When I gave birth to my daughter, I thought I had bought everything I'd need. But then I had my son, and I realized I was far from done (hello, jumbo diaper packs!). Now, even though I'm SO sleep deprived and haven't brushed my teeth in years, I can happily say I've got basically everything I need to be a mama of two (for now, LOL).
Here are the top 27 things I think every parent of multiples can benefit from having in their home.
1.An Ergobaby 360 All Carry Position Ergonomic Baby Carrier to have your back — literally. This supremely economical baby carrier will most definitely leave your hands free and keep your lower back supported. It can also bring you from the infant to toddler months, so no matter who is wanting to be held, you'll be totally covered.
2.Pampers Easy Ups Training Underwear – I turn to them when I'm low on baby diapers, using them for both my 3-year old AND my 7-month old. I swear by this multiple-kid mom hack, and I bet you will too.
3.Evenflo Feeding Balance + Wide Neck BPA-Free Plastic Baby Bottles – they are the BEST. They're lightweight but sturdy, and they're on the larger side, which gives you ultimate feeding flexibility. Stocking up on these in my diaper bag has helped me immensely on the days when I'm chasing my toddler around while my infant is strapped to me.
4.Nuby Insulated Cool Sipper Soft Spout Sippy Cups to be your next best step after bottles. They're leak resistant, so you don't have to worry about spills happening while you're on mom duty. They also mimic the sucking action of a kiddo, and they're insulated to keep drinks cool. Basically, they're a toddler's drinking dream and won't give parents clean-up nightmares.
5.First Years Take & Toss Bowls for an amazing way to store food fast. They’re microwave- and dishwasher-safe, made without BPA, and are totally spill-proof. Best little trade secret? You can use a dry erase marker on them to label when packing them for your toddler’s preschool adventures.
6.Baby Brezza Reusable Food Pouches as a great way to have homemade, easy food on hand that can be enjoyed by food-ready infants AND hungry toddlers. They're also easy to fill, easy to clean, and freezer safe.
7.The Fisher Price Infant to Toddler Rocker, which has been a lifesaver in my house. No one prepares you for the hot mess moment when your toddler decides they want to completely hijack all of the things you’ve bought for your baby. This product is incredibly helpful, because in addition to holding your baby, your toddler can actually fit in this rocker, too.
8.The Bright Baby First 100 Words Board Book – an amazing resource for a multiple kid household, because it's so easy to read. The bright, simple, and clear pictures make it a go-to for the big sister or brother who wants to read to their infant sibling. The hardbound quality of this book also means that little teethers can’t get too far in biting through it (although my 7-month-old has certainly tried).
10.A FOSTAK Big Capacity Diaper Bag that gets extra bonus points for being an actual backpack. I LOVE all of the sweet compartments — especially the area for bottles, which make feedings a snap. And the variety of color choices are rad — my personal fave is gray.
11.A Graco Pack 'n Play Portable Playard – the ultimate tool for parents with multiple kids. Both of my kiddos have loved taking turns sleeping in this Pack ‘n’ Play at night. And by day, it makes an awesome fenced in play area for little ones.
12.A Graco Ready2Grow Click Connect LX Stroller that's not joking around. I playfully call mine “The Chariot” because it’s ginormous. BUT it really is the SUV of double strollers. It has everything you could possibly want and more. I love clicking my baby’s infant car seat into the top frame and letting my toddler enjoy lounging in the front. And the amount of space for storage can make any on-the-go parent feel prepped and ready to go.
14.The Bright Starts 3-in-1 Around We Go Activity Center – it's, hands-down, the BEST baby walker around. The main seat winds around the activity center, so your kid can walk around in circles to their heart’s content without traveling far away from you. Which leaves you able to do things like play with your toddler or make a quick dinner (because let’s face it — dinners are always quickly made with multiples).
15.Babyganics Face, Hand & Baby Wipes – they're an awesome combo of natural ingredients and high quality durability, so they’ll work swell on both baby and toddler tushes. They also get bonus points for being so darn versatile that you can even wipe down counters AND take makeup off of your face with them.
19.This Hudson Baby Woven Terry Animal Hooded Towel – it's not only adorable, but also roomy enough to grow with your baby. Buy as many as you need to keep all of your tiny humans entertained after they're done splashing around in the bath. I personally love the nerdy fox design.
20.A Philips Avent Single Electric Breast Pump that's perfect for the mom on the go. The single electric pump is super helpful for when you need an extra hand, and the whole operation is small enough to fit in your diaper bag.
21.A Dreambaby Step Stool to help your toddler learn to do some stuff for themselves while you're handling her baby bro. My 3.5-year-old now loves to wash her hands and reach up for her own snacks at the table. With a stool like this, I don't have to hold her anymore while she does everything. And since the price can't be beat on these, I'll be stocking up so I can have one in almost every room.
22.A Delta Children DX Side by Side Folding Double Umbrella Stroller that earned my love, because it's lightweight enough to take on just about any trip. When you don't want the bulkiness of a larger stroller, this one can easily fit two small kids. There's also a cute cup holder and two small storage bags in the back for storage on-the-go.
24.A Marpac Dohm Classic White Noise Machine – it's just the thing you need to help your kiddos sleep through the night (most of the time, LOL). This machine was invented in 1962, so you know it's a time-tested gem. I keep mine by both kiddos' beds and my own too, because the sound they emit will make just about anyone peacefully sleepy.
25.A RiverRidge 2 Pc Folding Storage Bin Set to help any tired parent keep their home clean in a pinch. I'd suggest buying a few sets, because these lightweight boxes can go into any room with toys — and if you have more than one kid, you will most definitely have toys in more than just one room!
26.A LeapFrog 2-in-1 LeapTop Touch that has my toddler's full attention, and for this multitasking mama — that's a very good thing. The big buttons, bright colors, and carrying options have her swept away, and I love that if this toy gets in the hands of my younger baby, there are no small pieces to worry about. Oh, and it's pretty darn educational too.
