New twins parents face many problems and issues that they are expected to understand and deal with immediately such as twins care tidbits. Unfortunately, newborns twins do not come with an instruction book so here are a few topics that you may need to know about.

Twins Care Tidbits

Bathing your twins:

Until your baby’s umbilical cord falls off one to two weeks after their birth, only give them sponge baths. A cotton ball or cotton swab dampened with alcohol can help to dry the umbilical stump or follow your twins pediatrician’s directions. After the stump falls off, you can give them a bath in a sink or shallow tub.

Twins caesarian delivery:

A caesarian is usually performed to make delivery safer for you or your twin babies. C-sections can be done for many different reasons including stalled labor, complicated labor, problems with the babies that may make delivery difficult, or other problems. It does not matter if you deliver your twins vaginally or by a caesarian section, you are still a mother with a two beautiful new blessing babies.

Twins circumcision:

Many doctors agree that there may be some benefit to circumcision, but it may not be absolutely necessary. It may help to lower the risk of urinary tract infections and eliminates just about any chance of penile cancer. Circumcision does not cause long-term emotional problems for your children.

Twins crib death (SIDS):

Many studies have been done regarding SIDS. Although the cause of SIDS has not been definitely defined, there are some correlations that have been made between SIDS and the following things:
Male twins are more likely to die from SIDS than females
❥ Prematurity twins makes it more likely
❥ Minority twins are affected by it more often than non-minorities
❥ More baby twins of young, single mothers die from it
Twins baby who live in a home with one or more smokers are more likely to be affected
❥ Some people say that sleeping with your baby twins can reduce the risk of SIDS, but the American Academy of Pediatrics disagree with this statement and go on to say that there is a greater risk of SIDS in twin babies who co-sleep.
Back sleeping is what most pediatricians recommend for twin babies to decrease the SIDS risk. The reason for this is widely debated between health experts. If you have concerns, talk to your pediatrician.
