These 11 twin baby products won't take away the sleepless nights and endless feeding sessions, but they will make life more manageable.

Compact, foldable Joovy Nook High Chair
Honest Diaper and Wipes Subscription
You are going to want to sit down for this. Newborn babies go through about 300 diapers in their first month of life alone. Yeah, for you, that is 600 diapers in a span of 30 days. Do you want to be hauling two babies and 600 diapers home from Costco? No. No, you do not. With a diaper and wipes subscription, you can press the purchase button and have the goods land on your doorstep ASAP. This wasn't around when my twins were newborns, and yes, I am mad about it.
Sanity Saving Bottle Prop
Two hungry, screaming infants wailing for food is a multiples parent's worst nightmare, and that is coming straight from the horse's mouth. If you are down a pair of hands come feeding time, you need help, and for a mere $15, you can get it! A portable bottle feeder will go anywhere with you. Prop one bottle up while you feed the other baby, and make feeding time far less stressful.
Sleek Double Bassinet
For parents wanting to keep their babes close by during sleep sessions, a bassinet is a must. Have you ever tried cramming more than one bassinet in a small bedroom space? It is no fun trying to maneuver around these new pieces of baby furniture. The Simmons Kids by The Bed City Sleeper Bassinet for Twins is elegant, sleek, durable, and movable. Best part? Both babies fit in it! Who doesn't love a good two for the price of one deal?
A Sturdy Double Stroller for Parents On-The-Go
Shuffling around through life with two babies is a challenge on the very best of days. You need a double stroller, and it needs to check off a lot of boxes. I personally love side-by-side strollers, which allow for twin interaction, no one stuck in the stroller caboose ever, and they are so easy to fold up and carry around.
That said, my old girl was clunky and got jammed in doorways (sorry about that whiplash, kiddos!) The Zoe Twin+ Stroller has it all. It's so light, at only 19 pounds, has doorway-approved dimensions, and includes an option for a third or fourth seat.
A Twin Pillow With Multiple Uses
Any seasoned parent of infant multiples will tell you that double pillows are the bomb.com! You can buy two singular ones and spend your days lugging them underarm and setting them up in different parts of your home, or you can buy this awesome double pillow and call it a day. The TWIN Z PILLOW allows your twins to be closer together compared to two singular pillows, and while a bit pricey at nearly $100, it serves so many functions. From aiding with breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, helping the babies learn to flex those neck muscles and reduce reflux, the pillow price is completely justifiable.
Joovy Nook High Chair
After four kids, I have had multiple high chairs over the years, from ones that sit atop dining room chairs to ones that snap onto the table, to the big, clunky eyesores that camp out in your kitchen front and center for years.
I cannot tell you how badly I want to go back in time and purchase two of these Joovy Nook high chairs. If you have to have two high chairs (and you do, sorry), you want ones that are easy to clean, fold up for simple storage and have a sleek look and design. This particular chair comes in several color options, and some variations of this high chair also recline.
A Stylish Diaper Bag to Fit Literally Everything
As the parent of multiples, you will be toting around insane amounts of items, even for short trips to the grocery store. You need a durable diaper bag that has more room than the average bag, and let's be honest, sometimes the better you look, the better you feel. The Itzy Ritzy diaper bag collection is so stylish, the bags don't even look like diaper bags. While you are tired and drained on the inside, with this, you'll look like a put-together fashionista on the outside. Fake it til you make it, right?
A Playmat/Ball Yard With Room for Two
Babies don't stay put for very long, and before you know it, you are going to have two babies on your hands moving in opposite directions. Bright Starts 5-in-1 Your Way Ball Play is one of the larger ones on the market, measuring 48" by 48". There is plenty of space for both of your little movers and shakers to explore. It can lie flat, or the sides can fold up, containing your tots and their toys.
Weego Baby Carrier Will Save Your Arms
Toting twins around is a weighty task, both literally and figuratively speaking. There are dozens of twin carriers on the market. I purchased one back in the day; having the ability to carry around two babies hands-free at once sounded heavenly. Every time I wore the thing (which took about an hour to get on correctly), it damn near choked me out.
The Weego Twin Baby Carrier makes hands-free carrying easy. It is designed with newborns in mind and will accommodate little ones as they grow. This item snagged the Twiniversity Twinnie award winner for 2019 and 2020, so you know it is twin parent-approved. Think of all the dishes and laundry you can wash with this bad boy.
A White Noise Machine for Those Loud Crazy Nights
If you are expecting twins, expect to get very little sleep in the upcoming months (or years). There will be nights where they will wail their little heads off and at some point, you will probably join in the cry fest as well. Twins are also notorious for waking each other up... all night long.
A white noise machine can reduce the evening chaos by providing soothing sounds throughout a space. It might not solve all of your late-night problems, but it is certainly worth trying.
A Go-To Guide for Raising Multiples
When it comes to raising multiples, there is a lot to learn. Even if you aren't a new parent, the game has now changed. Twin parenting is an entirely new sport.
You need a guide to help you muddle through all of your musings, questions, and woes. You Can Two is an excellent hand-holding guide to all things twins. It will help you feel capable and confident as you navigate the wonderful new world of twin parenting.
Before you enter the wild world of parenting multiples (and trust me people... it is WILD), make sure you have what you need to make life even an ounce easier. Take all the help you can get, whether that be through the kindness of humans or must-have products, and step into the busiest but most beautiful parenting experience there is.
