Congratulations! Those are some beautiful kiddos. They look HUGE for 34 weekers, and triplets too! I second the motion to take it easy and keep the water coming. I used to keep a case of it by the sofa. I never moved from there the first month, and it was easy to monitor consumption by seeing how many bottles I had finished.

Mama to 4 darlings. A ('03), O and K ('06), A ('09), and wife to M since 2002.

Fantastic! Congratulations.

Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".

My kids never had troubl accepting both breast and bottle, so I just wish I had pumped until they were a bit stronger. I think we would have been more successful at bfing. Just my 2 cents.
I am on TC, and actually, I emailed you about CD a while ago. We're not using them now, but we'll try some prefolds and covers when they get a little bigger.

Thanks for the insight on BF/pumping, also. I have been feeling guilty because I've only put one to the breast once a day, and I know I need to be doing that more both to help my supply issues and for practice for them, but they've just been home a few days and we're still trying to find a good routine. I have tried to be kind to myself and realize I'm giving them a gift, even if we have to supplement so much as well.

Chantel - I'm looking forward to the help with meals. Thank you again!
