Welcoming five babies into the world at one time is no mean feat. Especially if you’ve already got three youngsters.
For Perth parents Kim and Vaughn Tucci, the transition to parents of eight has had to be swift.
In addition to two young daughters and a son from Kim's previous relationship, the pair welcomed their quintuplets - Keith, Tiffany, Beatrix, Ali and Penelope - into the world in January. Since then they say, they've learned to operate with military precision and the tightest of schedules.
Kim took to Facebook to share how her life has changed and what a day in the Tucci household now looks like.
- Collectively, the babies go through 60 nappies in 24 hours, 16 outfits a day and a tin of formula every two days (that's 3.5 tins per week).
- The family follows a detailed chart, which help keeps the parents (and their army of helpers) stay on top of things. "The paperwork has times of feeds, feed volumes, when they've had a wet nappy etc, so this helps us not to miss anything- we haven't yet thank god," Kim wrote.
