When you first find out you are having twins, you may at first think you are going to need two of all of your baby furniture for twins.

That is not true.

As parents of twins, we have compiled this simple list of the five pieces of baby furniture for twins that you will want to invest in.

1. Two Convertible Cribs

The Delta Children Emery 4-in-1 Convertible Baby Crib is an awesome choice. As a 4-in-1 crib, it is the only bed your twin will need for years to come.

Product Details:

Colors: Comes in Dark Chocolate (Shown), Grey, and White

*It is also available as a mini crib.*

If you have a smaller room for your twins, you may want to purchase two mini cribs. However, remember that if you purchase mini cribs for your twins, you must also purchase mattress pads and sheets that fit mini cribs.

2. A Changing Table

You will only need one changing table.

It will be the station where you keep your diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment and changes of clothes.

The Delta Children Infant Changing Table with Pad matches the crib er recommend. It received excellent reviews and is very affordable.

3. A Playard with Bassinets

It has extra features the other pack n plays we found for twins just don’t have.

When your twins are first born, a pack n play can be a great first place to have your twins sleep at night.

We placed this pack n play next to our bed and had each twin sleeping in one of the two removable bassinets. That made it easy for me, as the breastfeeding mother, to lean over and pick up each twin when they needed to breastfeed.

This will be the place you lay your twins down to nap throughout much of the day. During the day, many parents have this crib in the main sitting room. At night, many parents bring this crib into their bedroom.

Below we have included the main pros and cons of each pack n play.

Pros:

Two removable rock-a-bye bassinet each convert to standalone rockers

Removable rock-a-bye bassinet comes with canopy and carry handle, plush fabric and mesh sides for proper ventilation

Flip away changing table and deluxe parent organizer. Use only household mild soap and warm water. Do Not Use Bleach. Do Not Machine Wash

One-hand locking mechanism and large wheels with brakes

Electronic music center with volume control, nightlight, and vibration

Cons:

  • Only available in 1 color
  • Twins will quickly outgrow the bassinets

4. Two Bouncer Seats

One of the absolute must haves as a parent of twins is a bouncer seat for each twin. This will be a great place to sit your twins for bottle feedings, to read books to them, for short naps, when you need to go to the bathroom, and even while you cook dinner.

The Fisher-Price Infant-to-Toddler Rocker is our favorite choice for bouncer seats.

The seats are comfortable, well-made, lightweight and adorable.

These seats can be used for many purposes. They are the perfect place to bottle-feed your twins. Simply sit your babies in the seats, strap them in, and feed.

Babies love to be held. Holding one baby for hours a day can be tough enough, but holding twins can often be impossible. We often placed our twins into these bouncers, strapped the in and gently rocked them with our feet. Often the gently rocking put them right to sleep and allowed us to get a much-needed break.

These bouncers are also a great, safe place to put your twins if you need to go to the bathroom or get something to eat.

Unlike a large bassinet or portable playard, these bouncers can easily be taken into the kitchen, bathroom, porch, yard, or anywhere else you want to go.

5. One Electric Swing

In the beginning, we highly recommend you only purchase one baby swing.

We found there was never a time when we felt like we needed two swings. We also found that our twins would go through phases. One would find the swing soothing and the other would not.

The Graco Simple Sway Baby Swing is a great choice. It is versatile and made by a very reputable company.

Product Details:

Colors: 3 Colors and Patterns to Choose From

Price: $69.00-$92.87
