Twin Products You Shouldn't Do Without


As a parent, when you find out that you are expecting multiples your whole world gets flipped upside down. For many of us who have already had children, we always wonder if there is something special that we need to get. Do you have to buy two of everything? Is there anything that parents of multiples just can’t live without? Are there any special “tools” out there that will help with the strenuous task of taking care of twins?

As a mother of twin girls, I have come up with a list of must haves for parents of multiples. You don’t need to get two of everything, you just need to make sure that you purchase the right items. Here are a few things that will make your life just a tad bit easier.

Bosom Baby Twin Nursing Pillow

Some of us have already had children and breastfed them successfully, but the very thought of tandem breastfeeding can be very overwhelming. What kind of tools will you need? Will a regular nursing pillow do? The answer is, if you do it right, no. Although you can breastfeed newborns with a regular size nursing pillow, this seemingly continuous task will become very hard once they start growing. The Bosom Baby Twin Nursing Pillow is three times as long as the regular nursing pillow and can be used for the long haul. It helps immensely to have the right tools for the jobs you will be doing the most often.

Bebe Bottle Sling

For those who will not be breastfeeding (or those that choose to pump and bottle feed), this is the one tool that you will be glad you purchased. Let’s face it-you’re not going to have help all the time, and chances are that if one is hungry the other will soon follow. The Bebe Bottle sling is a device that you attach to the car seat and it will support the baby’s bottle for you, enabling you to feed two babies at the same time. If the bottle ever gets away from the baby it will automatically swing right back into place. With the Bebe Bottle Slings, you can take turns holding them during feedings without having to make the other child(ren) wait. Many mothers know the flustered feeling of rushing one child through his/her meal because the other sibling is crying while awaiting their turn.

Twin Highchair

Before becoming a parent of multiples I had never even heard of a twin highchair. After seeing my first, it was love at first sight. Surprisingly enough, it even took up less room than having two highchairs. It not only helped the twins bond during feeding time, but was even used for arts and crafts! This particular model has adjustable legs and the seats are dishwasher safe. Talk about saving time!

Twin Carrier

There are a few of these on the market, but we recommend the TwinTrexx twin carrier. Unlike many baby carriers, this one is not bulky or heavy, and has no solid frames in the supports. This carrier is fully cotton, machine washable, and has little pockets in convenient areas (very helpful with twins on your chest!). As a bonus I've never seen elsewhere, it actually separates into two carriers if you want to share the carrying duties with a friend or partner!

Diaper bag

As a rule, you are going to need a bigger diaper bag than most of your friends. Two babies equals twice the diapers, changes of clothes, snacks, bottles, and everything else you'll discover you need to carry around with you. One bag that we found tailor made for twins and triplets is the Twinneroo diaper bag. A full 3-4 inches longer than any other bag we found, this stylish khaki bag has hidden compartments galore. We're talking insulated pockets for bottles/juice (keeps cold and warm temperatures), netting for holding things to the side, areas for wet clothing, and even a wide mouth for searching through all the stuff you'll be packing into it. It even comes with little "to go" bags for each child. Say your dropping one child off at Grandma's house? Lift out one of the insert bags complete with that child's bottles, medication, favorite snack, change of clothes, and anything else your child needs while on their own adventure. This bag has it all for twin and triplet moms.


These are just some of the items that I could not live without, and as founder of Stuff4Multiples.com, I see parents raving about these top items time and time again. I hope you will find them just as useful as we did! For more information on these products please visit http://Stuff4Multiples.com.
