This is going to sound easy. Sometimes it's not (AHHHH! THREE babies AT THE SAME FRICKING TIME?!!! AHHHHH!!!), but considering the chaos that I anticipated, life is very, very good. I should also say that when I was a first time mama with dd, I was depressed, exhausted, and generally not doing so well with it all. I struggled terribly the first time, so I'm pretty excited that it could go this well the second time -- and with three! It's 2:45 a.m., I just woke up after 6 hours of straight sleep and am taking over for my husband (who sleeps until 8:30 a.m., getting his 6 hours). I'm pumping milk now while babies are sleeping. They're still waking every 3 hours at night to eat, but they're pretty much on the same schedule as each other. We have "hands-free" bottles to feed them so eating takes about 20 minutes for all three -- they lie and eat and look into my eyes, stopping to smile and coo, so I try not to worry too much about lost intimacy with not breastfeeding (all three breastfeed as well for snacks and comfort in between meals -- and to help me up my supply). They also get formula (about 50-50). They have their first awake period around 6 a.m. (I doze and sleep until then, usually alternating a baby to sleep with, sneaking in another hour or two of sleep to add to my 6) then we have tummy time and take turns chatting with mom one-on-one. Then it's feeding, napping, playing the rest of the day. The only time it really feels tricky is changing diapers and clothes when you just get done with one poopy blow-out and there're two more right away. From 3 - 5 p.m., we get a woman from the municipality (Sweden is generous with support for families that need it) come and help wash baby bottles, do light cleaning, food shop, fold laundry, and hang out with the babies while I go get my daughter from daycare. She can also make dinner if needed, but I love to cook, so I plan and look forward to that most days. It's gone amazingly well so far. I attribute it to having big healthy babies at birth (just luck, and a little care with my 4000-calorie-a-day diet while pregnant), living in a country which understands true family values and supports that, having a partner who takes full responsibility and can take care of three babies plus little girl by himself in a way that I can sleep completely relaxed, and having lucked out with no colicky babies. Also, I have very low expectations for what to get done. Sometimes we get a walk, usually not. Babies get a bath once a week (though we wash them under the sink when they poo, and wipe warm cloths around necks and faces). We also get help from my husbands awesome parents. Thanks for asking, Kindermama, it was fun to write down! Now it's 3 a.m., time to scoop up one lucky baby and hit the sack for a little bit.
