With a newborn in the house, it’s hard for the parents, especially the mother, to have a regular eight hours of sleep. I can sleep before for eight hours straight. But now, having two hours of sleep straight is already a luxury. I have to wake up every other hour to feed the twins and change their nappies if needed.
This will go on until the babies can sleep for several hours without feeding. Maybe, that will be when they are about two months old. Good thing I’m already in my thirties and having zits is not an issue anymore, unlike when I was still in my early twenties, where lack of sleep causes pimples to come out. Otherwise, I will need treatment for acne like tretinoin and other pimple remedies.
Oh, I just wish the twins are already in their sixth month so that it will seem that things will be back to normal. For now, all I want is to have more sleep.
