WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The Polish city of Krakow is renting a two-bedroom apartment for the parents of recently born sextuplets so they can stay close to the hospitalized babies.

The four girls and two boys, believed to be Poland’s first ever sextuplets, were born May 20, in the pregnancy’s 29th week, through cesarean section at Krakow’s University Hospital. They have been placed in incubators and are expected to remain hospitalized for some three months.

The move by the city will save the parents and their 2½-year-old son hours of daily commuting from their home in Tylmanowa, in the south of the country.

The babies, Filip,Tymon, Zosia, Kaja, Malwina and Nela, were also given layettes bearing the city’s symbols.
