When Bottle feeding.. I loved the Podee. It's a straw system for the bottle.. any one who has triend bottle feeding twins at the same time know that isn't easy if you're by yourself... and the crying is more then you can bare.. so this was a heaven sent! i could travel with the kids give them thier bottle and with the bumps in the car i didn;t need to burp them afterwards either.

Well my twins are just over 3 now and I have to agree that their jumperoo's were a huge help at that age. Also a huge help were bath seats to bathe them at the same time and the double stroller. Not just for twins but for any kids, I would say durable furniture. We have leather furniture and it is so simple to clean up with spills and leaking diapers.

When they were younger I'd say the high chairs. Now that mine are 2 it's more the double stroller when we go out. It works well at stores and such too when we have ALL of our kids along. Some stores have carts with sections for toddlers, but not all and we have a 6 month old now too so have to make sure there's room for her in there if we take all of the kids.

My girls love to go shopping with me. But it is pretty difficult to push a double stroller and a grocery cart. But then I found and fell in love with the "Mommy Hook". It is a stroller hanger. I use it to go shopping but especially grocery shopping! All of my groceries fit in the bottom of my double stroller and when I check out, I can hang the bags from it. Can be found at Babies R Us and Toys R Us.

Bouncy and swing. Now that they are older and we take them out more I love these two place mats for when we eat out. I still have to wipe down their high chairs but don't worry as much about the table cause of the rubber place mats (with suction cups to keep in place). The restaurants appreciate them too cause they have nice crumb catchers. $7.99 each at babies r us.

Without a doubt their swings. They are sanity savers. And I also wouldn't be without the apnoea mattresses. My twins were born at 28 weeks, are now 17 months old and I still use the mattresses. Such a comfort knowing that if they stop breathing the alarm will sound. I was so scared about SIDS.

Definitely the swings and the bumbos! I don't know how I would've managed without them!

For us it was definitely the bouncers! Once they were older it was the stroller (18 months or so). Also the diaper bag (Baby Sherpa backpack style).

What is a bumbo. And mine do not share a crib. l'm too afraid of one suffocating the other. l think they spend enough time together playing on the floor.

Baby Einstein DVDs. l put each of the babies in a high chair in front of the tv every evening while l make dinner and do other things like laundry. And is there laundry! l didn't notice until they started eating food and drooling so much. Who has a super size load of whites twice a week, of all things.

hi they ued to till they were about 5months then i moved jess in to her own room in a crib as josh begun waking up during the night so he stayed with us in our room and he was waking her up. hoping he start sleeping thru again,but he hasnt yet so hes just in the spare room which i dont like i wanted them to share a room but in the middle of the night its easier to settle one baby rather than two. just hoping it dosnt affect their relasionship.do your 2 share a crib? it does go fast!

I agree there chairs were great mine are 6 half months and wont sit in them anymore and the play gym amused them for ages but they have grown out of that 2 they dont stay still long heheh ,I have a jumperoo and one of my twins loves it the other hates it i might get one for the door i think ! Do your babies still sleep in the same cot ?

i think i would say in the earlier stage was bouncy chairs so i could feed them at the same time and for bouncing them to sleep at the same time.also a floor gym. now at 7months i would say i have 1 door bouncer and 1 baby walker and they switch over when they get fed up! the waste of money for me was my 2 moses basket they never settled in them and liked to lay next to each other!
