#1 The blog:
Their blog was started as a site for the anthology Multiples Illuminated: A Collection of Stories and Advice From Parents With Twins, Triplets and More.
It features essays from 20 talented writers and parents of multiples. These essays tell stories of struggles with infertility, the journey with IVF and surrogacy, the struggles and triumphs of pregnancy, labor and delivery, the trials and tribulations in the NICU, and the amazing first years with multiples. Read more about their anthology here!
“Babies need a plethora of things in the first year, and having to buy two or three or more of cribs, car seats, high chairs, bouncy seats, and a double or triple the number of diapers, wet wipes, formula, and special items like triple strollers and double breastfeeding pillows, can take a toll on our bank accounts. Which is why this handy list of freebies, discounts, promotions and multiples programs will be a lifesaver for you and your family! Multiples Illuminated has done all the homework for you!”
with Briton Underwood, better known as Punk Rock Papa, who is “a parent above all else. When he gets sick of being at his kids’ beck and call, he likes to escape to social media or his website. He writes about any and everything he wants, but mainly about his twin boys or his newest addition—another boy. He also would like the world to know he has a beautiful wife because the couch isn’t that comfy.”
