They are all practical and fun gifts, some of which the parents might not consider buying themselves. So, here’s your chance to help her out by introducing her to this cool and fun list of baby gear.
Mom and Dad will both enjoy the results they get from this amazing rock ‘n play sleeper. When the twins get fussy, they can take turns relaxing from the calming vibration you can create from the touch of the button, and if you want to nap, just hook baby in and place the sleeper on the floor next to you. You can easily rock the baby with a gentle touch from your hands. It comes with a teething toy, so you can soothe an older baby, and the color and design are perfect for a boy and a girl. The price is right, so you can easily afford two, one for each baby. When things get rough, you can put one baby on your side of the bed and Dad can have the other one on his side of the bed. Sleep time couldn’t be any better than this!
Everyone who has twins, or at least two children, needs to have this well-designed stroller. Pushing a side-by-side stroller can be bulky and inconvenient, but with this inline stroller, you will never have that problem. It provides sixteen different seating combinations from two-tiered car seats to the bassinet and a single seat that reclines in four different positions. It does just about everything except for holding two bassinets at the same time. The back provides larger 12-inch wheels while the front provides smaller 8-inch wheels. If you are using this stroller for your twins you will need to purchase a second seat with the mounting bracket that is required. You will be pleased to find the convenient adjustable storage space on the bottom and the pockets behind the seats are an added bonus. This is certainly a great investment and well-worth the money. It is available in three colors of black, grey, and silver, so it can easily be used for your boys or girls, and the best thing is that it can be used through all stages of your baby’s stroller life. It can be used for all your children of every age, so you won’t ever need to purchase more than one stroller.
Another must-have for a family with twins is this twin bassinet and play yard by Graco. Anyone with a newborn knows that their eyes are closed more than they are open, so having them close by you is important, but you need to take advantage of the time they are asleep to get things done. With this convenient piece of baby equipment, you can put them in the room with you near the kitchen or the bathroom, you can even keep them close to your bed while you sleep. They can sleep in the bassinets for half of their newborn life and you can remove the bassinets when they are old enough to sleep and play in the bigger, bottom part. The beds are quilted for comfort and the mesh sides on the play yard will not only allow them to breathe, but you can watch them from a distance. It comes in a neutral color and a bag for travel and storage. Consider this bassinet/play yard combo when visiting Grandma or going to the sitter. It’s lightweight, easy-to-set-up and take-down, and it’s so versatile that it can be used for many years. This is a great baby shower gift and will be appreciated when those baby’s take turns crying at 2 am.
An ordinary diaper bag for one baby can be too small, so imagine using a standard sized bag for twins. With this awesome bag, you can fit all your baby’s needs and some of yours too! It provides sixteen pockets with a zipper to close the main compartment and handy magnets to close the others. Not only is there enough room for everything including side pockets for bottles and Sippy cups, but there is also a dedicated place for your cell phone and some pens in case you need to jot down a note. The color and design won’t make Dad feel uncomfortable because it is not only available in grey chevron, the solid grey is masculine and either bag provides you with a shoulder strap or a handle to carry it like a tote. It will easily attach to a side-by-side double stroller with clips, and given some skill, you might find a way to attach it to a standard stroller too. This is a perfect shower gift, and if Mom and Dad get two, that’s even better, because they can each have their own!
This is a gift idea not everyone might think of, but when you mix twins and breastfeeding, Mom will be glad you thought of it. This nursing pillow is designed for comfort and it will work better than an ordinary pillow. It wraps around mom and adjusts to fit snug while she props each baby on either side. She will have room to rest her arms while she supports their heads at just the right level. Her back will be supported, so this will give her the freedom to relax a bit while babies enjoy their feeding. She will enjoy the convenience of keeping essentials close by in the convenient sewn on pouch, and when the pillow gets soiled, she can easily zip it off and throw it in the washer. This is something Mom will love, and if she gets more than one, that’s okay, she can keep one in the bedroom and one in the living room.
These adorable bibs are definitely unique and will come in handy during those late-night feedings and days of teething. The bibs are made of cotton, so the baby’s skin won’t get irritated, and the designs are guaranteed so they won’t fade, crack, or bleed through. The pair of bibs read, she did it (with an arrow) and he did it (with an arrow). They also come in pairs of he’s and she’s depending on the gender of the baby. The bibs come in pairs of solid white, solid black, or one pink and one blue. The lettering will either be black or white depending on the bib color and they each show a big arrow pointing to their twin sibling. These bibs will be sure to get the mom-to-be laughing when she opens this gift.
Everyone knows that there are always more pictures of the first child than any of the others, there really is no reason behind that unless it’s because Mom and Dad’s time and energy get sucked away once the second baby arrives. Well, in this case, your mom-to-be is expecting twins, so you know she will be more tired than the average. You can make life a bit easier for her with this memorable picture frame that she can use for two. It’s available as a 4×6 or 5×7 horizontal or vertical, and it is made of natural wood with the natural wood color. The phrase, Twice the smiles, Twice the love, Twice the blessings from above, is neatly carved into the wood frame. This makes a special and unique gift that every parent is sure to love.
