Everyone is surprised when they find out a friend or family member is going to have triplets. It is also very exciting because it’s triple the babies, which means triple the fun (and triple the necessary supplies & money needed). It also means three times the chaos because the parents are outnumbered by three little people that are a while from being self-sufficient in any way. The dependence that triplets have on their parents is why it is ideal to get baby gifts that are focused on making things easier for the parents, which will also make life more comfortable for the babies. Fortunately, there are some great items on the market that can achieve both.
Foundations Trip Triple Tandem Stroller
Having a stroller that will accommodate three little passengers is very important. It’s the only way Mom and Dad can safely transport their little ones at once. This stroller has a fantastic braking system and folds up as tight as possible, and the canopy is large. There are also cup holders and a storage area under the seats that make tasks like shopping much easier. If the parents have a diaper bag with a long strap, the handle isn’t too wide to hang the bag.
Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F. Messenger and Backpack Diaper Bag
When there are three babies, the need for a diaper bag large enough to carry supplies for all of them is very important. The Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F. Messenger and Backpack Diaper bag keeps everything well organized, and it is versatile. It has a top handle, an over-the-shoulder strap that can also be hung around the handles of a stroller, and backpack straps in case it is more feasible to carry the bag on the back. The backpack straps use memory foam for a comfortable fit. There are many interior pockets in addition to the small zipper on the front, large pouch on the front, and side pockets. Bottles, baby food, snacks, clothes, diapers, wipes, medicine, changes of clothes, and everything needed can be carried in this bag.
Primo Playard Cabana
Finding a Pack ‘n Play for three babies is most likely not happening, but the Primo Playard Cabana is a great place for three babies to lounge, especially outside. This fold-up Playard comes with a top cover that can protect the babies from insects and sun when taking them outside. The mesh side panels allow for proper ventilation and visibility. It’s like the babies having their own tent, but it can be used inside or outside because it can be easily transported.
Feeding & Activity Triplet Table
Instead of high chairs for triplets, there is the Feeding & Activity Triplet Table. While this works best for when babies can hold their heads up, the seats are built into a table, giving the parents more surface area for baby food jars or feeding bowls. There is also the fact that triplets can be extremely messy. The Feeding & Activity Triplet Table is flat, so all the high chair crevices are eliminated. This makes cleanup much easier and less time consuming. The seats are removable so they can be easily cleaned.
Bebe Bottle Sling
When on the go, it can be difficult to stop and feed the babies. This can be very time-consuming and a huge inconvenience depending where you are. The Bebe Bottle Sling hangs on the handle of each baby carrier in a way that perfectly positions the bottle. Doing this allows all three babies to feed at once, no matter where you are. The parents can place the babies in their carriers at home and the Bebe Bottle Sling can be used there, as well. It’s all about convenience while making sure the babies have what they need when they need it.
Skip Hop Owl Soother and Sound Machine
Babies need sleep. If they wake at different times, they can wake each other. This results in grouchy babies and overwhelmed parents. The Skip Hop Owl Soother and Sound Machine soothes the babies by playing four melodies and four nature sounds. There is also a nightlight and a projector that projects the stars and moon. The volume can be controlled. The parents can also adjust the machine to play a certain combination of lights and sounds. This can be the perfect way to make sure all three babies have a good night’s sleep, which means the parents will sleep well, as well.
HALO Sleep Sacks
If the babies will be sharing a Pack ‘n Play or crib, HALO Sleep Sacks make swaddling easy. Swaddling helps reduce the chance of SIDS, so these wearable blankets are a big help. These sacks can prevent the babies from scooting or rolling into each other. They also give them their own space while sleeping more safely. HALO sleep sacks come in different variations based on the baby’s development. These variations include the Sleepsack Swaddle for newborn to 6 months, the Sleepsack for newborn to 2 years, Sleepsack Early Walker for 6 months to 2 years, and Sleepsack Big Kids for children sized 2T to 5T.
Diapers.com Gift Card
A tough reality of having triplets is the number of diapers that the babies will need every day. A baby can go through anywhere between six and twelve diaper changes a day. This means it is possible for a parent to go through a standard package of newborn diapers a day. A gift card to diapers.com or a similar online diaper service will be extremely appreciated by the parents. Diapers can be the largest expense that parents face. With triplets, that expense can be hundreds of dollars per month.
Thirsties Snap Duo Wrap Diaper Covers
For parents who want to use cloth diapers instead of disposables to save money, Thirsties Snap Duo Wrap Diaper Covers are great for adding protection and style to cloth diapers. Diaper covers come with different designs, which can coordinate with the baby’s outfit for the day. These covers are easy to clean and help ensure that baby is afforded the protection that is received from a disposable diaper, if not more.
