Welcome to TripletsMum!

You’ve probably visited dozens of parenting websites since you become a mother, but how do you know they’re right for you? If you’ve found yourself surrounded with babies, triplets to be exact, then you’ve come to the right place.

Still not sure

Well, if it seems like the following list is compiled of snapshots from your new life, you definitely are.

Do you have three of everything set up around the house?

If you’ve answered no, then I’m sorry to say, this website isn’t quite for you. But having said that some information on this website might be useful for you.

Raising triplets is not an easy task, and you’re definitely going to find yourself looking for answers to the millions of questions that pop up along the way.  At TripletsMum we want to give you access to the guidance and resources that you’ve been so desperately searching for.

As a mother to triplets, I’ve been through those emotions and struggles that you’re dealing with. I know the importance of having readily available answers, and support, when it seems like caring for triplets is simply… impossible. However, I’m here to tell you that you can rock being a mom to triplets, and we’re here to help you every step of the way!

This terrifying, but thrilling, experience is going to be so rewarding. In the beginning, however, there will be mountains to climb and you’ll find yourself faced with unfathomable situations.
 
Let’s just talk about some of the potential struggles you’ll face in the first months of your incredible new life:

Breastfeeding woes

We all know that breastfeeding is best. They only tell us every other day, right? But when you’re feeding three mouths instead of one, that journey might become a battle.

  • Three mouths to feed, but only two breasts. Already outnumbered. 
  • Potential of limited milk supply
  • Need [or desire] to formula feed should breastfeeding not work out. (Oh no! Just kidding, we know that struggle all too well.)

When that inevitable guilt surfaces, shove it back down because you’re doing an amazing job, whether or not you decide to breastfeed. Feeding those three beautiful babies is your main priority, and they’re not going to care how you do it. 

High risk pregnancy

You’re carrying three humans; that alone is a high risk pregnancy. In all seriousness, however, pregnancy with triplets can lead to any of the following:

  • Preterm delivery 
  • Low birth weights
  • Preeclampsia
  • Placental abruption
  • Higher rates of infant loss
  • Cesarean

It’s likely that you will have an amazing, and healthy pregnancy, but it’s always best to be prepared for anything. After all, that’s what parenting is all about.

Separations

If you do deliver early, there is a potential that your little ones may need to spend some time in the NICU. It’s possible that they can be discharged at separate times, which makes this worrisome situation even more difficult.

You have to cope with hospital visits, traveling back and forth with the newborns that are released, and constantly adjusting routines once all three finally come together. 

You should know that you’re going to feel like your world has been turned upside down when you bring those three bundles of joy home. Remember that you can do this, and that one day you’ll look back and realize you did an incredible job.

Yes, you’re going to struggle with three times the sleep deprivation, and it’s important for you and your partner to communicate, and share responsibilities. If there was ever a time to become a true team, it’s now. You’re outnumbered as it is.

Clearly, life with triplets will take some adjustment, but you have the help you’ll need right here. We hope that we can help you find empowerment during this new chapter of your life, and give you the resources you need to become a natural at raising those three babies.
