Chad Kempel has become an internet celebrity with his creative hacks and imaginative parenting skills impressing his viewers. The father of seven shares his inventions on his YouTube channel under ‘Quint Hacks.’
For those who have taken care of children, every step of the way can be a panic-inducing moment. Every day is a challenging adventure for a parent with a newborn.
So, what happens when you’re not only raising one baby but five at the same time? Creativity sparks. When Chad and Amy Kempel found out that they would have quintuplets, they already had two girls at home.
Chad says it looked like the Fourth of July with all the flickering heartbeats in the first ultrasound. What should have been a happy moment for the couple was tinged with a bit of terror.
The Kempel’s had previously had multiple miscarriages before having the quintuplets. Ultimately the five babies arrived home safely, and the couple had to devise a plan to take care of their seven children. At this point, Chad thought about how he could help his wife while he wasn’t there, so he devised ways to streamline the feeding to the diaper changing process.
The couple’s interview has racked up over nine million views and 73 thousand likes, as viewers on the platform have flooded the Kempels with support and admiration. Many have given their respect not only to Chad but to Amy as well.
One wrote: “This is a couple who truly is grateful to have every single one of their children and make the most out of it.” Chad, alongside his wife, indicates that having all the kids was terrifying at first, but having them there happy and healthy has been a fantastic process.
