Needless to say I am terrified! Can anyone recommend how we should set up in preparation for them should we get two of everything like cots and bassinets, which stroller is recommended which car seats etc.
This is out first pregnancy so any help would be greatly appreciated. We have 2 bassinets for our twins everything else we only have 1 of.
And we have the baby jogger city select which we use the maxi cosi mico ap capsules with. Our twins are only 7 weeks old but are babies 4 and 5 for us. Ella Our twins had their own rooms so set up rooms accordingly…two cots, change tables etc.
We got two bassinets and they were in our room for first 2 months and used to wheel them out to lounge area during day. I also got breathing monitors which really gave me peace of mind. I also got them into a routine of settling to sleep from beginning which helped when i was doing bedtime routine on my own most nights. Good luck and enjoy the experience! Karen I have 12 week old twins and we have them together in one cot and will put them each in their own cot later.
I got the Abc zoom pram where you can put 2 capsules or bassinets on and when they 6 months or older you put to seats on. I liked this pram as the seats can face each other.
Having twins are a blessing Elmerien My third pregnancy was twin boys. Annah What are your tips for a mum pregnant with twins? By the time the twins are big enough to roll over they should be moved into their own separate cots.
Having twins are a blessing Elmerien My third pregnancy was twin boys. A big shock to say the least- they are nearly 2 now. Yes, buy two cots etc.
As for a pram it really depends on what your daily needs are and what type of car you have. Many if my favourites would not fit in the boot.
I have 4 children, and drive a Kia carnival I can only fit a double stroller in the back. Join the AMBA and other multiple groups in your area- they are a wealth of knowledge and support Bec Maybe look up your local multiple birth association.
Katherine My twins are 9 months old. I had two bassinets now they are each in a cot. Capsules for the car in the beginning were a godsend. I had the safe and sound unity capsules and have the baby jogger city select pram love it!!
I bought one swing and one bouncer so they could have a go at each. Definitely recommend joining your local multiple birth association on Facebook Lauren It depends if you want to put them in bassinets first and or have them in your room..
My twins came straight home into cots together in one room. I had capsules which attached to my mountain buggy duo. There are many options for bassinet cots. Good luck you can do it! She has they are almost three and baby no. We did and most was unused. Join multiple birth association in your local area AMBA.
You will need two car seats and a double pram. Some people use 1 cot to start with. Car seat you choose will depend on your car so best to visit baby store and check them all out.
We did 1 swing and 1 bouncer but found both loved the bouncer so we got rid of swing. Change table is good idea, especially if you have a ceaser, then get a quote, take it to next place ask their advice an see if they will go cheaper, and do it again until you get a good price for everything.
The more you buy from one store, the better the deal. Saves time an money later. And maxicosi capsule x2. You will need a pregnancy pillow, or Robyn Join the free Amba forum. It was the only thing that got me through my Monoamniotic pregnancy and the first hellish 6 months. Cheree two car seats and double stroller.
Kimberley Def need 2 baby swings it was my life saver, a double pram also i have the twin agile its great. I unfortunately couldnt sleep my babies together as my little man had talipes and was in plaster from birth so i needed 2 cots etc but i know many that had onw cot and slept them together Sam My twins are 3 now but as babies I slept them in their own cots side by side from day one. They still sleep the same now!
If u plan on bottle feeding I used 2 bath seats to lie them in and feed tandem that way. When breastfeeding a comfy pillow was great. Stock up on nappies when they are on special too! Congrats and all the best.
My twins are the best of friends!
But my advice is skip the bassinets. Side by side at first now one at each end. I use two cuddle u pillows cheaper then specialized pillows and can be used as normal pillows later on one on either side of me to prop the babies up when I have to tandem feed them expressed milk. I put a rolled up cloth nappy to prop the bottle of one baby up while I burp the other never leave a baby unattended with a propped bottle.
I have a baby jogger city mini side by side. They can go in it from birth until your ready for them to walk. It folds fairly flat and very easily. Stock up on nappies and wipes when on special before they are born. Sleep as much as you can during the pregnancy.
If you can, prepare and freeze meals before the babies arrive because once they are here neither of you will have much time or energy to cook.
Learn to be ok with having a messy house. Only do the bare essentials dishes, washing enlist as much help as you can from family and friends. Take the opportunity to sleep when they do easier said then done or you will regret it. I did house work instead of slept during one of their naps. Needless to say I was literally a zombie on auto pilot. Above all, find time to enjoy your babies. The time flys so quick with two of them.
