Triple trouble bringing bliss

DESPITE the chorus of cries, Chenoa Trama is blissfully happy.

Eleven weeks after the drug-free natural birth of her triplets, the Yandina Creek mother-of-five said she had learnt to "go with it" and was basking in the beauty of motherhood.

"It's been pretty hectic but not as hard as I thought it was going to be, but in saying that there are definitely hard moments throughout the day," she said.

"But they are very good sleepers. Dylan and Ailah are sleeping through the night and little Isaac still wakes up for a feed, but that's okay as it's easier to get up for one than it is for three.

"If you've got a sleeping mummy then everything's bearable."

Mrs Trama's day begins at 5am when the bubs wake for a feed.

"It takes about an hour to feed all three and then I change their bums and they pretty much want to go back to sleep instantly," she said.

Isaac, Dylan and Ailah wake again about 9.30am for a feed, change of nappies and some play time.

"They're starting to like being on the play mats. Ailah is reaching out and grabbing toys," she said.

"Then back to sleep and they wake anywhere between 2.30pm and 3pm.

"I do the same thing again about 5pm, then they're back down about 10pm.

"I had my first 'I don't want to do this anymore' day yesterday, but that's okay."

With plenty of dirty bottoms, it's no surprise Mrs Trama goes through lots of nappies.

"I use cloth nappies and I wash about 30 nappies every second day, but I use disposables at night because it's much easier," she said.
