It’s true to say that at some stage, all babies get sick. No matter how much loving care and protection they receive, there are times when they become unwell. Apart from needing to manage their symptoms, there are often changes in a baby’s sleep, feeding and awake routine when they’re sick. It can help to know what to do and how best to cope when they’re just not themselves.
Expecting twins or more can be a very different experience than a ‘normal’ pregnancy when carrying one baby. Apart from the obvious, like increased size and movements, there’s also more stress on the mother’s body and greater likelihood of her developing pregnancy complications.
