0-12 Months

Reflux is very common in premature babies, and since most multiples are premature, it is something parents of multiples struggle with. I too had to deal with this at varying degrees. Caitlin had really bad reflux almost from the beginning and the other two had mild reflux. We have found several things that have worked so well that Caitlin was taken off her medication and the reflux, at this point, has seemed to resolve in all of them.

I can not seem to convince Caitlin that 5am is not an acceptable wake up time. It doesn't matter what time she goes to bed, this week she has just been rearing to go at 5am.

I wanted give some friendly advice to those about to be parents of multiples... First off, the first year is rough and the first 3 months is extremely rough. Communication is going to be the biggest key for you and your significant other to get through this without a lot of hurt feelings and pain. Sleep deprivation does strange things to a person, makes you cranky, you don't listen to others as well, you switch to survival mode... and only survival mode.
