Can't say I have any tips, I've never even considered something like that. I don't know how I'd be able to deal with the jealousy or feeling left out. I think being polyamorous requires a certain level of self-confidence and a "live and let live" attitude that I haven't reached lol. But I'm glad you're happy about it and I wish you three the best!

Communication and honesty is key. It is not easy, you have to work through everything that comes on your path. There is noone who can give you guidelines, since every relation is unique.
Sometimes schedules can help to give a clear outline, but it usually works best when things happen more organically.

As a polyamorous person I think communcation and honesty are the most important part. Jealously can be managed just as another emotion, don't worry about it. If you have any specific questions/doubts just about it, since the argument is really vast I didn't want to write a papyrus here :P

In the meantime I can suggest you two books about non-monogamous ethical relationship:
The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton, Janet Hardy
More than Two by Eve Rickert, Franklin Veaux.
