Wendy - glad you got the stroller thing figured out. The bath seats sound like a great idea. I feel like we're in this in-between phase where they are really too big to use a bath seat and sit fine on their own, but I don't trust them to both "sit fine" in the tub while I bathe them. I've looked into some "bath bumper" kind of things so if they do fall while in the tub you don't have to worry about them hitting their heads on the edges, but the reviews seem mixed. Hmmph, still stuck in bathing them one-by-one Land!
I dunno... I'm tempted to just keep my double and single stroller for now. I can use the Bjorn as well. It's not like I'm going anywhere by myself, so I'll always have another person to push or carry.
I was thinking about this the other day... "how the h*** am I going to bathe three of them in a tub!?" ..I was thinking I'd do the same thing I did with my oldest dd, with a bathing seat that sits in the tub. maybe get a couple or three of them? they might all fit? doubtful? not sure.. but I cringe at the idea of falling over and smacking heads.
good news.. the strollers were picked up today.. phew. now I just need to wait for my refund.
for now I'll use our double and bjorn. I bought the ergo carrier thingy.. but I like the bjorn better.
Hey ladies! I check in too, but it's always so quiet! The "parenting multiples" should definitely just be combined with this board. Maybe we can just have a monthly "grad chat" thread each month. I come up with questions specific to multiples all the time... I'll try to post more here and see if you guys have any ideas.
Okay, and since I'm here, might as well ask this one... how have you guys handled bathing? Both (or all 3 ) at one time or one at a time? We are still taking turns with the girls and bathing them in a little tub that sits inside the big tub. I tried putting them both in the big tub at the same time and it was a disaster. I think Juliette was afraid of being in the big tub and I spent the whole time worrying about one of them falling over and cracking their head open because I didn't have enough hands. Not to mention they both hate having their hair rinsed so they throw themselves backward when I try to do this (only do a full hair wash once a week). Thoughts???
We should see about combining this board with the raising multiple board. Keep all our multiple moms here... ok, so that other board is pretty dead... but still. Might make sense... maybe.
I totally understand the distracted part.. omgggggggg.. I am constantly pulled away.
So my recent purchase was the BeBelove Triple stroller... ugh! I was so excited to get a side by side triple stroller that reclines. I saw all the bad reviews on the stroller, like it being badly made, etc.. but I hoped that mine would be a good one. ...nope.. no such luck. I wated the 5-10 business days, signed for it.. dh assembled it.. the breaks didnt work. ugh.. contacted them, they shipped another one... I wait another 5-10 business days.. sign, assemble.. box is busted.. wheels are bent, handlebar is ripped. lovely.. customer service again... returning it.
so now I'm waiting for them to pick up both strollers and refund my 400 bucks.
