Q: How much baby equipment will I need for triplets or more?

A: Expectant parents, as well as friends and family members planning a baby shower frequently ask this question. Some items must be bought for each infant like a crib and car seat, however some multiple birth parents find 2 swings, or a single changing table adequate.
