Hi everyone! I'm 12wks pregnant with twins. 3 rounds of IVF to get here so I feel like I've been pregnant forever even though it's only actually been 3 months.
I have a handful of questions that I'm sure i could dig through these feeds for info on, but since baby products are always improving and also since I could really use some newer contacts over here I figured I'd ask them all in one place.
Hi all! I'm 12 wks pregnant with twins and have been having a particularly stressful time finding good info on a handful of things that are only really pertinent to us, so I figured I would start a thread and ask a few of them.
Moms of previous twins, PLEASE share what worked for you, moms currently pregnant with twins, please share thoughts and reasoning for what you are deciding. Or questions of your own, of course!
1. I am hoping to BF, and ideally tandem feed. The only nursing pillow for twins that I've really seen is the TWIN Z pillow. But it is like 5x the cost of a regular nursing pillow/boppy type. Will a normal one work to tandem feed if i am creative enough? I think yes, but hope it isn't wishful thinking.
2. Where are you planning to have your twins sleep the first few months? I'm definitely planning on keeping them in our bedroom, but having 2 bassinets/cosleepers or whatever seems somewhere between impractical and wasteful. I'm currently thinking if just putting them both in a pack n play together, but would appreciate other suggestions. Obviously I want to be frugal as much as possible, but a pricier solution really is better, i definitely want to hear about it!
3. Twin carriers...same general issues as far as expensive/worth it questions. Currently I'm thinking of doing slings once they're big enough and maybe a moby type wrap for before. But if there really is something else out there that is excellent, please share!
4. Twin strollers...i have found some that i like but they only claim to work after 6 months. I would really like something that works well before that, either that will work well for the whole first 2 years or if i have to buy 2 different strollers I'd like to know my options.
