Seven years ago, Gina gave birth to quintuplets. Gina tells Peter that keeping life as simple and organized as possible was her saving grace while caring for five newborns.

Gina shares tips she says can help parents get through the first few weeks with one—or many—newborns!

  • Don't splurge on big-ticket baby items right away—buy them as you need them.
  • Put the baby on a schedule. Keep a chart of when you feed them, change them and put them down for a nap.
  • Don't pick the baby up every time he or she makes a noise. Gina says that this practice helps babies learn how to self-soothe.
  • Only give the baby a nighttime feeding if they wake up, otherwise Gina says the baby will not learn to sleep through the night.
