Are you expecting twins? With all the twin baby gear that’s out there to buy, it can be overwhelming to decide what you really need, and what you could live without. This list of 8 must-haves for your twin baby gear will help you find the products that you need to make those first few months a little easier on everyone in your family. (Twin babies are so cute!)
1) Twins Crib + Mattress
A crib and mattress that can accommodate two babies is a must. You’ll have to put them side by side, or one baby will take up too much room in a single crib. If you’re planning on co-sleeping, be sure to make your bed sturdy enough to safely hold two newborns at once. It may also be worth it to get a second bed for each child so you don’t have to worry about moving them in and out of one space.
2) Twins Pillows
Twins usually like to be close and touching, which is why you’ll want to make sure that each twin has their own comfortable pillow. A big pillow between them won’t give them enough space, and they might end up rolling on top of each other. When it comes to twin baby gear, you can never have too many pillows!
3) Twins Baby Carrier
No one wants to go through life with a double stroller. They’re bulky, awkward, and take up way too much space. The solution? A twin baby gear carrier. This is an excellent option if you want to keep your twins close but mobile at all times. There are a variety of baby carriers on the market, including front, side, and backpack options.
4) Twins Bassinet
Babies love sleeping in their bassinets, but that’s not all. They need to be in them a lot during their first month or so. The best thing about a bassinet is that it’s portable and fits neatly into any room of your house. It also has a convenient nightlight and lullabies to soothe both you and your baby.
5) Twins Bouncer
Double babies mean double fun, and what’s more fun than having a twin bouncer? A double baby bouncer will help you keep your twins in line as they interact with each other. You can use it to entertain them when out of their playpen, and even take it on vacation with you to keep them entertained no matter where you are.
6) Diaper Bag
You’ll need a diaper bag to carry all your twins baby essentials, but it doesn’t have to be any bigger than you need. Look for one that fits under your stroller, is comfortable to carry, and has compartments to hold everything from bottles and diapers to snacks and burp cloths. In addition, choose a stylish bag that will go with all of your outfits!
7) Twins Swing
As soon as you find out that you are going to have twins, it is a good idea to set up a swing. By having one swing for each baby, not only will you be able to spend more time with both of them at once, but you can also use two swings in one place (such as a balcony or patio) without needing too much space.
8) Car Seats
Car seats are essential to safely transport your twin babies. Car seats keep infants and toddlers safe in a vehicle’s back seat. Infants who can sit up without assistance should be buckled into the rear-facing infant car seats.
