When One Plus One Equals Four (or More!): The Joys and Challenges of Parenting Multiples
We know that even one new baby – let alone two or three! – can redefine life as we knew it. And, no matter how strong we think we are, we all need help and support during such a major life transition. What do we do when two hungry babies are crying at once? How will we ever get enough sleep? How can we avoid drowning in dirty dishes and laundry? And how can my partner and I find time for our own relationship? Carey Lindeman and Tory Kielas-Jensen of Welcome Baby Care have been providing help, support and information to new parents for years, with a special emphasis on parents of multiples and/or premature infants. As you will hear in their discussion with Marti & Erin, Carey & Tory bring a deep understanding of the challenges parents face and the lasting benefits of help during those first weeks and months of babies’ lives.
Are there multiples in your family or among your circle of friends? In what ways are the challenges of those parents the same as or different from the challenges of parents of singles?
