So I suppose this goes for people who have more than one child and not just twins. But synchronised illnesses are all the range in our household. As soon as one twin gets a sniffle, you can guarantee the other twin will fall ill in a matter of hours. Germ tennis happened from the moment they were born. Both twins were sharing bottles and dummies (because it’s impossible to remember which bottle belongs to which twin when you are sleep deprived times two) and they both got thrush of the mouth. We had a nightmare trying to get rid of it because they kept passing it to each other. So what do you do when you have two sick babies at the same time? Panic? Ask for help? Narr you just get on with it, usually with no sleep the night before. When my twins are ill, they are obviously more clingy, so forget trying to wash the dishes or get dressed or do anything other than give cuddles and hugs. Sometimes you just have to ride the storm. It is one of those times where you just have to cancel all plans and write the day off. Just try to get through it as best you can. But it is hard dealing with two sick babies needs on your own. At the end of the day, you’ll feel horrendous yourself but hey..? who said twins were going to be easy!?! And sick twins!?…well….just have more wine on those days.
