Who am I? I'm still figuring that out... My name is Millie and I'm a young mum of identical twin boys living in Bondi, Australia.
My weeks are generally filled with nappy changes and washing baby bottles in between preparing media plans (paid job) and the occasional pilates class (therapy). I'm also a passionate foodie - eating, not cooking!
I was also destined to be a mum. I recall being obsessed with babies from a very young age (perhaps a hang up of being the youngest of three kids). I would even insist at 5 years old that my mum take me to David Jones to visit the baby section so I could look at the cots and prams. So after meeting my husband, we were eager to start a family. The months rolled by and after countless negative pregnancy tests we sought answers. Turns out I had "unexplained infertility" at 25 years old. Having kids wasn't optional and after much consideration, we embarked on the IVF journey. Fortunately, the hardship paid off with the call from the IVF clinic informing me I was pregnant (hooray!). Three weeks later we attended the first scan to check for a heartbeat... there were two.
At 35 weeks, I gave bith to identical twin boys (L&L). Then I really knew what it meant to have your life turned upside down. 14 litres of formula and 70+ nappy changes a week, 2 hourly waking around the clock, silent reflux, hospital admissions... All while trying to close the 6cm abdominal separation caused by giving birth to 6kg of babies!
Amongst the chaos of newborn twins, there were many times I doubted myself and felt completely isolated wondering what to do with these tiny, screaming humans. It was in these moments I needed someone to remind me they'd eventually sleep through the night and feed themselves!
So here it is... Two, no more. is a place to take the piss out of parenting, mourn the loss of the concept of a "good night's sleep" and hopefully help other mums in those moments of desperation to remember, they will eventually grow up (and it's a fun journey along the way)!
