Two babies crying. That’s what I remember the most about the first year. Trust me, we tried everything. Diet changes (for me), chiropractor, gripe water, gas drops, holding, rocking…
Yes, there were tons of smiles and giggles and sweet moments as well. I have a slight recollection of those and tons of beautiful pictures to remind me! However, we not only had twins and had to get to know two babies at the same time, we also had two very fussy, very needy babies. The absolute best help we had throughout this time was my mom coming every day to help out! I will never be able to thank her enough! Even with her help we needed some extra assistance. We were super blessed to be given many wonderful gifts from family and friends. Also, my SIL let us borrow most of her baby items so we didn’t have to get 2 of everything new! That would have been insane.
So, while I’ve never experienced having 1 baby at a time in our home, I do have lots of experience trying to keep babies happy!! The great thing is that very few of my “Favorite” products are Twin-Specific so really this could be applied to any and every baby registry. These got us through a lot of tough times!
We loved this because it was a swing and a bouncer!

Some Twin-Specific Items:
I had both of these at the beginning. I hear great reviews on the My Brest Friend but I MUCH preferred the Twin-Z. Watch Zulily for both of these as they sometimes go on sale there.
