The manufacturers of baby products are very effective in creating specific tools for your babies.
If you are to financially survive twins, you don’t need to buy a lot of these baby products.
Often times, you can get away with just buying one product and sharing it between your twins.
On a recent trip to the baby store, we saw a “tummy time mat” for sale. This product was colorfully decorated and had some built in activities.
When faced with the decision to purchase a very specialized baby product, ask yourself this question:
What would I do for my baby if I didn’t have this product?
In the tummy time example, you don’t need a specialized mat. Try a blanket on the floor. Problem solved.
Save the money. Think minimal.
This might even mean you DIY some solutions for your twins.
