Interview with a Working Triplet Mom

Triplet mom, Meri Raffetto, is my inspiration. Since her babies’ conception (now 2 years old), she’s published 3 books. Her third book, The Mediterranean Diet Cookbook for Dummies┬«, just hit the shelves. The book launch party is Nov. 30th, in San Diego. I interviewed Meri to find out how she takes care of triplets while working from home. ME: When did you start and finish your first book, Glycemic Index Diet for Dummies? MERI: I started right after I got pregnant with the triplets, and finished before they were born. It was rough, as I was on bedrest for the…

Most babies do so by a max of 6 months, which gives her a week to go. The boys roll constantly,…

Milestones this week: All babies eat pureed fruit once a day, and rice cereal once a day. William is our best eater and sleeper, with the easiest disposition. Everyone sleeps 10 hours a night. I’m almost human again. In my humble opinion, babies (like adults), do better on a schedule. Sleeping and waking at the same time everyday takes discipline, as does eating at least 3 meals a day (and not skipping breakfast). Most agree that following a routine leads to better functioning. Common sense and logic would expect the same for babies (but, I could be wrong). Also, the…
