Meet the Triplet Brothers

Meet the Triplet Brothers

Say hello to the triplets. Edvin, Konrad and Gustav. I met them in Västerhaninge. The triplets were easy to spot, their grandmother took up half of the walkway with the wide baby carrier! The trio were born in February, seven weeks early, by Caesarean section. They have two older siblings. Edvin weighed 1200 grams when he was born. His brothers were a bit heavier, weighing in on 1900 grams. There are currently 25 families in Sweden with triplets. One of those families live nearby in Tyresö, so I guess the two families will help one another with this and that.

For the life of me, I could not work out what your topic was from the thumbnail. Those socked feet are so out-there.

I do not think I would like to carry, give birth to, and then raise triplets. Way hard! My hat goes off to them!!

Like Julie, I, too, cannot imagine the work of raising three sons all the same age. I hope the parents get lots of support from family and friends. I love that you know how many sets of triplets there are in your entire country!

They're so cute! I love those fleecy blankets. Must be a lot of work for the parents though. :)

Excellent! Cute little guys!

Good grief...as cute as they are, I would not want to be the mother. I doubt that the families of other triplets could be of much help because they'd be super busy raising their own. I do hope that these families get lots of support from others. Looks like this granny is helping!!

Adorable! They will never have to look for a friend to play with.

Oh my! I can't imagine trying to take care of three babies at once. Our son and his wife had twins and that was heck on earth!

Can you imagine these three when they reach the teen years! Yikes!
