We are experiencing an explosion in multiple births. In 1996, more than 6,000 babies were born in multiple sets -- triplets, quadruplets or even larger groups -- and more than 100,000 babies were born twins.
As women wait longer to have babies and fertility treatments become more accessible, don't expect those numbers to be going down.
CBS This Morning Health Correspondent Emily Senay, who gave birth to twin girls this year, reports on some new products designed for those with more than one baby.
