Getting Through the Day with Triplets

On the heels of our very successful Quadathon, newspapers everywhere are taking notice of parents dealing with the challenges of raising multiples. This article focuses on a mother of triplets and how she gets through her days.

"Every day, I wondered, 'How am I going to do this?' But somehow you make it through because the babies have to be fed and need to be put down and soothed," Jessica Melker, 28, told the Dallas Morning News.

Eventually, it got easier when the babies were old enough to sleep through the night and to feed "just" four times a day and all at the same time, with the help of bottles propped up with blankets.
