spinoff: WHAT do you need to be ready for your twins??? - Page 2

post #21 of 25
congrats on making it to 36 weeks so far with your twins!!! Thats a great accomplishment! My twins are 2.5 months old and some of the things we have found we can't live without:

2 bouncers
2 boppy's
double snap and go stroller
pack and plays with bassinet tops (one upstairs and one downstairs)
good swaddling blankets
nuks
LOTS of diapers (haven't changed this many diapers ever, even with 3 in diapers before! )
and me-their food source/source of comfort!

Other than that, anything else I thought I needed was just a waste of space. I brought our swing upstairs and the babies HATED it, so it went back downstairs in the cellar (only 1/5 has liked being in the swing). Eventually I would like to find a worthwhile sling...just haven't gotten that far yet!

Melissa, you and I need to chat! Your kids are spaced in a similar way to mine, only i have a spare.

A few things that have saved me:

having a downstairs nursery. I have two changing pads, clothes, bibs, burp cloths, etc both up and down. I only wish I'd had 2 diaper pails.

boppy lounger pillows for each of them. the practically lived in those things for the first few months.

Not really an item, but the idea of not buying 2 of something before trying it out with the kids first. my son hates the bumpo but my daughter likes it, now I'm stuck with two (though they were gifts.) same thing with car seat swings, barely use it and have two (again, gifts.)

The fisher price aquarium swing. my son had horrible gas and was really fussy the first few months, that thing was the only thing that could calm him down and help him sleep some days.

those foam pads that lock together like puzzles... they're easy to wipe down and give them a cushioned surface to learn to roll over and crawl on. (we have hardwoods.)

Nice to see someone as crazy as me. I LOVE the way my kids are spaced though, and I swear it was easier adding twins into the group, just bc the other kids are soooooo close to each other and are used to adding a new baby every year or so. The first 1.5 months were a bit insane, but now that we are all in a routine, I am loving it (and can't wait to hopefully catch up with you and have a 6th in the future ).

I'm hoping this holds true for me as well. We're used to the many needs of the little people! I'm most worried about getting them settled in to nurse. I will have 6 six and under.....YIKES!
