The beautiful and much in love couple Karanvir Bohra and Teejay Sidhu became proud parents to twin baby girls in October last year.
While the babies were born in Vancouver, at Teejay’s parents’ place, they have finally come home to India, and the proud daddy has been gushing ever since.
According to Karanvir, the babies have already started adjusting to the change in weather - from the cold weather of Vancouver to the heat of Mumbai.
"Thank you all for your love and wishes. The Bohra sisters have landed safely. Miko & Nonu (official nicknames) The one in my hand is Miko, Elder by a minute, A fierce Lioness by nature.Tj says she looks Japanese, thus the name Miko-Tashi. ?And of course the Tee is holding its the petite and dainty #Nonu, the name says it all, she is like a little doll princess": wrote Karanvir on his Instagram account.
The gusshing dad says that his excitement knows no bounds.
"My excitement has no bounds, I can't even express the feeling I have when I look at these 2 I haven't slept more than 4 hours in the last 2days, and I've been doubling up with my regular shoot timings, now the daddy duty has hit me like a thunderbolt. But you know what? I'm loving it, staying up late, now has a purpose - good bye sleep, see you in a year or 2," he says.
The homecoming was a grand affair, as the actor’s family was ready to welcome the family in traditional Rajasthani style, complete with mala, teeka and all the related ceremonies.
Tips to manage your twins in the first year...
While handling a newborn can be a challenging task in the first year, having twins means double the duty. But with a little planning and patience, you can soon get the hang of it, and how!
1. Get a twin nursing pillow as it will allow you to feed both your babies at the same time. It will also help you rest your arm and back, and avoid any excess strain to your body. Instead of holding your babies in your arm, you can also rest them comfortably on the pillow itself.
2. Prepare a baby sheet. Make a separate column for both the babies and add the daily chores you have to take care of, such as feeding, bathing, changing and so on. Once you give Baby A a bath, tick it off in the column. This way, you will know which baby has already been taken care of, instead of repeating the same for one baby and leaving out the other one.
3. Avoid dressing your twins in the same clothes, at least initially till you are able to really tell them apart. If you really want to make them wear the same clothes, try getting them in different colour combinations so that it is easier for you to recognize one from the other.
4. Speak to your paediatrician about the right top-feed for your baby, as it is likely that your babies will not feel full with the breastmilk alone.
5. Ask for help and delegate tasks where possible. If you live in a joint family, ask your in-laws to help with some of the tasks. If you live in a nuclear setup, hire a nanny or a help for the day.
6. Learn to make the most of the time you have in hand, even if it means you have to use shortcuts. For instance, instead of trying to prepare a full meal of roti, dal, sabzi and the like, try making foods that can be frozen and heated up. Soups, broths and even some Indian vegetables can easily be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer. All you have to do is heat it up and eat.
7. Keep the same schedule for both. If you are feeding one, don’t try to make the other one sleep. It can be a little difficult in the start, but it will be much easier for you, and your twins, in the months to come.
