If having one baby was exhausting for you, think about having two at the time. Twice as much work and nurturing, and forget about sleeping. But it does get better – only if you prepare yourself for having twins, and get all the necessary gadgets or other kind of equipment needed for having twins. And cost isn’t necessarily twice as much either – double strollers and other products designed especially for twins don’t cost a lot more than the ones made for one baby. But you do need to be cautious because there are a lot of twin baby products out there, more than you can differentiate and try. So we recommend following our advice and getting the best baby products you can get your hands on.
Figuring out exactly what products you need is not easy process. On one hand, you don’t want to be short on some feature, but on the other hand, you don’t want to overpay for multi functional baby products which you won’t end up using. You can meet up and socialize with other families who are expecting twins, but chances are, they are more clueless about baby products than you are. So you can’t really trust their advice. I can’t really tell you what you need either – but i can give you some pointers. There are some general features that all twin baby products must have, but all products must also comply with your special individual requirements. Think about what you need, and what you don’t. For example, if one of you will be staying at home every day, you don’t need to have a baby monitor, but if both of you plan to continue working on your jobs after giving birth, then you might want to invest in high quality baby monitor to keep in touch with your son or daughter. Then you can go to professional who will be able to aid you and recommend some of the best products out there. Or, you might want to choose yourselves.
Even though the real work begins after baby is born, you have still a lot to do while you’re still pregnant. First of all, start looking for maternity clothes which are designed to enhance mother’s safety and increase comfort. Buying best maternity leggings will cost you only tens of dollars, but it will be worth hundreds, especially when it’s cold. Other advantages maternity leggings have is their style. Sometimes, during pregnancy woman might become insecure about their figure, so wearing stylish maternity clothes ensures their happiness and calm state of mind.
Expect to pay double on your baby food and diapers. Those are two of the biggest expenses associated with having a baby. So try to fit that into your monthly budget. But ordering online might be a good way to do it. I know for a fact that Huggies diapers are very competitive in both – price and quality. So you might be able to save on diapers by buying from them. Plus, buying diapers in bulk is much cheaper than smaller quantities, which is another way you can cut your costs.
I’ve also noticed baby cribs that are designed for twins on Pinterest. I don’t know if the exactly same product exists, but you can definitely look for designs and ask carpenter to make one specially for you. So, good luck with your pregnancy, and hope everything goes smoothly and you have healthy, beautiful twins.
