Why Am I Complaining?

This morning I received this news article from BBC News: US Women Gives Birth To Octuplets, I am not even sure how to process this ... eight babies all at once and I have been worried about a newborn with my one year old and three year old!

Then I noticed this:
"...the mother is planning to breast feed them all..."
WOW, and again I was worried about tandem nursing my two.

My thoughts go out to this family! It will be busy!

How can it even be possible!

That's horrific in my mind, lol.

As for the BFing, it's not even possible. They all need individual calories and nutrients on, as we all know, a demanding schedule. I hope it's not some stupid media stunt - it's happened before. Do it for money.

Anyway, this hopefully makes you feel better about the new one ariving soon. lol

ThisGrandma sure doubts that it will be possible at all to feed 8 !! But 2 is workable - though quite a challenge when they are different ages. I did hear a talk by a pediatrician who was BFing a new baby and a 3 year old.
