first: many twins are preemies, do your best to keep your babies in as long as possible. eat, eat and eat some more! listen to your body, and do not over work yourself. be sure to stay hydrated! i will tell you that having one or two babies in the nicu, while having a toddler at home is hell. so do all you can to keep your babies in as long as possible!
when people ask what they can do to help, tell them! if it is laundry, running errands, cooking, cleaning...tell them!
frozen meals are wonderful gifts, if anyone asks! people get very excited about twins, so you should get some offers of help!
i found with my twins that every 3 months things got much easier.
get as much rest as you can now, because it may not be possible later! my boys were 3 and 4 1/2 when i had my twins, so a bit easier than a 2 yo...maybe! congratulations!!!!! in our home, we have moments of chaos...but then we also have our moments of peace and joy as well
