the recommended routine that she had come up with for us, so well and that when we finished the call with her, we had all we needed in terms of knowledge to implement a much more improved routine based on the boys age. It was not easy and there were nights I cried out of exhaustion, guilt and you name it, however it took 9 days for us to make most of the changes and we had our first night EVER of the boys sleeping right through in their own cots, in their own room and dad and I waking up at 5am running to the room to make sure they were still breathing : What an amazing feeling to have had your first night of 7 hours unbroken sleep in nearly a year! Since then we have had some bad nights still especially when the boys are not well or teething etc but that is understandable. We had done away with the night feeds entirely going cold turkey and offering nothing which was probably the hardest change.
We had much happier babies waking up most morning at 6am only after going down for the night at 8pm with little to no wake ups 5/7 nights at least and if they woke up, most often they settle themselves again which they couldn't before without us rocking them.
Thank You Baby Love for giving me my sanity back and to allow for us as a family to be happier and more functional. My husband was able to cope better with the boys during the day with the new improved routine of feeding and naps and our daughter got better sleep as well.
