Baby Registry Product Picks for Multiples
Double The EssentialsThis includes bottles, pacifiers, snot suckers, etc. The goal is to minimize germs spread between babies. If this requires colour-coding with stickers or nail polish, do it.
A Double StrollerThere are lots of decisions to be made here. Tandem vs side-by-side, compatible with your infant seats, budget, all-terrain or everyday wheels? Check out the Snuggle Bugz Stroller Guide and educate yourself on your options. Head into any Snuggle Bugz location and test drive a few too!
Two BouncersThere are a lot of items that you can manage having only 1 of with multiples, but a bouncer isn’t one of them. You’re going to need a safe, dependable spot to put both babies down when you need to run to the washroom or unpack the groceries. They don’t need to have all the bells and whistles – check out the Rockout Bouncer by BabaBing for a versatile, foldaway bouncer at a reasonable price point.
Two Sound MachinesIf you’re planning to have your babies sleep in different areas of the house, a sound machine for each sleep space is recommended. A white noise machine will help drown out the noise of siblings and allow them to dream right through their womb-mates fussing!
A Twin Feeding PillowWhether you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding (#FedIsBest), a spot for both babies to eat comfortably is a necessity. This one by My Brest Friend is easy to wash with a zip off cover.
Two Infant SeatsSince you’ll be carrying 2 infant seats with you on a daily basis instead of just 1, we recommend the Nuna Pipa or Nuna Pipa Lite infant seats. They are the lightest on the market, with the Lite weighing in at under 5 pounds!
Sleep SacksYou’re going to have your hands full, and swaddling takes some getting used to. Save time and energy by purchasing an ErgoPouch cocoon or HALO SleepSack Swaddle and secure them with the pull of a zipper.
A Safe Play SpaceAs your newborns grow into mobile infants, it won’t be as easy to strap them into a bouncer and use the washroom. A safe spot to put your mobile babies takes a little bit more creativity. This PlayView enclosure by Skip Hop works as a room divider or freestanding “baby jail”. Toss a foam playmat underneath and some age-appropriate toys in this space and feel confident turning around to unload the dishwasher!
Space Saving High ChairsTwin parents LOVE the lobster-style high chairs that clamp onto islands or counters. They don’t take up any floor space in your kitchen and are easy to pack up and bring to the grandparents’ or on vacation. The Phil & Teds lobster high chair and the Mountain Buggy Pod Portable High Chair are top sellers!
Note: These seats are not compatible with every island, table or countertop. Please refer to the specifications on the product listing before purchasing.
