Mum Gave Birth QUintuplets After One Year Share Her ” ᴄʜᴀᴏs” Life
Super mum Megan Hulen had two boys when she decided to try for another baby – only to end up with quintuplets who are as “chaotic” as they are “brilliant”
“I was so sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ because the babies were all born within four minutes of each other. It was ʙᴏᴏᴍ ʙᴏᴏᴍ ʙᴏᴏᴍ and all the babies were out.The babies were all born by 2:20am with Allison weighing 3 pounds 5.6 ounces; Adam 4 pounds 0.2 ounces; Madison 3 pounds 6 ounces; Emma 3 pounds 10.9 ounces; and Chloe 3 pounds 3.5 ounces
Megan, from Minot, North Dakota, told Fabulous: “It‘s been a learning experience. With every new milestone we have felt like we have had to relearn how to do things with them. But some great things they are doing now is holding their own bottles, crawling, furniture cruising and sleeping through the night. Our first year has been very chaotic but still full of love for every baby and of course our big boys too. They have been brilliant.”
On a typical day, Megan gets up at 3am for the first morning feed. She nurses her babies again at 7am, before getting another half an hour kip. Megan homeschools her eldest son Jacob. She also has to keep track of medication for her son Matthew, who has ɴᴀɢᴇʀ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ. Next on her military-style schedule are more feeds and nappy changes. The parents log this information using an app so to ensure all kids are covered.
Megan said: “In between dealing with the quints I’m busy chasing my two-year-old and making sure my seven-year-old is getting his homework done. Every once in a while I will have time to vacuum the carpet or do a load of laundry.”
Now they have seven children, the parents hope to move to a bigger house in the future. They are also planning to buy a bigger car with nine seats so they can drive the entire family around at once.
