Hello Mamma Bears!
Our baby shower is 3 weeks away and I am so happy to let you know we have created our baby registries. I say registries because we indeed did register at 3 different stores; Buy Buy Baby, Amazon & Target. Did we go overboard? Well here is how I look at it; Buy Buy Baby although they have everything there are only a few stores around making access to them limited, Amazon well who doesn’t love the ease of their online ordering, and Target is just everywhere making it super accessible.
The hardest part for us was figuring out what things we needed for two babies and what we did not need at all. Although these are babies 3 & 4 for us the whole twin babies thing is so new we feel like new parents. But let’s hop right in. I do want to let you know I started with creating an in-person registry at Buy Buy Baby and then used that along with each stores checklists to guide me and help me find similar items on Amazon and Target. These are literally the things on my registry that we LOVE! Because there is soooo much to cover I am going to release this in sections. To start off lets dive into Gear!!!!
Stroller & Car Seats
Stroller– As soon as we knew we were having twins my heart was set on the UPPAbaby VISTA stroller because of it’s ability to go from single to double and even handle 3 kids with their piggyback board. I did not want a super wide or super wide stroller and the VISTA provides the right amount of stability and support without it being bulky.
Infant Car Seats– FOR TWINS YOU WILL NEED TWO. Although there are adapters for the VISTA for various car seats brands after much research we found the UPPAbaby MESA to be both safe and easy to install. It also gave us the ease of being able to easily click the car seats in and out of the stroller without requiring any additional adapters.D
Stroller Organizer– I love having one to be able to access keys, phones, as well as providing a nice little drink holder for mama.
Aden + Anais stroller blankets– Large enough to cover the whole front of your stroller giving your kiddos complete coverage but thin enough to keep it breathable inside.
Shopping Cart Cover- I have had no luck with finding one for twins. However, if you have company one pre shopping cart will work. Find one that doubles as a high chair cover when you eat out too.
Shopping Cart Hammock- I love my Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammocks. Super easy to shop with. Definitely recommend 2
Sound Machine- We owe our sleep to a noise machine. I also recommend getting 2 small on-the-go ones to clip onto each stroller seat or car seat.
Diaper Bag- We went with the JuJuBe Be Nurtured Pump Bag and added some accessories to repurpose as a diaper bag. It has enough storage space for our twins and toddler necessities.
