Here’s all the baby gear you’ll need for TWINS created with the help of experienced parents of twins and the baby gear experts at Babytalk and TwinGo Carrier
Having a safe, soothing place to set your little ones down simultaneously will be essential to getting anything else done! You can start with one to see if your babies like it and purchase one later if it’s a hit.
Option #1 for newborn sleeping arrangements: Rock ‘n plays are a fabulous bassinet/crib/pack ‘n play hybrid. They are portable and stow easily like a pack ‘n play, take up little space and are a great option to have baby close to you at night.
Option #2 for newborn sleeping arrangements: The twin bassinet feature is helpful if you would like your twins to be in your room during the early months, and the cribs larger size means your twins won’t outgrow it too soon. If you travel quite a bit, register for two.
When trying to sleep train two babies, it is so nice to have at least 1 sound machine (some have two) to help the other baby sleep even if one that keeps waking up.
Activity gyms are great from the get-go. What’s nice is it’s one product that you DO NOT need two of! In fact, your babies will enjoy exploring and playing together.
It’s absolutely essential to have gear that not only serves many functions, but stows easily. You may not need two at first, but around 6 months or so your kiddos will increasingly want to be doing the same things at the same time.
Twins are often born slightly premature and have softer heads as a result. This will help prevent flat heads for your twins.

The ability to carry your twins at the same time is a true lifesaver! The TwinGo converts into two ergonomic single-child carriers so two people can carry one baby each if desired.

The jumbo accessory tray is great for play time as well as for when you start to introduce solid foods later on.
A feeding system designed specifically for twins
It’s a good idea to have 10-16 bottles per baby. Seem like a lot? Babies go through these very quickly. Youll be happy when you aren’t spending your days washing out plastic bottles.
This is a top secret, twin secret. It will come in handy for those times you simply need to be handsfree! Holding bottles is a full time job, and every parent deserves a break from time to time.
Use receiving blankets as burp cloths – Traditional burp cloths are very small and may not catch all the spit-up while feeding your twins.
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 but doesn’t require your dishwasher to be full.
Option #1 for bathing: This bath allows you to both of your babies down at once. Some of the other standard baby baths are really only meant for one baby at a time.
Option #2 for bathing: This tub makes back-to-back baby bathing easy! Clean water continuously circulates in while dirty water flows out so you don’t have to dump or drain the tub and start all over again.
FOR THE NURSERY
Standard rockers/gliders don’t usually accommodate 2 babies and an adult. Splurge a little and get a double rocker and you will have a comfortable chair that will accommodate tandem nursing sessions and bedtime routines as your twins grow.
During the newborn months you can try crib sharing with a crib divider, or try using a rock ‘n play or pack ‘n play. However, your babies will grow quickly and need a separate crib. To get the biggest bang for your buck, be sure your crib can convert to at least a toddler bed.
