 I vividly remember the moment I saw two little babies on the ultrasound screen, and we found out that we were expecting twins. So many emotions ran through my head–everything from pure joy to absolute terror.  Not that they weren’t wanted, but just that we had no idea what to do! We had waited such a long time for another baby, and so it was mostly on the joy side of things, but thinking about TWO babies at one time? There was so much to think about and plan for, and we started right away trying to figure out what we would need for these two beautiful baby girls that would soon join our family.  We learned so much over the next couple of years, through much trial and error, so when our SECOND set of twins was born, we felt much more comfortable with what was ahead.

We quickly discovered what our favorite products were, and what we considered to be “must-haves”, and those continued through both sets of twins.  I’m really grateful to the moms that shared their tips and favorites with me, so I’m passing mine on to you, in hopes that it will alleviate a little of the worry and overwhelming feeling, and you can focus on all that JOY!

TWIN MUST-HAVES

Baby Trend Universal Double Snap-N-Go Stroller Frame

Twin strollers can be very large, and very bulky, and I really wanted something that would be a little more compact–or at least as much as possible.  I absolutely love this stroller frame, and I used it with my favorite infant seat–the Chicco Keyfit 30. This is a universal stroller frame though, and will fit several different brands of car seats.  I LOVED it.  It folded down really flat, and it was super easy to open and close.  It also pushes well, fits through doorways, and was pretty easy to maneuver. I used this with both sets of twins…hands down a favorite!

  1. My twins are 26 years old now. It’s amazing how many great things they have come up with since my kids were little! Now I am planning a baby shower for a friend with preemie twins. Thanks for great ideas for her. My favorite toy (when the kids were toddlers) was a red Flexible Flyer teeter totter. 2 or 3 kids could rock on it at once. Everyone was happy at the same time!

  2. Hello my name is Kim I’m a mom of girl and boy twins my favorite thing to use was a twin stroller but the seats faced each other so my baby’s could always see each other and play I don’t see strollers like that anymore and that’s sad because it keeps the little ones occupied I use to call mine the twin Limo I’d say who wants to go in the limo and my baby’s would get so excited well now my twins are 30yrs old but we had so many fun times taking the limo to the park

  3. I love our Maclaren. It fits through standard doors and folds up really compact so it doesn’t take a ton of room in the trunk. My twins are two now and its probably been our most used baby item.
    I also second the Boppy. I tried one of the double nursing pillows with my twins and the thing is ridiculosly huge. Plus my twin boys were always trying to touch and bug each other when they were nursing. Which led to them jerking their heads back. Not a comfortable experience when they are lactated on trying to nurse. I just gave up and feed them separately using the Boppy. For me it was so much easier and I feel like didn’t really take much more time because they focused more when they were nursing one at a time anyway.
