Without a doubt, when feeding twins, you need some sort of contraption to help, whether you’re breastfeeding, formula feeding, or a combo of both. Our personal hands-down favorite is the Twin Z. One good thing about having twins is that your children learn to share early on. Encouraging your babies to do so from the start not only saves money, but also space, and there are plenty of baby items where a single purchase is just fine. Stroller.

Here is a list of things to consider. need for twins. Things you will need for twins: Basics. Diapers (cloth system or disposable – make sure to buy smaller packages of preemie and/or newborn sizes and buy Size 1 and up in bulk!) Wipes. Don’t buy two of everything It is a myth that twins can’t or won’t share. This is especially true when it comes to activity toys such as rockers, bouncers or anything electric.

When shopping for your newborn. Preparing for twins doesn’t have to be complicated. And it’s not a bad idea to start preparations in the early part of your twin pregnancy. You’ll have a lot more energy to tackle projects, go shoppin. Many moms say this ingenious pillow is a must-have item for parents of twins. Feeding one baby is hard enough — from lack of sleep, latching issues and tired arms — but add in another and.

But this is a vital step for making life easier later – so you can concentrate on bonding with baby. So set up a kit in the bathroom with some essentials: Sitz bath soak. Maternity Pads.

Peri bottle. Read my ultimate guide to postpartum recovery and find out how a sitz bath can help you heal faster. Everyone has to learn things for themselves.

Go easy on the shopping. With a new grandchild on the way, it’s tempting to go on a shopping spree. But before you do, ask the parents-to-be what they need, what they don’t want, and whether there’s a baby registry or wish list you can consult before you buy. A crib, unless you plan to have a family bed.

You’ll need to make a plan for baby to sleep somewhere. A bassinet cradle or three-sided crib (co-sleeper) can be a good option for the first few. Go with the Flow. Women like control.

We try to conceive based on our age, our work schedule, or the seasons. But as you’ve figured out, your baby-to-be doesn’t care about your schedule.

List of related literature:

Buy a few basics for the baby, like nappies, and a few baby clothes, but don’t rush out and buy a complete wardrobe until after it is born and you know exactly what you need.

  • I’ve been watching your for about a year now. I found you because I was overhauling our budget. I’m a Budget Boot Camper and Enrolled in the Productivity Boot Camp and enjoying both. Today my daughter went for her pregnancy confirmation ultrasound of her second pregnancy and found out she is having TWINS! So I’m creating a playlist for her of all your Twin videos, and re-watching them all myself! Grandma’s got a twin shopping list to make. She has a 19-month old girl, so she has 1 of the bigger things she needs, but will need to re-buy alot! Is it tacky to have a 2nd baby shower when you’re expecting twins?

  • Thank you so much for all your videos, and your blog. I am set to have twins and my little guy will be 18 months when they show up. You are great to watch, and the content is fabulous. Much love and big thanks from Canada!!

  • My waters broke early and I was walking around the house �� with a BIG towel in place, you know what I mean. I was getting all my baby gear out and in place for coming home. My husband who bless him was very stressed said, HONEY get in the shower. But I was ready lol �� xxx ��

  • Not expecting twins, but we are in a multi level, larger home now. So this video was still very helpful! Do you have any videos or blog posts about the transition from one child to two? We’re currently trying for baby #2.

  • Love your videos. Oh mother, expensive? Cost of having a baby in Germany, by C-Secsion, hospital 5 days = 40€ (we pay for the night stay and food, 10 eur a day). Medical bills are cheap cheap cheap.
    In Portugal (we are from there) is total free.

  • I buy a bobby pillow for each birth of friends and family but our grandchildren came so fast that one pillow was given from mom to mom with a new cover included so I just got some extra covers as gifts. Diapers are always a great gift too. Great job mom!!! God bless. (Love the team grandma because I have ten grandchildren ages one to 17!!)

  • Anyone else checking Insta stories constantly since that false alarm?! I cannot imagine getting an epidural and THEN getting sent home!!! �� But sooo glad those babies are getting to “cook” a little longer! ����

  • You know you’ve found someone special, when no matter what mood your in or what’s happening in your life, they always manage to make you smileand to me that is you ��❤️����

  • I’ve seen that Boppy now has a nursing pillow with a firm side & a soft side, I wonder if that works better for nursing than a regular Boppy.

  • I Love �� how organised you are. Everyone always comments how organised I am ect ect and sometimes I think it’s a negative feature. NOT anymore! If I’m organised then yes I’m in control BUT I’m ready. Bring it on lol �� xxx

  • I feel like I comment on every video but my dear friend just had twins as her first babies, and the best advice she has is to do everything for them TOGETHER, feeding, napping, bathing. You would think that you have to have double the effort and attention for both but she said that actually it’s easier after just double teaming everything

  • For the nursing pads, I used reusable ones. I think the brand was “Bamboobies” they were thin, but they worked so well. I leaked overtime I fed forever, so I had to change the pads everytime, so the box of 60 disposables didn’t last long & got expensive fast. The washable ones, I just threw them in with baby laundry:). Excited for you!

  • I had my twins on the 11th of this month, so glad to see it’s not just me who thinks there needs to be more information from real people on twin pregnancy! I watched your nursery tour probably 100 times during my pregnancy because I wanted to see a real person who had twins talk about their experience rather then a midwife who didnt have multiples herself

  • The underweight and NICU fear isnt as common as we all tend to think. I was scared to death about being on bed rest and bringing home sickly babies. Then at 39 weeks reality set in that I wasnt a statistic and I shouldn’t be so caught up by old information. For one thing twins are alot more common now and so is having them full term w no health issues. My babies were 6 1/2 & 8lbs. 21&22 inches long. I actually asked for induction at 39 weeks because I was miserable and working up until that day. So basically anyone preg w twins try not to stress. Take high quality supplements including nordic natural fish oil, probiotics and a magnesium/calcium duo. It will take care of you while you grow healthy babies.

  • You should check out Kendra Atkins on YouTube if you haven’t already, she has some good videos about breastfeeding and schedules with her twins:)

  • How much does it cost to have a baby in America? It’s free in the UK. Psychologically however, some midwives or nurses rip you apart. ��

  • Que emocion!!!! Y que increible!!! Muchas felicidades Page y Buba, que Dios los bendiga siempre. Saludos desde Mexico, de una mama despilfarradora que esta aprendiendo a hacer presupuestos. (practiquen su español (: )

  • dito i am soooo done having babies! I wanted to wish you and the family good luck
    oh and to let you know I tried your favorite cadbury eggs because Easter is around the corner. So wished I did not buy them I cant stop myself!

  • My daughter had twins and all together I have had three grandchildren in the NICU. I am wondering if you are aware of car seats with the minimum weight requirements. When dealing with babies that come early is very stressful but when they get ready to be released some car seats are for 4lbs and up. Taking a tour of your local NICU if possible is very important. I will pray for you and your family and those precious little babies.

  • Love the zone.comment. Before my first kid, I never thought of that and no one mentions it. We had a place in the living room, bedroom and the bathroom. You need places where you can set them down! We called them “Docking Stations”

  • When we added baby #5, we definitely set things up in the van a couple months ahead. It helped get our kids ready and used to their new place in the van.

  • Thee most real video I’ve ever watched��loved every lil ounce of distraction they dished out. They are so adorable. I’m putting it out to the universe to bless me with twin boys❤️…

    Thoroughly enjoyed this…

    Regards

  • I asked my mom to change my sheets once we were admitted for induction, as well as taking my pillow + pillowcase and my labouring gown home to wash because it was all DRENCHED with sweat. �� Then she deep-cleaned my house while baby and I rested and bonded after coming home. No other kids, but my work husband/our best friend was arranged to look after our dogs, including my mom’s dog when she was, duh, at the hospital with us. ��

  • What’s name of swings? I didn’t see link for that. Thanks for sharing everything! Can’t wait see nursery tour. Getting soo close! Seems like yesterday u was sharing news with all us. Time is flying������

  • Hi, I have a new channel, you would like to visit it and subscribe, I have 100% Mexican decoration and food. animate!!! ��������

  • Hey Jordan
    Congratulations on your big family.
    I was wondering how old are you having the last twins?
    I had emergency C-section with my only one daughter at 36 if I should try to have more
    Good luck and keep me posted
    By the way I have learned a lot from you and my life is getting better

  • Not having babies in the near future but yes I want to see that hospital bag video! I didn’t even know there were so many to pack ��

  • I know this is an older video but I’m 24wks with twins and I still have no idea what I am doing. I have a bedroom that is the nursery but it’s too small for even one child. I’m at a loss.

  • The lady from Twiniversity said something that I literally want to put on our front door when the babies are born. “There are no visitors, there are only helpers.” If people are going to come they need to realize they will not be waited on and they will be asked to help with something.
