Friend going to have 3 under 2 😳

A friend of mine is expecting her THIRD boy in the Spring. She already has two twin boys - and will have 3 under the age of 2 on her hands. A group of us are trying to find the best way to help her other than a meal train. We are trying to get creative. We all have children that are young so keep that in mind. Thank you!

    Triple stroller? Baby wearing items? A subscription to huggies?

    If she's in an area with a food or grocery delivery service I've found a gift certificate to one of those services can be super helpful.

    I have 2.5 month old twins and a 2.5 year old. All boys. My friends got me a Shipt subscription which has been great and honestly an Instacart one would be great too! Nice to not need to worry about going out for groceries or personal items especially now that it’s cold out. Shipt is $50 if one of your friends already has it (if no one does let me know and I can get you my code) and Instacart is now $100. Depends on where she likes to shop which one to get 🙂

    How about taking turns spending an afternoon with her, watching the kiddies while she runs errands, goes to the doctor,or just takes a shower?? If you are a Mom traveling with lots to do, you cover more ground if you go without children in tow! One afternoon a week is just so welcome!!

    Taking one or both of the older ones it will help. My neighbor had twins after having 2 older kids, every time I go to the park with my twins I swing by and offer to take the older ones. Sometimes even an hour of relief helps. Another thing can be to offer to get stuff when going to Costco or other stores for yourself. Most importantly, don't call just show up and help (as long as your friend is ok with that)... With that many little ones there's no time to answer the phone or to even ask for help. And btw be aware of the high risk for post partum depression with multiples.

    I was in the same boat last year I would have loved if someone took our older daughter on a play dates so we would get some sleep.
