HOUSTON – Three of the 3-weeks-old sextuplets born at Texas Children’s Hospital have reached a milestone, hospital officials said on Thursday.

Little Benjamin, Caroline, and Andrew are breathing all on their own.

That means they can be fed by bottle.

Their brother Levi and sisters Allison and Leah still need the help of respirators.

The hospital said all six are getting stronger everyday and could go home next month.
