I'm really starting to hate Comcast, did you not get my email?

I didn't. I just thought you might be busy with the twins. How did the birthday celebration go?

One other question for you since you responded and I know that you BF your twins...

I find it hard to determine whether the twins are getting enough to eat. Sometimes they nurse great and other times they fall asleep and don't want to wake. They then wake up only an hour or so later starving. How do you know if they are getting enough? Any clues?

Hmm, I usually answer from my mobile account (it's easier than fighting ODD for the email lol) so that's weird. I now wonder if Tina got the one I sent her last week. Oh Tina... ;-) It's in my "sent" file so weird. Anyway, moving along...

How are they peeing and pooping? Are they having several (8ish) wet and a couple of dirty diapers a day? Are they crying as if hungry between? They may be tired out on those feeds they fall asleep quickly, but if they act satisfied after they wake and feed again, and they are giving you lots of diapers, I wouldn't be terribly concerned. Can you go in for a weight check just to see? My ped told me if I was ever in doubt to go in and they'd weight the babies. I also had them weighed before and after a feed to see how much milk they were transferring each feed. Could you get just a weigh-in appointment? Those usually are easy to get, since it's just the nurse and a scale needed, not the doctor himself. Once I did the before/after weight checks and saw at 3 weeks they were taking in 4-5 oz per feeding I stopped worrying. HTH and I'm so sorry my emails didn't go. Guess I need to check them on my phone and send them from my pc. Now if my modem stops acting up I'll be golden.
