Twin Gear You Can't Live WithoutI recently asked you, the Dad’s Guide to Twins Community on Facebook, “What piece of baby gear could you and your twins not live without?”

You were generous with your responses. I compiled them below.

Take a look and you just might find the magical piece of twin gear that will make your twin parenting life easier!

Getting Around

As we all know, getting around with twins in tow can be difficult. Here are the top twin gear to help you when you venture out of the house.

TwinGo Carrier

The TwinGo Carrier is great for babywearing your twins around the house or at the store.

Baby Trend Snap n Go Double Stroller

A double stroller is essential for navigating store aisles, the park, or a walk around the neighborhood. Many parents (including us) love the Baby Trend Snap n Go Double Stroller.

Here are the strollers that worked for our family.

Feeding the Twins

Baby Brezza

The Baby Brezza is like an in-home butler that prepares and brings you a prepared bottle of baby formula. This works great when you have to prepare countless bottles for your twins.

If you are breastfeeding or need help supporting the twins while bottle feeding, parents recommend twin feeding pillows like the Twin Z Pillow or the My Brest Friend Twins Nursing Pillow.

Soothing the Twins

Soothing two babies at once can be a daunting task. These items recommended by your fellow twin parents will help.

 

Infant Bouncer

You can get a simpler baby bouncer. We used something like this bouncer when our girls were infants.

Mamaroo

If you’d prefer something more high-tech, then the Mamaroo is a baby swing right out of a futuristic sci-fi movie.

Another twin parent recommended the Gro Blind blackout curtain. This will turn any room into a sleep friendly dark cave for your twins. This would be perfect for the nursery or when visiting a hotel or grandma’s house.

4 Critical Mistakes Expectant Twin Parents Make

Containing the Twins

Once your twins are mobile, there will be no stopping them. Here’s what your fellow twin parents are using to safely contain the twins.

A play yard or play pen like this can be a place for the twins to play safely where they can’t get into trouble.

You might also consider a pack n play for a smaller space.

If your twins are like mine, they seem to have endless energy. Try a doorway jumper like this and let them jump and bounce to their hearts’ content.

  1. The Weego Twin Baby Carrier! That’s the best one for newborn twins from 4lbs up to 6 months of age. Plus you don’t have to put one twin in the back; you can have both of them on your front/in full view at all times!
