Twins!!👶🏻👶🏻 Do you keep twins on the same schedule? 🦋🦋
Why is this important? 🦋🦋
Tomorrow I start with 2 week old twins. First thing I teach is my newborn routine for mom and dad.
This is feeding babies at the same time either tandom nursing or feeding bottles at the sametime. In total feeding in the beginning can take 30-45 mins long. That leaves about 30-15 minutes of playtime 😉resting with eyes open. When you see tired signs we swaddle and lay in a crib or bassinet (safe sleep)! This program is followed all day...
If you would like more information message me!!
It wasn’t until my 5th pregnancy that I learned just how high risk carrying a baby really was. By this time I had experienced my 3rd miscarriage and the stillbirth of one of my twins. Doctors decided to draw labs and test me for several clotting disorders that can cause reoccurring miscarriages. Honestly I had never had issues with clotting so i truly believed everything would come back negative. I was wrong. I will never forget the day I was told I tested positive for a disorder commonly known as Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS). So many questions came to mind. I felt like a defect. What will this mean going forward? APS is an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune disorders occur if the body's immune system makes antibodies that attack and damage tissues or cells. Antibodies are a type of protein. They usually help defend the body against infections. In APS, however, the body makes antibodies that mistakenly attack phospholipids, a type of fat. This causes the blood to clot. You’ve probably heard about people who bleed out or won’t stop bleeding due to their blood not clotting. In APS, however, too much blood clotting can block blood flow and damage the body's organs. So in other words, my blood clots quickly and faster than it should. APS also can cause pregnancy related problems, such as multiple miscarriages, a miscarriage late in pregnancy, stillbirth or a premature birth due to eclampsia. Eclampsia, which follows preeclampsia, is a serious condition that causes seizures in pregnant women. This is because clots can form on the placenta or umbilical cord causing loss of baby. There is no cure for APS. My current treatment plan is a daily dose of baby aspirin 81mg along with a blood thinner injection called lovenox. For the first and second trimester I inject myself once a day. As I head into the third trimester I start injecting myself twice a day. This is what keeps both baby and I alive. I struggle daily with the injections. Most days I cry from the pain & the burning of the medication entering my body. & although most days I'm terrified when my alarm goes off reminding me that its time to inject myself I know deep inside that my baby is worth every shot
Entre fraldas e mamadeiras, deixo o meu olhar sobre o teu, porventura serão brinquedos, bagunças, dias de shopping, o primeiro sutiã, à espera na saída de uma festa, um coração partido e até mesmo umas doses , mas pra sempre o meu olhar sobre o teu.
Registro desse amor que foi gerado no meu coração.

Are my child's legs aligned properly?
Often, parents will ask me if their child’s legs are aligned properly. Your child will go through many significant changes in the structure and alignment of their legs throughout their development. Alignment is an important contributing factor to your child's ambulation. The following information is based on normal development of a child.
Most infants have bowed legs, which is a result of the curled-up position of the fetus in the womb during development.
When babies start pulling to stand, the alignment of their hips is still slightly flexed and rotated in with their legs bowed. Their feet are placed far apart from one another to increase their base of support due to decreased standing balance. They are flat-footed and bear weight through the entire bottom of the foot. As they begin to cruise along furniture, they begin to strengthen the muscles on the sides of their hips.
The leg alignment will shift again once your baby stands and walks without support. They will continue to have feet far apart to increase their base of support and their hips wide and rotated outwards with their arms out to the side. They keep their hips and knees slightly bent and land flat footed without an arch in their foot.
At 18 months, or approximately 6 months after the onset of independent walking, the knees become straighter and less bowed. Children are more upright and able to extend their hips more than previously. They no longer demonstrate excessive movement of their hip out to the side.
Around 3 years of age, you will see children’s alignment change to appear more knock-kneed. The rotation of the bone in the upper leg continues to be twisted when compared to adult alignment. The arch of the foot is mostly developed at this point.
By 7 years of age, alignment has normalized to appear more like an adult alignment. The walking pattern is mostly mature, though some factors will continue to develop through 10 to 12 years of age.
