Juliet asked me to add here that the babies had their first solid food yesterday, aged just under four months. That’s the sort of thing mums regard as a significant milestone.
I tend to take a more pragmatic view that it now means we have two extra mouths to feed. Up until now they’ve been pretty cheap in that regard.
For the record, they had a small helping of farex. Margaret really took to it with great enthusiasm. The idea is they will sleep better at night if they have full tummies.
