So I know a girl whose having triplets (most likely by the end of July, hopefully the beginning of August). Anyways, I was at her baby shower today and found out that she's planning to nurse them!! I thought it was awesome because I kept hearing comments from other people that it would be near impossible to nurse triplets. Her doctor had told her that its all supply and demand (go doc!). She plans to bf two of them, pump for the third, and rotate all babies (for example, baby #1 would have right breast, then left breast, then bottle, repeat). Her sister just had a baby three months ago and is planning on helping her by wet nursing when she needs it.

Anyways, I thought it was awesome that she is thinking of nursing. I don't want to give her unsolicited info, but I thought of casually mentioning this group to her in case she has any questions that you mamas with multiples can answer.

I'm still a little in awe... maybe I'll make her lactation cookies after her lo's are born :o)
