Three of the Houston-ara sextuplets born at Texas Children’s Hospital are breathing on their own, without the support of equipment or machines. Reports indicate that the three babies that are breathing on their own are: Little Benjamin, Caroline, and Andrew.

With the babies being able to breathe on their own, they are now able to bottle feed. The sextuplets were born April 23, 2012. Siblings Levi, Allison and Leah are still receiving breathing assistance from respirators. One hospital spokesperson said that all six babies are getting stronger and they could go home as early as June. On April 23, Lauren Perkins of Pearland delivered three girls and three boys. The babies have been dubbed the “Perkins Pack”.View the Perkins Sextuplets.
