About Us

Hi. I’m ‘JallieDaddy’: not your average kind of Dad.

In my late forties I became a Dad for the first time, to twins: Jake & Ellie; collectively, & rather foolishly, known (to me) as ‘Jallie’ .

Born slightly prematurely overall their health was good but they both had what we later found out to be reflux. Ellie had acid reflux & threw up after every feed; Jake had silent reflux, which resulted in convulsions. They each needed to be held for at least half an hour after every feed & a lot of TLC.

The Mummy & I were both full-time parents for their first year; I was the primary carer for their 2nd. They’re now in their 3rd year &, although we have our problems just like everyone else, we are delighted with them. They have recently turned 3 & are now at pre-school. I still don’t really know how that happened!

There are an increasing number of stay-at-home & hands-on Dads – more power to them! There are many Dads of twins. And of course older Dads. But there can’t be too many who are all 3. That was one of the reasons I started this blog; in the hope that whatever experiences I had might be of interest to others: Dads, Mums, or those just looking.

It hasn’t quite worked out as I‘d hoped; a lot of the time I’m just too tired! But life with ‘Jallie’ – the highs, the lows & everything in between – continues to be my life’s great adventure.

  1. So fascinating and how lucky these twins are to have such a fun daddy! My first visit to your blog, but will definitely be back to follow these fun adventures!

  2. Definitely a rare combo. I’m just one, a dad of twins. We spent 6 weeks in the NICU, and they’re now 4. We didn’t get the reflux until our youngest, who’s now 2. Look forward to more from you!
