wow, sounds like you have more than your hands full, i, too, have twins, almost 5 mths old and know how demanding they are..
i have my good and bad days, and it does depend on how much sleep i have to how well i cope throughout the day
at the moment my girls are sleeping well, 4hrly feeds through the day, with about 1 1/2 hr- 2 hr sleeps, we have a tough time with them settling at 6-7pm, but we find if we wake them at 9.30-10pm to top up, then they will sleep through till about 6am
i am still expressing my milk for them, as we found it easier to feed both at the same time with my husbands help... but i am finding now that all the expressing and sterilizing is becoming very draining on me physically, not sure how long i will last, but was hoping to make the 6mth mark
i can also understand your isolation, my husband also works away, offshore for 3 weeks at a time, i don't have family in town, which is difficult
hope things are better for you, would love to hear an update
