Documentary "Meet the multiples" on tonight @ 9pm BBC3

Meet the multiples on BBC3, 26 April @ 9pm


Bringing up one baby is a great experience for many parents, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. There's the through-the-night feeds, nappy changing, tantrums, not to mention the cost. One baby can set mum and dad back an average of 10,000 pounds in the first year. Now imagine that multiplied when you're bringing up twins, triplets, quadruplets and more. It's happening more and more in Britain, with a large increase in the number of multiples born in the last ten years.

In this eye opening programme, we are on the frontline of parenthood and meet the parents bringing up multiples. We meet young parents to triplets and see their first few weeks as they bring their babies home. We then fast forward to meet other parents further down the line - nine-months triplets, 21-month quadruplets and 5-year-old triplets and twins - to find out what it's really like to raise a big brood. Strict regimes, juggernaut babies, choruses of tantrums - this is parenting at its most extreme.

This programme made me laugh and it also made me feel so much better. A few months back if I'd seen that mum giving her five year old a dummy and her kids plates of chips I might have been a bit judgemental. AFter coping with two for the last 14 weeks I now think that woman is a Saint.

I loved the programme and made me laugh so much, It has most certainly not put me off the idea of having twins etc in fact I think that they coped amazingly well and loved the family of quadruplets and also the family with twins then triplets they really shone in the programme and were fantastic parents. I loved he little boy who was saying "we are we are tricklets.......end of" and also the little girl quadruplet that kept wandering away, so real life, me and DB were in fits x I understand how much work multiples would be but how amazing too x

DH and I have just watched this on iplayer...I am NEVER going to complain that my two are hard work again :snigger:

Seriously, I just don't know how they did it. I thought they were amazing!

Not tempted in any way to extend our family though. 2 babies and a cat are plenty enough!!

I saw some of it as stumbled upon it by chance, I was totally hooked though! I have no idea how they coped with that many kids at one time, amazing!

After 5 years of endo surgery, clomid, 2 x MM/C, 2 x ICSI cycles and 1 PGD cycle,
beautiful twin girls born 8th Feb 2010, we are so grateful
