Want to know what to buy when expecting twins?
This is my essentials list for twins. I focussed mostly on the items you really need and left the nice to have/luxuries to a minimum. I combined the Layette list and various other lists from other twin and singleton moms.
The items marked with a star are must haves.
Luckily newborns don’t require all that much stuff, just a place to sleep, something to keep them warm, something to catch poop and mom’s boob. Babies are as expensive as you are willing to pay for convenience. I tried to cut down on unneccessary expenses. Luckily family and friends get caught up in the excitement of twins and can very generously kit you out with almost everything you need.
I updated the list as I saw what we used or didn’t use so it should be a fairly good list of what to buy when expecting twins. Obviously every parent is different and we all find our own preferences so please feel free to leave a comment about what you found worked well or was a waste of time for you.
Here is also a list for what to pack into you own hospital bag which should be packed from 28 weeks onwards.
