If you asked me what I thought about being the mother of identical triplet newborns, I'd probably drop to my knees thanking my lucky stars I only had one baby at a time, because one was hard enough, thank you very much. I can't quite imagine the logistical difficulties of dealing with three babies -- the feedings! The diaper changes! The sleep … or presumably, the utter lack thereof!
But here's something I've never really taken into consideration: if you have identical same-sex babies, how do you tell them apart? That's exactly the challenge faced by a St. Louis, Missouri couple with newborn triplet daughters. They were all born prematurely, and while they remain in the hospital until they can gain a little more weight, Laura and Brad Partridge say they can't tell one baby from another.
