Preparing for Twins Checklist

Having twins is a lifechanging moment. You’ve already prepared for the big moment. But are you really prepared? Today, we’re going to explain what you need to know about having twins – and how to prepare using our Preparing for Twins Checklist.


Make sure you have all of the following clothes and articles of clothing to prepare for your twins:

  • 12 to 14 one piece under shirts
  • 12 to 14 one piece sleeping outfits/gowns
  • 8 to 12 pairs of socks or booties
  • 6 to 8 sweaters or jackets (consider buying more for colder climates)
  • 4 to 6 hats and mitts

Sleeping and Bedrooms

  • 2 cribs or bassinets (unless your twins are sharing)
  • 4 to 8 sheets
  • 4 to 8 receiving blankets
  • 2 to 4 heavier blankets for winter
  • 1 baby monitor (or 2, if they’re not sharing a room)
  • 1 humidifier (babies tend to have dry skin, so some doctors recommend using a humidifier, especially if you live in a dry climate)
  • 2 to 4 sleeping bags
  • 2 sets of sheet savers or mattress covers
  • 1 night light
  • A mobile or music player that can play sleepy music (some parents use a white noise machine)
  • Nursery decorations

Feeding and Eating

  • 1 twin nursing pillow
  • 8 to 12 bottles (if you’re planning to bottle feed)
  • 1 bottle sterilizer
  • 2 to 4 cans of formula (if bottle feeding; remember, for twins, some mothers find their bodies just can’t produce enough milk for two babies, so you often need to supplement with formula or start using it exclusively)
  • 8 to 10 burp cloths
  • 1 bottle brush
  • 6 to 8 bibs
  • 1 double breast pump and accessories
  • 1 bottle warmer
  • 6 to 8 pacifiers
  • 2 high chairs

Bathing and Washing

  • 1 baby bath and/or bath supports for your tub/basin/sink
  • 4 to 6 bath towels
  • 4 to 6 washcloths
  • 1 container of baby wash
  • 1 container of baby lotion
  • 1 pack of cotton swabs
  • 1 baby hair brush

Changing and Diapers

  • Approximately 100 to 150 diaper per week (disposable)
  • 2 to 4 packs of baby wipes
  • 2 jar of diaper rash ointment
  • 1 changing table or changing mat

Going Out

  • 2 infant car seats
  • 1 double stroller (or 2 separate strollers, if you’re planning to always go out with your partner/friends/family)
  • 1 diaper bag

Baby Care and Health Care

  • 1 baby thermometer
  • 1 set of nail clippers and scissors
  • 1 medicine dropper or syringe
  • 1 set of Infants Tylenol (for fevers)


  • 2 baby bouncers or baby swings
  • 1 play mat or gym

Other Items to Consider

  • 2 bottles of vitamin D supplements (talk to your doctor; not all babies require vitamin D supplements, but some doctors recommend using vitamin D supplements for breastfed babies; formula fed babies don’t need one because most formulas contain the right amount of vitamin D)
  • Childcare arrangements, especially if you live in a country without parental leave and you need to go back to work quickly after giving birth
  • Doctors’ visits and immunizations, if necessary, including booking any required appointments in advance, or finding a pediatrician if you’re living in a new city


  • 1 Diary: Some parents use this to track the daily life of parenting. You can look back at it when you’re older, or give it to your kid as a keepsake.
  • Baby Books: You can find thousands of baby books for sale on Amazon or at any bookstore.
  • Cameras: Whether you’re taking photos on your phone or on a camera, make sure you have plenty of ways to capture your memories.
  • Newspaper from Birthday: Some families use this as a memento. It’s a cool way to remember what the world was like on your kid’s date of birth.

Double Up On (Almost) Everything

Ultimately, the “Preparing for Twins” checklist is similar to an ordinary baby checklist – you just double pretty much everything on the list.

However, you don’t need to double everything. As the parents of twins, you’ll want to reduce costs wherever possible, and that means avoiding buying two items when you only need one.

But You Can Get By With One of Some Things

Some of the items where you can just buy one include a stroller (buy a good double stroller), a bath (when your kids are old enough to bathe together, they’ll be able to use a normal bathtub), a swing (you can rock one baby while letting the other relax in the swing), a changing table (even super-parents won’t be able to change two diapers at once), a portable crib (they may be able to share a crib when traveling), and a diaper pail (just because you’re cleaning twice as many diapers doesn’t mean you need two diaper pails).

By following the checklist above, you can make sure your life is as easy as possible – although certainly not easy – over the coming months.

What is the Bradley Method?

The Bradley method is a natural childbirth technique pioneered by Dr. Robert Bradley in the 1940s. Today, the technique is also known as “husband-coached childbirth”.

The Bradley method became popular in the 1960s after the publication of Dr. Bradley’s book, Husband-Coached Childbirth, in 1965. It’s remained popular over the years – especially among those who advocate a natural birth.

The Bradley method is based off a simple principle: practitioners believe that anyone with the right coaching from a loving and supportive individual (like a husband) can give birth naturally – without drugs or surgery – to a healthy baby.

Today, you can find Bradley method classes around the world. During classes, you’ll learn about everything from nutritional advice to relaxation and pain management techniques. Husbands and partners are expected to participate in classes – as they will play an active role in the birth.

How Does the Bradley Method Work?

The Bradley method is based on the idea that childbirth is a natural process. After all, women have been giving birth to children long before the invention of modern medicine. With the right nutrition, fitness, and pain management techniques, expectant mothers can enjoy a smoother, healthier childbirth process.

The primary goal of the Bradley method is simple: to help you give birth to a healthy child. Practitioners of the Bradley method claim that approximately 86% of Bradley mothers have vaginal births without drugs.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn as part of the Bradley method, or through Bradley classes:

  • How to give birth to a natural, healthy child without the use of drugs or medicine
  • Nutritional advice before, during, and after the birth of your child
  • Relaxation techniques to help you before and during the birth
  • Natural breathing techniques you can use to manage pain
  • How your husband (or partner) can actively participate as your supportive birth coach
  • How to be knowledgeable about birth services
  • The importance of breastfeeding, and how to breastfeed to maximize the health of your baby
  • How to make informed decisions regarding birth procedures, attendants, and the birthplace of your child
  • The “Six Needs of the Laboring Woman”, which include quiet, darkness, solitude, physical comfort, deep and complete relaxation and abdominal breathing, as well as closed eyes and the appearance of sleep
  • Different labor positions and the comfort measures you can take to minimize the pain of the birth
  • How to master your relaxation techniques as a pain relief tool, including relaxation techniques couples are encouraged to practice daily; then, when the birth comes, they can perform these relaxation techniques together to minimize pain

When Should You Begin the Bradley Method?

Typically, couples begin Bradley method training in the fifth month.

However, instructors will tell you that the earlier you start, the better prepared you’ll be emotionally, physically, and mentally. If you’re interested in the Bradley method, you can find classes catering to every stage of your pregnancy.

If you’re working with an official training organization, Bradley method classes should last about 12 weeks – right up to the birth of your child.

How to Learn the Bradley Method

If you search for information about the Bradley method online, you’ll undoubtedly encounter a website called That website was created by the “American Academy of Husband-Coached Childbirth”, and they’ve trademarked the name “The Bradley Method”. It’s unclear how the website is affiliated with Dr. Bradley (if at all), but they’ll connect you with Bradley method instructors in your area. The website has a directory of instructors across all 50 states. A class typically lasts about 12 weeks.

Typically, these classes cost between $250 and $450 per class. It’s not covered by insurance.

You can find reviews online from all types of parents. Some people feel the classes were worth it. Others felt it was a waste of money. In most cases, the quality comes down to the instructor. Intelligent and experienced instructors can provide valuable mentorship throughout the birthing process. Inexperienced instructors, however, can leave you feeling ripped off.

What many people do is buy various Bradley method books. They’ll either take one or two Bradley method classes, then read the books to fill in any gaps in knowledge. Some of the best books include:

Husband-Coached Childbirth by Robert A. Bradley, M.D.

Natural Childbirth The Bradley Way by Susan McCutcheon

Assistant Coach’s Manual by Susan Hathaway Bek and Marjie Hathaway

Bradley Method Class Pricing: How Much Should You Expect to Pay?

Typically, Bradley method classes are priced between $250 and $450 USD, depending on the cost of living in your area. Sometimes, classes are spread out over a single weekend or day. In other cases, they’re spread out over 2 hour sessions every week.

Ultimately, the Bradley method is a natural birthing technique that involves educating expectant parents on how to give birth safely, naturally, and without the use of medication. Many people swear by the technique and claim the classes were worth it, while others find that it’s not the right choice for them. Talk to your partner to find out if the Bradley method is the right choice for you.

Your doctor can explain the safety of all vaccines listed above, including how to relieve any vaccine side effects in your children.

The Best Ways to Tell Your Husband You’re Pregnant

Finding out you’re going to be a parent is a lifechanging moment. You’ve already gone through it – now, you need to reveal your pregnancy to your husband.

What’s the best way to reveal your pregnancy to your husband? Let’s take a look at some of the most popular methods available today – including some time-honored methods that have remained popular for decades.

Give Him a Baby Outfit or Baby Shoes

One of the classic ways to tell a husband about a pregnancy is to buy a piece of baby’s clothing – like a onesie. During the early stages of pregnancy, you won’t know whether or not it’s a boy or girl, so you should keep this outfit gender neutral. Onesies are a popular option, but tiny baby shoes can also work.

Buy a baby onesie that says, “I love my daddy” on it. Put it in a box and give it to your husband as a gift.  Watch the surprise on his face as he opens up the gift, looks at it in confusion, then slowly realizes what it means.

The best part about this gift is that you’re going to need it when the baby is born!

Wear a Shirt that Says “I’m Pregnant”

This is a good (and slightly devious) way to test how observant your husband is. Wear a shirt that flat-out tells your husband about your pregnancy. You can buy shirts that say, “I’m pregnant”, for example, or shirts that say, “Preggers”. Some of the shirts have floral print or flowery lettering, so they look innocent at first glance.

Wear the shirt around the house. Wear it out to dinner. Wear it on a date. See how long it takes him to notice.

Cupcakes and Other Dessert Surprises

You can find cupcake or cake toppers that feature a word like “baby” on top. Bake your husband a cake or cupcake with that topper, then watch the surprise as you give him the dessert. It’s a fun, adorable, and sweet way to tell a man he’s going to be a father.

Box of Chocolates

Sometimes, you can take the cupcake idea a step further. Make or buy a box of chocolates. Have each chocolate signify a letter. Spell out something like, “You’re Going To Be a Dad” or “I Love You Dad”. Your husband can open the box of chocolates to reveal the big surprise.

Beer and Other Alcohol Surprises

Maybe your husband prefers a good beer over a good dessert. There are a few different ways to handle this reveal. You can walk in with a tall, cold glass of beer and a smaller, “baby” beer beside it. You could use an airplane-sized bottle to signify the baby. At least with this method, the guy has an easy way to calm down after you reveal your pregnancy. Who doesn’t like a cold beer?

If you want to take this a step further, you can get bottles of whisky that feature a personalized message – or the name of the person. Typically, these bottles are used for special gifts. However, if you change the name to “Daddy”, it turns into a quick and easy pregnancy reveal. You can also find certain beer customization kits, or beer labeling kits, that let you personalize a bottle with a child’s name.

Personalized Starbucks Orders

You know at Starbucks when the barista asks for your name? Have them write daddy on your cup. Or, write it on the cup yourself. Bring it to your husband and watch the surprise as he sees the word “daddy” instead of his name.

Leave the Pregnancy Test In a Visible Spot

Out of all the methods on the list, this might be the easiest. You probably found out you were pregnant from a pregnancy test, so why can’t your husband find out that way too? Leave your positive pregnancy test in a visible spot – like on the kitchen counter, attached to your fridge, or in his underwear drawer.

Use a Funny Card

A funny card is another easy way to tell your man about the pregnancy – especially if he doesn’t like dramatic surprises. There are pregnancy cards at any card store, ranging from tacky/funny cards to heartfelt congratulatory cards.

Hide a Message At the Bottom of a Coffee Mug

You can buy coffee mugs online that feature a special message at the bottom – like, “We’re Pregnant”, or “Hi Daddy”. It might make him spit out his coffee, but it’s a cute way to tell your husband he’s going to be a father.

The Food Reveal

If you’ve been on Facebook at some point in the past 5 years, you’ve probably seen one of your friends do a “food reveal”, where they talk about how big their baby is at various stages of the pregnancy. You can do this to reveal the pregnancy to your husband.

For instance, cook your husband a plate of peas. Then, pick up a pea in your hand and look at it quizzically. When your husband inevitably asks what you’re doing, tell him something like, “I was just thinking that’s about how big your baby is right now”. Obviously, customize your food based on the week of your pregnancy.

Leave Out a Baby Toy, a Pacifier, or Something Similar

This reveal is easy and you can use it after you give birth. Buy a pacifier, baby food, diapers, a teddy bear, or some other baby care item. Leave it on your coffee table or kitchen table and wait for your husband to make the connection.

A Father’s Day Card

This one works great if you find out you’re pregnant in June. However, it can work well at any time of the year. Make your husband a Father’s Day card. Or, buy a Father’s Day card in June. Then, wait until you’re pregnant to give him the card. This is another reveal that will take a few seconds, then will suddenly register on his face. Also a balloon reveal.

How to Announce a Pregnancy

So you found out you’re pregnant. Now, you need to tell everyone important to you. Today, we’re explaining the best ways to announce a pregnancy. On this list, you’ll find some popular new trends and some time-honored ways to announce a pregnancy.

Show your Special Photo to Loved Ones Before You Post on Social Media

In this day and age, most people use social media. However, older friends and relatives probably don’t use it as frequently as younger ones. Yes, it’s easy to post a cute pregnancy reveal on social media, but it’s not always the most inclusive way to tell your friends and relatives.

Here’s a good compromise: take your cute social media photo, then show it to your loved ones in a special reveal party. Take your relatives out for dinner, for example, and pass the photos down the table.

Alternatively, mail the announcement to loved ones with a special message.

Once you’ve told the people closest to you, you can post it on social media guilt-free.

Give Away Personalized Fortune Cookies

If you’re feeling extra creative, and don’t mind putting in extra work, then you can reveal your pregnancy through a fortune cookie. It’s not that hard to bake fortune cookies at home. Of course, some people just slip a piece of paper into a store-bought fortune cookie. Or, slide a piece of paper into a fortune cookie you got as part of your Chinese restaurant order. This is a great way to turn your romantic “night in” into a special pregnancy announcement.

The Food Comparison Reveal

Food reveals are popular on social media. You know the ones I’m talking about: someone posts a photo of their ultrasound, or their belly, or of an innocent piece of food. Then, they post a caption saying something like “Our baby is as big as this pea”. Check a sizing guide online and post the appropriate food.

Alternatively, some people do this in-person. It’s a cute way to tell your friends and family about a pregnancy. Serve a bowl of grapes to your husband, for example, then pick up a grape and look at it with a weird look in your eyes. When he inevitably asks what you’re doing, say something like, “I was just thinking that this grape is about the size of our child right now”.

Reveal It Through your Favorite Hobby

Whether you’re revealing it to your husband, or you’re revealing it to friends and family, it’s easy to reveal a pregnancy through your favorite hobby.

If you like hiking, then climb a mountain and spell out your due date using rocks, for example, and take a picture. If you like kayaking, then have a professional photographer take a photo of the two of you kayaking with a baby’s life jacket between you. There are all sorts of ways to take this. Remember: people announce pregnancies every day. try to make yours unique, and people will remember it for a long time.

Involve your Current Family – Whether They’re Humans or Pets

Many couples involve dogs or cats in a pregnancy announcement. This one is popular if your dog or cat was your first “kid” – i.e. the first thing you and your partner raised together.

You can post a social media photo featuring your dog with a sign around his neck indicating your due date. Or, if you’re looking for a more personal pregnancy announcement, you can call your dog into a room filled with loved ones carrying that same sign around his neck.

Use Baby Toys and Baby Supplies

Whether it’s baby food, diapers, a pacifier, or cuddly toys, baby supplies make it pretty obvious what you’re expecting. Leave a pack of diapers on your kitchen table before your partner gets home from work. Ask your friends if they want to go shopping with you, then casually pick baby supplies off the shelf. It’s cheesy and lacks the drama of other reveals, but it’s still cute.

“Grandpa” and “Grandma” Reveals

These types of pregnancy announcements are easy and adorable. Take your parents or in-laws out to lunch. Give them a gift box. Inside that gift box you can place a baby item that says “Grandpa” or “Grandma” on it. obviously, this works really well if your parents or in-laws are having their first grandchild. You can find baby bibs that say things like, “I love grandma” on it, for example.

“Big Brother” and “Big Sister” Reveals

Get your kid a shirt that says, “I’m going to be a big brother/sister” on it. This one obviously works well if they’re old enough to read and understand what the shirt means. However, at any age, it makes a cute photo to send to loved ones or share to social media.

To make this reveal even more dramatic, you can have your child wear the shirt to a family gathering. Have them make a dramatic entrance to a family barbecue, for example. Or, let a loved one hold your child until they see the shirt they’re wearing.

Decorate Cupcakes, Cakes, Boxes of Chocolates, and Other Desserts

Make a box of chocolates. Label each chocolate with a letter that spells out “We’re Going to Be Parents”. Or, make cupcakes that say “Daddy” and “Mommy” on it. You can write it in icing or buy cake toppers that tell the news for you. Hand out the cupcakes during a family event, or bring out dessert to a loved one after dinner.

Make It Yours!

Ultimately, thousands of new pregnancy announcements are posted on social media every hour. It’s hard to be unique in this day and age. However, with a little thought and creativity, you can make a pregnancy announcement that your loved ones remember forever.

Are Gender Reveal Parties For The First Child Only?

Gender reveal parties are an exciting event for new parents. However, since gender reveal parties are a new trend, people are left with some uncertainty – like, should you only host a gender reveal party for your first child? Or should you host one for every child?

Let’s be honest: the first kid is always the most exciting kid. It’s a totally new experience. You remember everything – the first walk, the first words, the first birthday, and the first family trip. You remember most of these things with your second, third, and fourth kids – but it’s never going to have quite the same level of meaning.

That’s why many parents are on the fence: should you host gender reveal parties only for your first kid? Or should you host them for every kid?

If You Have a Gender Reveal Party for your First Kid, Then You Should Have Them for Future Kids

Your kids are going to have a natural rivalry as they grow up. Siblings always do. If you have a gender reveal party for one child, and not for another, then you’re giving your firstborn child ammunition for the rest of his or her life!

The answer is: no. Gender reveal parties are not just for your first kid. They’re for all your kids.

If you have 8 or 9 kids, then people could start to get sick of your gender reveal parties. Your invites may start to get declined.

However, your close friends and relatives will always care about the gender of your next child – whether it’s your second kid or your seventeenth kid.

Besides – the more gender reveal parties you have, the better you’ll get at planning them! You can even re-use decorations and props between parties.

Your Current Children Can Get Involved in Future Gender Reveal Parties

There’s one great advantage to having a gender reveal party for your second, third, and fourth kids: your current children can join the fun!

Many parents who are expecting their second child will involve their firstborn in the next gender reveal. The kid may smash a piñata, for example. Or, the child may be the one who opens the box to release the helium balloons.

Ultimately, your first gender reveal party was a celebration of two expectant parents entering the next stage of their lives. Your next gender reveal party is a celebration of your growing family.

Consider Inviting Different People to your Second, Third, and Fourth Gender Reveal Parties

Gender reveal parties are an exciting moment for close friends and close family. Many of your friends and distant family, however, will be just as happy to learn your child’s gender through your upcoming Facebook post.

With that in mind, you should consider changing the invitation list for your next gender reveal party. Your first gender reveal party is extra exciting because it’s your first child. As you have a second, third, and fourth kid, however, then people may start to lose exuberance.

Your best friends and closest family will always care about the gender of your next child. However, distant family and friends may not be as concerned.

There’s an obvious exception here: if you hosted a fun, unforgettable gender reveal party the first time, then people will want to come to your future gender reveal parties. The best gender reveal parties keep every guest entertained – you might have drinking games for younger friends and relatives, for example, and a comfortable sitting area for older relatives. You could have toys and pink and blue silly string for younger guests.

Ultimately, if you threw a good party the first time around, then people will come to your second, third, fourth, and 25th gender reveal parties. So no – gender reveal parties are not for your first child only.
