We have had a big couple of days. Cork and I switched the kiddos car seats out, so they are now in their convertible seats. My back couldn't take lugging both car seats around and I was taking them in and out of the infant carriers at every stop. The kids also hated the infant seats. They seem to really like the new seats. I hear more talking and giggles and less screaming.
Our other big change happened today. We went and picked up the helmets. The girls had to wear them an hour on and an hour off today. They won't start sleeping in them until Sunday. By Tuesday they'll be wearing them 23 hours per day. We were told some kids really do not like the helmet in the beginning. Arya and Eiley don't seem to mind them at all. They even conked out in the car on the way home.
I thought the helmets would solve our tandem nursing issues. The girls tandem nurse just fine in the middle of the night. During the day, when they are awake, they pick on each other while they nurse. Arya especially loves to poke at Eiley's head. They both found the hole at the top of the helmets and are using it to pick on each other.
