You’re expecting twins! This is a wonderful and unique feeling. Not every woman gets the opportunity to carry more than one child at a time. Their arrival can seem so far away when you are pregnant but it will be here in no time and you’ll want to be prepared. But if you are a first time parent or a first time parent of twins then you may not know where to start.
I’ve been there and I know other twin parents who encountered the same issue. I could not wait to celebrate the arrival of our twin girls but I had no idea what to put on my registry.
I got so excited and planned my own baby shower. I know that’s not how it’s supposed to go but I was determined and I had a vision in mind I wanted nobody to screw up. One of few things I was anal about. I wasn’t even that srupulous about my wedding.
Back to the registry. I registered at Target, which I love, and put a few necessities. I had it in my mind that all my loved ones were these awesome thoughtful people and they would give gifts that I hadn’t registered for because they knew what I would need.
I was wrong! I realized that sometimes you have to tell people what to buy and a baby shower registry is the perfect way to.
I love to be surprised with awesome gifts but in my experience it barely happens. At least with a registry you get exactly what you want.
So my registry checklist is a basic outline of what you will need. You get to decide the brands and designs and where you will register.
If you are pregnant with twins then I suggest the sooner you register the better. Twins usually deliver early so you’ll want to be prepared.
I was due November 11th. I had our baby shower September 2nd and delivered October 17th. We were a month early due to a condition I encountered call obstetric cholestasis.
Some items you may need 2 of and some you can just let them take turns. There are also some cool things out there made just for twins you may want to ask for.
Check out some of the items that are on the checklist for an idea of what you are in for:
Health and Beauty
Other Baby Care
