Let me just put this out there real quick- you need a lot of crap for twins.
But what exactly do you need to buy two of for twins?
Probably not as much as you think.
I have kind of made do with what I have purchased from the start, but if I was to go back and have twins again (which uhhh let’s not talk about that happening, please) there are a few things I for sure would buy two of for twins, but then some other things I would skip.
Here is what I would buy two of for twins:
Click on the titles to shop on Amazon for my favorites!
Car seats (well, duh)
High Chairs/ Booster seats (I love the boosters!)
Some people crib share, however, I felt that was really unsafe! Separate sleeping corridors for my twins until they are big enough to hop into each other’s beds if they want to.
These are a flat our life savor in the early months!
Some twin moms swear by just one, but if I was doing it over again I would fork over the space and buy two for the convenience of them! Kendall would only sleep in a swing for a good four months (supervised, of course!)
Don’t be like me washing bottles around the clock. If I did it over again, even with one baby, I would purchase double the bottles I did for the twins.
These are great for bathing and keeping babies cool during the summer. Here is a blog post where I talk allll about them.
I have heard amazing things about TwinGo carriers. I personally have never tried them, however. Instead I stick to a stroller when I am out with the twins alone and then my husband and I both baby wear when we go places together.
And then what I would only buy one of:
I’d suggest a Twin Z or my breastfriend pillow!
A single stack double stroller will last you FORVER. Just buy the all in one now, and you’re set.
You’re only going to be bathing one baby at a time. Therefore- one baby bath.
Again, you’ll only be changing one baby at a time!
Have you read about the many different uses for the Regalo Play Yard I shared a few months back? It is by far a MUST have for all moms, but especially twin moms!
I originally had two, until I bought this square one. It fit both of the twins perfectly underneath to play until they started wiggling around.
And lastly, a good ole’ diaper bag
Get the backpack version, or an organizing case like this one and thank me later.
Well, other than a crap load of diapers and wipes, click here for everything I think you need for your twins!
But aside from all of that stuff, you’re going to need help. In any shape or form- you need help.
You’re in for a wild ride, mama!
