Twin Baby Gear Registry

Double the babies, double the registry items? Nope, not to worry—you’re not going to have to rent out a storage space to house all of the baby gear you’ll need for your upcoming twins’ arrival. Your registry will look a bit different than someone who’s expecting a singleton, though.

This sample registry covers all the baby gear you’ll need if twins are on the way.

Nursery

This bedside bassinet allows for your twins to be near you and next to each other, but secure in their own defined sleep spaces. The 360-degree swivel makes it easy to either move the bassinet closer to you (great for nighttime feeding or if you’re recovering from a C-section) or away from your bed so you can get out more easily. It also features soothing sounds and vibrations, a floor light and caddy, and comes with two sheets and two waterproof mattress pads.

Halo Twin Bassinest Swivel Sleeper Luxe Series

$484.99

This playard is a great early sleep option if you’re looking for a more affordable twin bassinet. The (removable) top bassinet feature is ideal for the first few months, while the lower portion can be used as a safe play space for months to come. (You may also want to check out the Joovy Room2 for another great twin playard option.)

Graco Pack 'n Play Twin Bassinet Playard

$199.99

Price and design put this crib at the top of our twin registry wishlist. At under $200 and with the option to eventually convert to a toddler bed, purchasing two of these won’t put too big of a dent into your wallet when compared to other similarly-styled crib options. We also love the built-in storage drawer underneath, perfect for all the extra blankets, bedding and more that you’ll need for two babies.

Carter’s by DaVinci Colby 4-in-1 Convertible Crib with Trundle Drawer

$199.99

You’ll need a minimum of four crib sheets for twins—and that can add up. Target’s Cloud Island sheets come in lots of fun, modern designs, wash well and are under $10 each.

Target Cloud Island Crib Sheets

$9.99

A swaddled baby is often a calmer, more content baby, but when you’ve got two baby burritos you need something that gets the job done quickly. The Swaddle UP comes on (and off) in seconds with one quick zip. It also lets babies sleep with their arms up so they can still self-soothe with their hands if needed.

Love to Dream Swaddle UP Original

$29.95

This nursery item is worth the splurge for twin parents as you’ll be spending more time changing diapers than the average parent. The Keekaroo has a non-slip base and can be used on any hard, sturdy surface, eliminating the need for a changing table. Best of all, it wipes completely clean so you won’t need to deal with buying (or washing) covers or pads.

Keekaroo Peanut Diaper Changing Pad

$129.95

Two babies means you’ll need eyes in the back of your head—or just a really good baby monitor. This one has high video quality and a 5-inch color LCD display, a 1,000-foot range and the ability to pan, tilt and zoom so you’ll be able to everything your little ones are up to.

Motorola MBP36XL Baby Monitor

$149.99

We always recommend adding a sound machine to any baby registry, but it’s especially useful for twins who may be more likely to wake each other up at night if they’re sharing a room. (White noise can also come in handy if you’re trying any sort of sleep training.) This one pulls triple-duty as a sound machine, night light and time-to-rise clock for the toddler years, and it can all be controlled via your smartphone.

Hatch Rest Sound Machine, Night Light & Time-to-Rise

$59.99

If you have the room in your nursery, a glider is worth the splurge and an item you’ll use with your twins for years. Standard models don’t usually accommodate two babies and an adult, but this one does. It’s just the right size for tandem nursing and bedtime routines.

Baby Relax Hadley Double Rocker

$249.00

Twins = more clothes, more diapers, and more stuff to organize. Keep everything in its place with these drawer dividers that are just right for organizing tiny clothing and lots more.

OXO Tot Drawer Divider (2 Pack)

$19.99

On the Go

Twins are often born early and weigh less than singletons. You’ll want to make sure you choose a car seat that accommodates smaller babies, and the KeyFit 30 is a good twin registry pick. It’s extremely easy to install and works for babies four pounds and up. It’s also compatible with lots of strollers, so it’s easy to make your own travel system.

Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat

$199.99

There are a few different options when it comes to twins + strollers, but one of the simplest (and most affordable) is this universal stroller frame. It’s lightweight, easy to maneuver and fits any infant car seat, making it easy to transfer your babies from the car right to the stroller without disturbing them.

Baby Trend Snap-N-Go Double Stroller Frame

$99.99

Finding a double stroller that can accomodate twins is tricky. If you don’t need the double car seat option, this stroller from Baby Jogger is our favorite pick. You can add on two prams (sold separately) that turn each seat into a bassinet until your little ones are big enough to sit in the stroller seats. It’s pricey, but more affordable than many other twin-friendly strollers with a similar design, and the City Mini GT2 Double is a solid choice with great suspension and maneuverability and an easy fold. (For a less expensive option, check out Baby Jogger’s City Tour 2 Double Stroller, which also accommodates two side-by-side bassinets.)

Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Double Stroller

$619.99

A lightweight side-by-side stroller is another great twin baby registry addition for when you’re out and about with your babies and don’t want the bulk of a larger stroller. This one is well priced, lightweight, features XL canopies for good sun protection and collapses and folds easily.

Zoe XLT The Twin+

$269.95

A baby carrier that is comfortable, can accommodate newborns and most of all is easy to use is important for all new parents, but especially those of twins. The Weego is specially designed for twins from birth and is easy to put on without any help.

Weego Twin Baby Carrier

$169.00

You’ll also want to add a more structured carrier to your twin registry for when your babies are a bit older. The TwinGo is our favorite. It can be used as a double carrier or converted into two single-child carriers so two people can carry one baby each if desired. Accessories allow the carrier to be used from early infancy through the toddler years, so you’ll get a lot of life out of it.

TwinGo Original Baby Carrier

$214.99

Designed by a mom of twins to make shopping with two little ones easier, the Buggy Bench creates a second seat in your grocery or store cart. It’s easy to attach and to store (it folds in half) and holds up to 40 pounds.

Buggy Bench Shopping Cart Seat Carrier

$45.00

Gear

There are a few things we think are worth doubling up on for a twin registry, and this bouncer seat is one of them. These seats are a comfy, safe spot for your twins to relax while you’re getting things done or just need a break. The seats have a small footprint, so they won’t overwhelm your space, and at under $30 each, it’s affordable to buy one for each baby.

Fisher-Price Baby’s Bouncer

$29.99

A swing is also helpful to have on-hand in case one (or both) of your babies prefers constant movement—but we think adding one to your registry, not two, is more than sufficient. We like this simple, compact model with six different sway speeds, vibration and sound options.

Graco Simple Sway Swing

$89.99

Feeding

Parents of twins have dubbed this a “miracle pillow.” It has multiple uses and is great for tandem nursing or dual bottle feeding. It also works for side-by-side propping and tummy time.

The Twin Z Pillow

$99.99

Twin parents are also often pumping parents. This hands-free bra is a must-have if you plan on pumping for your babies. It can be worn on its own or slipped right over your nursing bra and holds your pump and bottles securely in place so you can keep your hands free. (If you do end up pumping frequently or exclusively, you may also want to check out a wearable breast pump like the Willow or Elvie.)

Simple Wishes Hands Free Breastpump Bra

$39.00

This unique table isn’t a must-have for everyone, but so many twin parents swear by it that we wanted to include it on our list. It’s designed for bottle feeding two babies at the same time and is sure to make your life a whole lot easier if that’s the feeding choice you make for your twins.

Table for Two Twin Feeding System

$279.00

Every bit of time saved with twins helps. Steam cleaning nipples and bottle parts in just a few minutes is not only a time saver, it also doesn’t require your dishwasher to be full.

Medela Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags

$5.99

Feeding twins is messy! Stock up on XL burp cloths like these to minimize the spit-up and keep your babies (and you) as clean as possible.

Aden + Anais Classic Burpy Bib (2 Pack)

$22.00

Diapering

We won’t lie to you—you’re going to go through a ton of diapers and wipes with twins. Signing up for a subscription service is convenient, cost-effective and cuts down on last-minute diaper runs or Amazon orders. We love Hello Bello for quality and affordability.

Hello Bello Diaper Bundle Subscription

$65.00+

Double the babies means you’ll be need more while you’re out and about. This diaper bag is specifically designed to fit double side-by-side strollers, but can also be carried as a shoulder bag or a tote. It has a ton of space and 16 pockets for everything you’ll need for a day out with your twins.

Skip Hop Duo Double Signature

$72.99

Health & Safety

If your sink is large enough for two babies, this insert is a great option for twin bathtime. It’s soft and supportive and can be wrung out and hung to dry.

Blooming Bath Blooming Bath Lotus Baby Bath

$39.99

A humidifier helps keep babies more comfortable and breathing easier when they’re not feeling well. This one is filter-free (one less thing to clean, twin parents!) and lasts up to 30 hours before the tank needs to be refilled.

Vicks Filter Free Humidifier

$39.99

Clothing & Accessories

You can’t beat the basics when it comes to clothing for twins. These bodysuits are easy to mix and match and come five to a pack, so they’re wallet-friendly. (They come in long sleeves, too.)

Carter's Short Sleeve Bodysuit (5 Pack)

$11.99

Footed PJs can be worn for more than just sleep—they’re great for daytime outfits, too. These are organic, super soft and easy to get on and off thanks to the zipper.

Burt's Bees Baby Organic Sleep & Play Footie Pajamas

$13.95

A baby gown makes the first few months of diaper changes a lot easier, which is important when you’re dealing with twins since you’ll be doing double the work. They’re great for bedtime too.

Tea Collection Baby Gown

Play

We recommend buying only one activity gym for your twins, so make it a great one. The Play Gym features five different play zones and is large enough to easily entertain two babies at one time. It also turns into a fort for the toddler years so it will last you for a while.

Lovevery The Play Gym

$140.00

It’s absolutely essential to have gear that serves many functions. This activity center converts to a play station for cruisers and eventually a toddler table.

Skip Hop Explore & More 3-Stage Activity Center

$129.99

Large enough for two babies and cute enough for your IG feed, this milestone blanket is a fun twin registry addition.

Twin Milestone Blanket

$21.99

These soft animals make the perfect snuggly companion. We recommend getting two different animals for your twins (we love this sloth, but the narwhal and alpaca are pretty adorable too) so each baby has a special lovey all their own.

Slumberkins Plush Snuggler

$36.00

This oversized foam mat is large enough to contain two active babies. When it’s not in use, it rolls up so it can be quickly tucked out of sight.

Skip Hop DOUBLEPLAY Reversible Playmat

$109.00

Don’t forget, you’re going to need a spot to store all your twins’ toys! This fabric toy chest is the perfect solution to tame the (many) twin toys you’re about to receive.

3 Sprouts Toy Chest

$24.99
