Bottle propping and nipple nipping
Rose has been experimenting with ways of feeding the babies faster. After several feedings which took more than an hour to complete, we decided that something needed to be done. After consultations with "Triplet Kelly," we have speed up the feedings drastically. First, we are using receiving blankets to prop the bottles so that all three babies can be fed at once by one person. Second, we are experimenting with different bottle nipples. Rose bought some fast-flow nipples, and I performed delicate surgery on our slow flow nipples, i.e. I used a pair of scissors to widen the openings. This has cut feeding times nearly in half and we are getting better all the time. THANK YOU KELLY!
