Tonight while putting my kids to sleep (read: I had fallen asleep, too ) DH took a call from a very very very stressed friend of ours, who put his wife on the speakerphone ... they were going crazy putting their ?7mo? triplets to sleep every night, apparently this is going on for several weeks now.
Have a brief thread about them, apparently the same sleep thing happening, and they tried the Ferber CIO method and it was totally unacceptable to them, so now called us for ... help.
So I'm asleep, and DH was talking to the DH about putting the babies to sleep ... and didn't know what to say.
Is it so different to AP/gently parent multiples to sleep when they're having a hard time? Am guessing that they're teething, one or two or all three, I don't know ... but this is tough.
If I would've spoken to them, not sure what I'd've said. DH tells me they're pacing the apartment with them each night and just worn out. What else to do? Put one in a carrier/sling (not sure what she uses) and the others in the stroller and walk them around the block 100 times?
Am sure she's nursing, but don't know what the situation is, not knowing how that can work with triplets, or how to get three to sleep nursing ... oy.
Am now under the impression that she's totally computer illiterate, so can't send her here.
Any advice on nighttime parenting multiples ... would be very very very grateful to take.
