Super Dad Creates Survival Guide To Having Triplets Due To “Military Mission” Of Looking After His Miracle Girls

Alex Lewis, 34, from Essex, documents the highs and lows of the ‘military operation’ and reveals how he and his wife Charlotte, 32, still get ‘me time’.

Alex was left dumbfounded when he found out his Charlotte was expecting not one but three babies.

The couple had struggled to conceive for three years and after forking out £8,000 for IVF, the pair hoped their baby dream would come true.

But despite being told they were having triplets, doctors warned that they might not all survive.

And on April 6, Annabella Rose and Florence Violet – who were identical twins, and their sister, Lottie Bluebell, were born.

Dad of four, Alex, said: “Since having the triplets our lives have become a military operation, we have to feed and change all three every four hours.

“It’s hard work but I wouldn’t change it for the world, we know how incredibly lucky we have been to have had three healthy girls.

“We didn’t want to start buying anything for triplets because we were warned the whole way through that they might not all make it.

He’s hoping to give a dad’s guide on triplets by sharing their family pictures every day on Intasgram.

He said they still manage to have a coffee in Costa every week, visit the sea side, go shopping, go out for dinner as a family and have even taken the girls to Centre Parcs.

Alex said it has been amazing to show other parents that you don’t have to live at home when you have multiples and that trips out are possible.

The couple, who already have a son called Henry were over the moon when their three girls were born healthy at 33 weeks and six days.

Anabella Rose weighed 3lbs 5oz, Florence Violet, weighed 4lbs 7oz and Lottie Bluebell weighed 2lbs 14oz – and after three weeks they were all allowed home.

Alex added: “I was so overwhelmed when they all arrived, it made all the weeks of worry worth it.

Alex, who works in accounts, added: “I will post images just of me enjoying some ice cream or running with the dog while the girls are asleep.

“It’s important to show people the highs and lows, having triplets is relentless and Charlotte doesn’t have time to do anything during the day.

Alex hopes to continue updating his social media page every day to continue documenting his triplet’s lives.

He said they were lucky to have so many supportive friends and family who have either given away old clothes or high-chairs – which has helped massively with the cost of everything.

“It all adds up but we wouldn’t change anything for the world, there’s nowhere I’d rather be.”
