One thing I will say about babies....they are like mirrors.
If your calm they are usually calm
Thanks man! that is a great tip as well. thankfully I usually keep my cool.
Meaning, the next 20 years?
Ah, thanks for reminding me that. I was more looking into info to survive the upcoming storm
My tip? Don't have two at once. Humans are not meant to have litters. Found out the hard way.
It's simple - if the baby sleeps you can handle anything. If the baby doesn't sleep, you are f#*ked.
If you do end up seriously sleep deprived, an extra effort will be required to keep your emotions rational. Check yourself, check your behaviour, and make sure you are your wife's knight in shinning armor. She will be tested more then you.
oh, I feel for you!
Misses B and I are usually on the same level so i hope that we both can keep our emotions rational. How are the twins doing?

You'll quickly be able to distinguish between various cries! Even when you're asleep.
Even when I sleep... that is not what i wanted to hear to be honest.
Be there. Raise your own children. Encourage them to be the best, don't push them.
I need this one printed, on the wall. Great quote.

weekends: sleep while the baby sleeps.
weeks: ride to work once or twice.
about kids: all time with them is quality time. Don't stress it's quality time. The more time, the better. The first years are the most important. You maybe think a baby doesn't feel it if you are absent, but for sure they will have a thighter bond with you when you are present more.
This ride to work thing might be a hard one with my job. I'll try to be there for Baby B as much as I can.

Regarding the silence of the trainer, don´t try to be quiet around the baby. The baby lives in amniotic fluid right now (and water transports sound very well) so babies are used to lots of noice. So keep making noice after the baby is born, we used to vacuum and listen to music when our daughter slept during the first year.
If you learn a baby that it needs to be quiet to sleep you´re just creating trouble. So go all in on that noisy turbo trainer...
And congrats of course!
I had never thought of that, but it is quite logical to be honest. My home office is in the room right next to Baby B. I'll crank up the volume when I'm listening to Moderat
