  • I would recommend getting your 6 year old to help look after the twins with you, get her involved in activites such as bath time and putting them to bed. This will make your 6 year old feel more responsible and more involved. Also after you've put the 5 year olds down for the night use the time in between that and when your 6 year old goes to bed to enjoy some time with them. Good Luck.

  • You spend time with them all together. I have 5 kids and just included my older kids in everything I did with the baby when I had a baby. Obviously you cant include them in feeding if youre breastfeeding but at 5 weeks old Im thinking the twins sleep alot? Do arts and crafts wth the 5 yr old and watch movies etc when you have the twins down. When they are up include the 5 yr old in small things in helping the babies.
