The Multi Dad - Paul Tremain 🤓  Pics: Real life dadding with multiple kids Captions: Sometimes for your entertainment. Dad to: Finn & twins, Nelly & Teddy. Husband to: @themultimama

Nope it's not yoghurt, it's in fact another one of Nelly & Teddy's preferred non toy toys ... The butter we use on their bums from @lovebooshop (which is great by the way) ...The obsession with the closing and opening of the lid is off the scale and becoming a MUST have distraction object to prevent the neighbours from calling 999 due to screaming babies when we change their nappy ... The situation is almost as drastic as the Brexit situation for us and we now have at least half a dozen empty tubs which act as 'stunt doubles' for the nappy change... Except.... This time the stunt double got mixed up for the real thing!!! 😄 #babygirl #nelly #nontoytoys

If you're threenager, fournager, fivenager or any other nager is anything like Finn, when the TV is on he is 200% in the action with only a finger to the ear or cheeky switch of channel enough to distract him from watching @pixarcars 3 for the 19th time!!! Thank you for all the kind messages we have received wishing Finn luck at school, amazing support and v kind - so far so good... He has only done small settle sessions which are a few hours at a time. Tomorrow he does a half day so that's the next big hurdle for him but we are so proud, impressed and relieved at the way he has handled the jump so far... He has a thirst to learn and I think him doing 5 full days at school is undoubtedly going to help @themultimama during the days with the twins and give my hard working parents who are often behind the scenes a few hours off (maybe 😄) ... I think they should set up Insta profiles myself documenting the life of a multinanny & grandad ... 🤓🤓 #fatherandson #finn #myson #daddy #thankyou

An afternoon at the beach with 14 month old twins and 4 year old consists of:

1- Repeatedy having your sunglasses ripped off your face - why? Terrible game.
2- Bringing enough sand home in the buggy to set up a private beach for hire in the garden
3 - All three children appearing to think sand is a 'snack' and after consecutive face plants, realising you can never have enough wet wipes on board!
4 - Realising that the price of ice cream is rising faster than interest rates
5 - And then being presented with the cold reality that in fact what they really want is the JUST the flake and the ice cream is merely just face paint ... Anyway, had a lovely afternoon 🤓

What is your babies favourite non toy toy? Cereal box? Washing machine? Squash bottle? .... The twinnies are all over non toy toys like a mouse around a cheese board! At least this makes Christmas gifting nice and easy.... just keep it domestic!!! 20 items each from the £ shop sound good? With them both standing now, walking feels imminent so perhaps we will swiftly move into the danger zone of domestic toiletries and aerosols next... #twins #nontoytoys #babies

Yep... today is that day... Finn goes to big school....it just doesn't seem possible ...but he has more lines than Alexa and I'm confident he will do and mix well.... he told me last night he was a 'little nervous' which had me worrying for him last night but he had a good sleep and is full of beans so far this morning, even demanding extra toast which is very rare. Leaving for work today was the hardest it's been since returning from paternity with both sets of births, firstly of course because I was worried for the Multibruv and secondly both Nelly and Teddy decided on one of the more pressured mornings of the year to both have a dual poo explosion as I was about to leave the house ... You couldn't script it 🤓 good luck Finn bear, @themultimama and I are so proud of you!! 👍 #firstdayatschool #finn #bigbrother #myson

Question: Have you noticed that your kids sleep better after being on the swings? Never thought about it? ... no me neither.... but I am hoping I am on to something here as my kids love the swings and @themultimama and I love sleep....So when I read that children that go on the swings regularly sleep well or better because the motion helps balance activity in the brain (yep it's a thing apparently)....I thought, they need swinging in their routine as much as milk 🤓... luckily, my parents have just moved house and kindly installed swings for them so I am expecting a full nights sleep from now on .... I'll let you know how it goes ... Try it and let me know what you think!? We could be on the verge on something huge here...but if we solve the thing us parents love whinging most about... What will we talk about?! 😜🤓 #mykids #sleep #swings #3kids

With twins, a 4-year-old and a dad who always misses his mouth when eating, it's fair to say the washing can get on top of us sometimes.....🤓 And whilst our newest addition to Tremain Towers launderette @neutral.skin doesn't load and switch on the machine on for you, it's one less thing we have had to worry about in terms of our little ones and their sensitive skin. The twinnies suffered hugely with Eczema in their first few months with various trips back and forth to the doctor - we could never quite be sure what it was but eliminating products with perfumes and colourants were just some of the watch outs on the list. Neutral 0% is exactly this ..0% perfume and 0% colourants; hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested; receiving the Allergy UK Seal of Approval ... We have been using this around a month now and our customers at Tremain Towers Laundrette seem happy, so I'm happy!! If you do want to try for yourself, it's available at Sainsbury's; Ocado and Amazon....but for now, I have washing to hang out :-) #ad

The twinnies weren't too happy about my request to run an errand for some beers and even less impressed when I asked if it was chilled to my usual preferred temperature of -3!! 😆 Despite their stony 'where is my dinner' faces @themultimama and I have noticed over the last week or so how the twins are becoming more 'manageable' (please note, the word 'easy' isn't associated with this post) and by this I mean a combination of things, the nappies need changing less, they can play together for longer before one shuts another one's head in the fireplace and if the schedule slips for dinner, bath or a milk feed by 10 minutes they aren't letting the house 4 doors down know about it... this has meant we actually now stop more to enjoy and soak up those special twin bonding moments which is great...so, I guess you could say they are more manageable, flexible and more reasonable... Like a good employee!! 😄... Which is exactly why I hired them for the beer run! ... But... If your a parent who is a few months behind us and having a 'challenging' time.....shit, it's tough I know ... Stay positive ... The batteries for the torch will arrive soon and the light will shine!! 👍👍#twins -

The twins are 14 months today......wow, time flies...when.....your.... 🤓....anyway, to break it down .... that's 425.8 days of 'having your hands full mate'... Or the equivalent of a daily tough mudder ... Bloody tough when your in it, but after each day you sit back with such satisfaction of how good it was, wasn't or how satisfying finishing was 😁...Just before this picture was taken @themultimama and I were chatting about the fact Nelly wide eyes should be standing more by now and subsequently starting to walk soonish for which she has shown very little interest in to date.... 30 seconds later, and like a scene from a David Attenborough programme... in slow motion, she hauls herself up from laying in a pool of water and delivers the biggest grin ever! It was a real tough mudder finishing line moment for us 🤓...V cute and hopefully following a fanfare of clapping she will be encouraged to do more ...No issues with Ted, he is showing signs that Olympic diving could be for him ... Turn your back and he is on the edge of the bath, head first fearless!! Love watching their differences in development and seeing the bond they share, it's such a fun age now #bathtime -

Does anybody else's babies make this noise at bedtime or should we be worried? Or maybe Nelly is showing early signs of an aspiring career in dentistry? V cute moment to end our little break anyway #babygirl -

Final day at @centerparcsuk today and we haven't wasted a minute...football, pottery painting, cycling and the messiest lunch ever in @leonrestaurants followed by the longest session of swimming in which Nelly looks like she has had a glass too many and Ted is still at the happy stage and just a glass away from that tipping point 😄 ....they take a few minutes to warm up in the water but a twin float and a tracking device for the Multibruv (we wish) just about ensured everyone got out in and out safely.. plus the lifeguards are seriously 'on you' like you're known trouble in a nightclub keeping any double or triple trouble in order 😆 In summary, great adventures, great memories and great family fun... Highly recommended, I would say this park is particularly good if you aren't too fussed about cycling as it's all quite walkable with the buggies to restaurants etc... 👍...next challenge, packing up the lodge, returning 50 bikes and loading the car all before 10am... 🙄 #familyholidays -

Poor @themultimama woke up with the sickness bug this morning which has wiped her out for most of the day but 100% of the morning and still has bearly eaten... Naturally this has resulted in some EXTREME multidadding conditions...not ideal at home, let alone on holiday.... What a hero!? 😜🤓 ... But wow, bloody hell... The outnumbered parenting model is very overated and needs re-inventing but shows how much we need her and how brilliant she is!! Luckily, once we actually managed to get them out of their PJs (odd PJs at that due to overhydration 😄) the playground, swings and cycling wore the twins out enough for them to sleep really well in the day which freed me up to give the multibruv some fun in the form of crazy golf and swimming although he seemed to develop hearing difficulties everytime his name was mentioned unless in the same sentence as something sugar based... Sound familiar? Anyone got any new classic parenting lines to make him stop and listen!? 😄 #toughday #bribes
