    what to prepare before the delivery?

    hi there.
    i am expecting twins in June/09 and wondering what to get before the delivery to welcome babies.

    thinking to get twin stoller, baby bath, babybed etc...
    but to be honest, i have no idea what to buy....

    could any twin parents advice me what to get before the delivery???

    Thank you so much!!

    first off, what one person loves, another might find useless.

    a lot will depend on breast vs bottle feeding but generally:

    onesies
    crib/cot/bassinet (whatever it is you want the babies to sleep in)
    bedding
    nappies

    those are the ONLY ESSENTIALS.

    however, you may also wish to get:
    breastfeeding pillow
    bottles
    steriliser
    pacifiers
    baby bath (you can actually bathe babies in the regular bath or even the kitchen sink, you don't really need a bath for htem)
    change table (a bed, sofa, or even the floor can work just as well)
    bouncy chair/swing
    baby powder
    soft sponge for cleaning
    thermometer (better to have one before you need it)
    cotton balls
    wet wipes
    nursing tops (for you)
    nursing bras (for you)
    bra pads
    maternity pads
    some kind of blankets/sheets/wraps
    sling
    carseats
    stroller (that lay flat for babies)

    newborns don't really need toys... they may find something interesting by the time they get to 3 months or so.

    You can maybe contact the group of mums with multiple children > http://moms-hongkong.com/
    I'm sure you'll find plenty of help there ;)

    wow! thank you, carang! thats very useful and amazing!!
    there are so many things to get but seems like it really depends on our environment - house layout etc...
    will consider about all the iteams you raised with my husband and examine at maternity shops!

    anyway, thank you so much!!

    You might want to print off this to use as a discussion point. Good luck with the twins :)

    We also have a Yahoo group for pregnant members. We had 2 delivering this month, 1 due with trips any moment and 2 more in April / May (but they're on bed rest unfortunately).

    Please pm me and I can highly recommend signing up!
