The Teen Mom 2 star shared the first look at her baby boy and baby girl—her sixth and seventh children—after the pair spent weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) due to their premature birth. As seen in an image shared on Instagram Jan. 26, Kailyn carried one newborn in each of her arms as she sat in a hospital room.

Looking back at the experience, Kailyn—said she “probably cried more” with seeing her and boyfriend Elijah Scott‘s twins in the NICU than when she underwent her c-section.

“We learned so much about the families that are there,” Kailyn shared on the Jan. 26 episode of her Barely Famous podcast, “and some of them are there for months and months.”

At the time, the 31-year-old was especially concerned for her daughter—who she nicknamed “Baby B”—because the infant “would just sleep through feedings.”

“I had never seen a baby in my life not wake up to eat or show signs of hunger,” Kailyn explained. “She never had any feeding cues and when I tried to feed her, she wouldn’t take a bottle.”

The podcaster said it was “really difficult” to see the difference between her baby girl and her baby boy, who Kailyn is calling “Baby A” for now until she’s ready to publicly reveal the twins’ names.

“I’m seeing he’s in the NICU for some of the same reasons, but also he’s taking a bottle,” she recalled, “and he’s having no issue with that.”

Eventually, Baby A was released from the hospital. However, with his twin sister still in the NICU, Kailyn said it became more challenging to visit Baby B while also spending time with her other kids—including sons Isaac, 14, with ex Jo RiveraLincoln, 10, with ex Javi MarroquinLux, 6, and Creed, 3, with ex Chris Lopez; and baby Rio, with Elijah.

“It was an hour drive there and back and when I was there, I was there for hours,” she recalled, adding that what made the situation more overwhelming was that Elijah “couldn’t be there with me in the NICU when I went.”

As Kailyn put it, “She was away from her twin; we were away from her. When we were home, we still couldn’t process it because there was so much going on here.”

And while Baby B has since been discharged from the NICU as well, Kailyn admitted she still has worries about the long term effects the experience had on the twins.

“I’m still very much concerned about so many things,” she confessed. “I get worried that the NICU stay, what if it ruined their bond or put a strain on it. I’m trying to re-magnetize them to get them back to where they were.”
