This week on The Twinning Podcast we sit down with Laura Owen. Laura is a mom of twin girls and also an entrepreneur (Pink Iron).
In this conversation we cover everything from moving to basic life with twins. Laura also talks about how and why she started Pink Iron (check it out!).
Here are some of the items we mentioned:
Owlet Smart Sock Baby Monitor
Following the interview, I asked Laura what is her “go-to” gift for baby showers and also what is the one item every twin family needs.
Here is her response:
Go-to baby shower gift:
If you’re planning to breastfeed, then the Lansinoh Thereapearls is a must!
NOT planning to breastfeed (or don’t want booby gifts), a PRENATAL MASSAGE. I had four of these prior to giving birth and they were AMAZING.
Travel Crib MUST HAVE:
Guava Family Lotus Crib (can also convert to a bassinet!) – do not waste money on a regular pack & play, these are AMAZING!!! fold into a backpack for easy travel, my hubby and I STILL use these for our 2 year olds!
High chair recommendation:
Ikea Antilop High Chair. Our girls didn’t need anything fancy, and these are awesome for travel & going to family’s house!
The #1 item every twin family should have:
A solid travel system! We ended up buying multiple car seats because we got the wrong ones (that didn’t integrate with our stroller) – eek. We LOVED the City Select Baby Jogger with Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Carseats. (Please note: we also have a Double Bob Jogger stroller that I love, but it doesn’t integrate with 2 CAR SEATS at the same time – it’s only intended for 1 car seat and a bigger kid. #twindiscrimination) With the Click Connect Car Seats, my husband and I would actually time ourselves to see how fast we could get ourselves + both kids out of the car and into the stroller and into the store. The goal was 60 seconds. We pretty much always made it, lol.
