With three new mouths to feed, Rachel Pyman and Robert Woolley from Great Cornard certainly have their hands full.

So Sudbury’s Sainsbury’s supermarket decided to help the parents of 10-week-old triplets Isaac, Arthur and Noah with a free delivery of baby essentials to their Nursery Road home.

Laden with bags of nappies, creams and wipes, staff turned up on the couple’s doorstep last Tuesday.

“We just wanted to do what we could,” said Kayleigh Gray (pictured, left) from the store.

“The amount of products you need with a baby can be quite staggering and to need three sets of everything must be a daunting thought.

“Hopefully we have managed to help them out a bit and they were very grateful.”

The triplets were born eight weeks early in February and were strong enough to come home last month.

They had been due to arrive on April 19 – Rachel’s birthday.

Rachel, 26, said the boys were settling in well at home and both herself and partner Robert, who works at Delphi Diesel Systems in Sudbury, were adapting to life as parents of triplets.
