Finding out twins are on the way is a wonderful surprise, but twins mean the parents will need to have more space, more clothes, and double the baby supplies. These are all things to consider when buying a gift for a parent expecting twins. The gift should be practical so that the parent can better manage two babies that will have the same demands almost simultaneously. It is certainly a job, but it is one that reaps so many rewards. By keeping in mind that the parents will be pulling double duty, you can get the right gift.
Weego Twin Baby Carrier
Just because there are two doesn’t mean that they can’t be taken places. Yes, it can be more challenging to carry two babies around, but the Weego Twin Baby Carrier makes it easier. Mom and Dad will enjoy being able to go on that fast grocery shopping trip or that walk around the neighborhood with the babies up against them. The Weego Twin Baby Carrier also makes doing chores around the house much easier. Sometimes Mom or Dad has a lot to do when the babies want to be held. This device makes multitasking easier.
Wilfred Diamond Fringe Blanket
If the new mom is going to nurse the babies and wants to use a cover while doing so, she will need a large nursing cover so both babies can be covered at once. One of the issues with receiving blankets is that they are barely large enough to cover one baby. This cotton-fringed cover with its colorful fringe and diamond pattern will be large enough to give mom the coverage that she wants on the spot.
Graco Pack'n Play with Twins Bassinet
Pack ‘n Plays are some of the best inventions for babies. You can put more than one baby in a Pack ‘n Play, but the Graco Pack ‘n Play with Twins Bassinet gives each baby his or her personal space. The babies don’t have to touch each other or roll into each other. All Mom or Dad has to do is place a baby in each bassinet, and they can be cozy on their own. When the parents don’t want to use the bassinets, they can be lifted out so the Pack ‘n Play can be used as a small playpen.
Itzbeen Twin Pack
Parents with twins can have a hard time juggling diaper changes, feedings, sleep, and all the tasks that twins require. The Itzbeen Twin Pack is a gadget that helps keep track of those important baby tasks. Mom or Dad can see how long it has been since the last changing, feeding, or nap. This can make life easier for overwhelmed parents.
Big Ol' Diaper Bag
The standard diaper bag is barely large enough to carry the supplies of one baby, which is why the new parents need the Big Ol’ Diaper Bag. This bag has all the room that is needed to carry bottles, diapers, wipes, medicine, changes of clothes, pacifiers, and everything that the babies need when on the go. The messenger-style bag has 16 pockets, and the strap is wide enough to fit around double stroller handles. This stylish bag will keep the parents organized amid the chaos.
My Best Friend Twins Nursing Pillow
To make it easier for Mom to hold her babies while nursing them, a twin nursing pillow is exactly what she needs. The My Best Friend Twins Nursing Pillow straps around her waist so she can place both babies on top and nurse them in the right position. This is easy on Mom’s arms and comfortable for the babies. The design also allows Mom to keep a good grip on the babies, which is much safer for them. There is also a pouch hanging on the side of the pillow that Mom can put things in like her drink or a toy so that she doesn’t have to get up once nursing has started.
J is for Jeep Scout Double Stroller
Double strollers come in different designs. They can be front-to-back or side-by-side. The J is for Jeep Scout Double Stroller is a side-by-side stroller that keeps the babies next to each other. They get the same view. One of the best features, aside from the fact the stroller keeps the babies secure, is that it is lightweight. With two growing children needing to be transported at once, keeping the weight light is very important.
The Baby Shusher
When the babies start screaming at the same time, it can be hard for parents not to lose their minds. The Baby Shusher soothes a baby by making a rhythmic “shushing” sound. It has a built-in sound sensor and can shush for 15 to 30 minutes. All parents have to do is record their own voices with the device because the babies are more likely to respond to a parent’s voice. The result is an engaged baby that is more likely to relax. The Baby Shusher can be used at night, during naptime, in the car, or anywhere the babies need to sleep.
Milk Maid Baby Bottle Holder
For the parents that bottle feed their babies, the Milk Maid Baby Bottle Holder is going to be a relief. The holder props up the baby’s bottle so he or she can eat independently. This frees parents’ hands to do other things. Of course, the device is to be used under supervision in case one of the babies chokes, but Mom or Dad can tend to one baby while the other eats or simply take a break during the few moments of silence.
Twin Baby Feeding System
Bottle feeding two babies at once can be difficult. The Twin Baby Feeding System sits the babies up in front of Mom and Dad so that both hands can be used to hold bottles. The connected seats have safety harnesses. They can also be positioned to ensure proper feeding posture, which can help in digestion. The parent has armrests that keep the arms, neck, and back from getting tired. Once the babies are old enough to eat solids, there are baby food holders on each seat so that spooning up the food and into each baby’s mouth is easy.
