Hi, I have been reading your blog for a while, but I have never commented before. First of all, I just want to say that you are doing an amazing job with parenting triplets plus 1. (My aunt and uncle have a six year old and four year old triplets, so I kind of know what it's like!) Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that the best rain cover for the snap and go would actually be car seat rain covers. (Babies R Us has 3 different ones; Especially for baby, Graco and Baby Brella are the brands.) Another product that may help you when you decide to try solids is this: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2908664It may make feeding easier since it eliminates the need for a bowl. (It's also available at BRU. I don't know if they sell it elsewhere, but I work at BRU, so I know they have it.)Sorry for the novel of a comment, I just thought I would give you a heads up on these products.


If it makes you feel better about skipping rice cereal, the naturopathic pediatrician that we take our 5 month old son to says not to introduce grains of any kind until 9 months. It is something about the immature digestive system not being able to really handle them until then. Like you said, there's no reason medically that you need to, an it's less mess not to! I'm so impressed by your ability and will to breastfeed all three babies. I'm also not looking forward to introducing solids next month, only because I've recently gotten a whiff of the odor that solid-food diapers take on! Yuck!

great job taking all of them to appts by yourself! I haven't even attempted it and don't think I will unless I have to. You're a superwoman! The babies are super cute!!!


Happy 6 months, babies!!I was so freaked out about starting Ruby on 'REAL FOOD'. We skipped rice & went right to oatmeal, which my doctor thought would help her bowel problems. It did help - and it helped her put on weight finally, too.But I do understand the babies are at 4 months, adjusted. Do what you're comfortable with - we started very, very slowly with solids. And we're still going slowly.You're an amazing mom!!


I am intrigued by your worries about rice cereal. Why don't you like it?I bought the book, Super Baby Food and I really like it. I started Bo on the Earth Grains organic, whole-grain rice cereal and he seems to be tolerating it really well. I did that for 10 days at supper only and this morning, started mashed banana with a little breastmilk at breakfast. After 5 days we will start avocado and then our next food will be sweet potato. I don't know when you have time to read, but if you have a chance, Super Baby Food is a good read! I have no advice for feeding all three of them!! That is going to be hard, but you're a miracle woman so I know you will find a way to do it and do it well!!


they are so beautiful, and i love those onesies!solid foods terrify me too. i want to wait as loooong as humanly possible. scary! thank goodness that's a long way off for us.


You are BRAVE - I won't even take two to the doc by myself (though I do take them to Target alone... go figure... LOL) The babies look great, so glad they're doing well. And I'm with you on the food - I am dreading it.

Your doc is right, 6 singletons is definitely easier (OK, I have a set of twins, but still a total of 6). With my twins, I fed both with the same spoon & it really wasn't bad... In my experience, it's when you start letting them feed themselves that it gets really messy.Your kids are adorable :-)


Gorgeous. I know I say this nearly every time I stop by, but I am in such awe of your mothering skills and your beautiful babes.


Where can I get six singletons? I'm just wondering. B/C I'd like to take a stab at seeing how much easier it might be...


wow, i am in such awe that you are still mostly breastfeeding all three! very inspiring since i only have one. you get extra-special mom status.


You know you don't HAVe to start solid food until you and they are ready, right? That would be six months adjusted at a minimum, no reason to start now unless they are super hungry, desperate to eat what you're eating etc. Strong advice for preemies is to wait til they are adjusted six months as their gut may not be ready until then. If they are thriving, you can wait. Why start now if it's more than you can handle? Your milk/formula are much more calorie dense than any solids you can give them.


MOST sells triplet-stroller rain and bug covers on-line.I freaked out about solids and waited until the kids were six months' adjusted, too.There's nothing saying you couldn't just slip Abby a piece of banana or avocado randomly, to see what happens.Ruth Yaron's Super Baby Food has some nice food-intro charts and lots of recipes, many of which will make you think your kids are not nearly as crunchy-granola as they could be.Congratulations on reaching six months! Woot-woot-woot!
