? for MOMs of 1 toddler +2

I know it is so early, and I could end up not having twins but....today I was talking with my mom about postpartum life.  I am starting to get scared.  My MIL is 77 and out of the question for help because in 6 weeks we are moving almost 30 mins away from her.  She already gets exhausted after watching DS for an hour, so I can't really count on her.  My mom still works part time and quite frankly, I think she really doesn't want to help play nanny when we get home with the babies.  She was saying my aunt who has twins hired a daytime nurse and my grandmother would sleep over at nights for help.  Am I really going to need this much help?  I know its a long ways away but today really started to panic.  Should we start saving money to hire someone to help?  I am afraid DS might get neglected and I don't want that to happen!!

Sorry, this is a premature freak out, but I think the concept of twins is just now hitting....and I am panicking!

  • Can you toggle between mom and someone else?  Family friends who have children for DS to play with? We live 2.5 hours from all of my family :(.  So my godmom took her back to Baltimore ( we live in VA) when she came down to see the babies.

  • I only have twins, but it may not be a bad idea to story saving some money in case you decide you want the help And/or your mom can't help as much as you hope. At least then it's there for night help or a mothers helper to play with ds. Could give you pea

  • I have only had the boys for a week, but so far I have been fine on my own. My mom helped me nest and clean my house and now I just maintain it. When DS 1 naps, the babies are usually asleep and so I nap then as well. At night, DH helps a little, but for

  • If your DS is anything like mine, he will have a hard time being cooped up in the house all day, and it is hard hard hard to get out the door with all three.  If you can save for a little help later on, I would try to get a mothers helper at least a

  • Okay, this is all making me feel much better!  First thing we are gonna do at our house is get a fence for the yard so I can go out back with DS and let him hit the swing set while the babys are just hanging out.  Except its gonna be winter....o

  • As soon as my babies hit my 40 week due date, they "came alive" and also became HORRIBLE sleepers from then until 4 months old (when we started modified sleep training). They were up every single hour during the night (wish I was kidding about that) in
