A Personal Shopping Experience For Twins

I was at a complete loss when I set out to buy all the things we would need for our new bundles of joy joining us, times by two! I had questions like whats ISOFIX? How do you install a car seat? What kind of setup do I need for feeding if I’m not sure how breastfeeding will go or how to manage formula and bottles for two? To give me a helping hand I tried out Mamas & Papas personal shopper service which, not only is complimentary but is compressive; covering nursery, travel, car seats, strollers, feeding and clothing.

It was not only reassuring having an expert take me through everything from how to fit a car seat in the car, taking me through bottle options for feeding, strollers and baby wrap or carrying alternatives and practical ways to engage them in play or have them sitting securely when they are old enough.

When you’re expecting twins you often have to forgo style for practicality, but Mamas and Papas have plenty of options if you’ve got two on the way. Here are some of my favourite products I picked up.
