It's an exciting but scary prospect bringing home your triplets or more. Whether you bring all your babies home at the same time or have one or more left in hospital, our neonatal guide has some useful information to help prepare for this. In this section, we've put together information that might help you navigate the early days. It's important to accept help from family and friends and remember we're also here to support you at Twins Trust as well.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help and accept it. I was too proud initially and made it much harder than it needed to be.



Many parents find having a routine is invaluable in caring for more than one baby. A routine needs to be flexible and something that works for you and your family situation.

Feeding more than two babies

The most important thing to remember when you get home is not to put too much pressure on yourself.

Organisation tips

You and your family will come up with what works best for you to cope with the sleep deprivation and constant stream of feeds and nappies. It's important to remember that this period is very short and it does come to an end.

Getting out and about

Firstly, don’t set expectations too high. It's hard caring for three or more babies.  Take it in stages and don’t put too much pressure on yourself.


All babies are individual and as the triplets and quads start to get older you will notice their own personalities coming through. You will also start to notice that they might need different amounts of attention at different times.
