I have triplets who are 9 months old. I joined my local Multiple Birth Club in Australia and also as part of that their is a Higher Order Multiple (HOM's) Group of Australia which is for people with triplets or more. My local club via the HOM's group organised donations from a few fabulous companies. Unfortunately there are ot many but anything is a help. I am not sure what they do in NZ but I received 2 boxes of Huggies Nappies, 6 months supply of Heinz baby food, box of Johnson and Johnson creams/baby wash etc and the most FABULOUS donation is from Wyeth pharmaceuticals who make S26 formula. All I need from them is a letter from my Dr when I run out of formula and they keep sending boxes more. So far this has saved us alot of money. You may want to contact this club for your friend and make some enquiries. I was also able to hire a breast pump through my local club which was heaps cheaper than through a chemist.
If your friend can get Internet access she will have access to www.multiplebirthparents.com which is a great site for people expecting multiples or who are the parents of multiples. This site can provide you with lots of useful info/tips/friendship and a common understanding of what you are experiencing.
If you or your friend have any questions etc please feel free to send me a personal message. I am more than happy to help.
Wish your friend all the best of luck. Let her know that she is not alone as their is a big wide world of multiple parents out there, some who have even been in the same difficult situation.
Take Care and what a good friend you are
