Prop-A-Baby


Being an engineer, it was only a matter of time before I found a mechanism for propping baby bottles or invented one myself. The gadget displayed here in the photo is called the "Milk Maid", and it must have been invented by a Dad with multiples. These things arrived in the mail today and at this point they are working pretty well. It allows Gabbie and Niklas to be propped while Lukas is fed by hand. Lukas is still pretty small and needs to be finagled a little bit. In other news, Niklas had his first appointment with our pediatrician today and he has gained over 1/2 lb. since he came home on Friday (6lb 15 oz). Having three babies is a little more work than two, it kind of feels like learning to juggle at gunpoint. We are, however, getting our system down and each day these guys are getting stronger and stronger. I also want to thank everyone at PTC (the company I work for) for throwing a surprise party for me today and loading us up with Target gift certificates. We have diapers and formula covered for a while now.

No, actually our babies are still small but with big appetites!

This is awesome - a great way to feed the babies AND Jason doesn't run the risk of going to jail!

Where did you get those bottle holders? I think we could use some also. The babies look great!
