I know a woman who just found out she's carrying quads. I'd love to be able to direct her here for advice/support if there are other quad moms lurking around. Or if anyone knows of any web sites or anything, that would be great!

Hi, I can't recall if anyone here has quads, but there's a Yahoo AP multiples group that might. Also, some major metropolitan areas have LLL groups for moms of multiples, which might be a great support to her if she's interested in BF'ing.

If she's AP or wanting to be direct her to apmultiple yahoo group. Someone there can probably help with more specific information.

Definitely read Barbara Luke's book - what to eat when expecting twins, triplets or quads.

Most provincial/state parents of multiples organizations have a Triplets, Quads and Quints offshoot or extra support group b/c the experience of triplets etc far outstrips the experience of twins. I have a girlfriend w identical triplet girls - it amazes me what she goes through every day and they are SEVEN now. She nursed and co-slept w them all and got them to 34 weeks - amazing.

Good luck to your friend

A woman I know has quads. I sent her this book http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...60542683&itm=1
It has so much wonderful advice on pregnancy nutrition, activity, etc. She managed to get her quads all over 3lbs and they are doing wonderfully. Good luck to your friend!!

I used it with my twins also. Love the book
