The thought of triplets is starting to settle in. And I am starting to get scared about every thing. I can I spend time holding and loving on them when there is 3 and handle a one year old. How do feed 3 babies at once. Any advice will help so much

We have a mom of triplets on here somewhere .. and I know in my local Moms of Multiples group we have 2 moms of triplets. They survived. You will too!! I won't say it will be easy, but you can do it. I recommend seeing if there is a moms of multiples group in your area where you live also. They could be a great asset with local advice and help also!

I second finding a moms of multiples MoM's group in your area...mine has really helped to ease some of my fears and I've made some really nice friends.

Multiples can definitely feel overwhelming...I think the same thing about having the twins and our toddler and wonder how I'll be able to handle it. The other ladies have had great suggestions about finding a group....I hope that you can find some support IRL to help ease your fears. It will all work out, Mama!

I had twins and a 1 year old. It was hard, but we made it work. I invested in a few of the Podee bottles BPA Free Baby Bottle for Twins, Triplets, Octuplets, and Parents of Multiples by Podee® International and they were a lifesaver! I switched off who I held and fed and who used the bottle. The thought of having more than one is overwhelming, but it is possible. I never joined a multiples group, but it probably would have been a good idea.

I was going to suggest the Podee bottle too. Do you have people who can come over and help? I'm sure it'll be hard, but you'll figure out a routine and you'll make it through. You can look at some triplet blogs to see what they did. You can find some from the Multiples and More blog page. They even have some ID triplet blogs that are great.

Thank you peimum for my siggie
