What Works in Real Life
Advice from Kate Gosselin, left, of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8:
- "The most difficult part of having multiples is that we don't know what having one baby is like! We have never been able to sit and enjoy just one baby."
Advice from the Plymouth/Canton Mothers of Multiples Group in Canton, Michigan:
- "You need a good stroller -- (we used the Graco Duo Glider LXI) -- that you can fold with one hand," notes Debra Ramsey, mom of Jason and Paige. "Also, hug your spouse once a day because he's tired too."
- "We don't dress our identical twins the same," says Pam Gharaibeh, mom of Lessa and Ivy. "We want them to develop their own personalities. For the first six months, I put different nail polish on their toes."
- "We never worried that one baby's crying would wake up the other -- if one started and woke up the other, we let them figure it out on their own," notes Colleen Myers, mom of Emma and Madison.
