Twins! { calgary newborn photography }

Introducing Mia and Micah.

These two babies have a special place in my heart! I get to help out with their care at night so their mom and dad can get some much needed sleep. They have started smiling and telling stories and are pretty much the sweetest babies ever!

ESSENTIALS FOR WHEN YOU ARE HAVING TWINS

When you find out you are having twins it is both overwhelming and exciting at the same time. Here are some tips from Danielle (their mom) of  her favourite must have essentials to help you out when you have twins.

Baby Brezza  It’s like a coffee maker, only it’s for baby formula. It even comes out warm! If you are unable to exclusively breastfeed and need to supplement with formula this is a lifesaver!

A bottle warmer and a good bottle system. We like Dr. Browns. You’ll need tons of bottles.

Medela Symphony hospital grade pump – to increase milk supply and maximize efficiency. You can rent it at Wee Feed in Calgary.

A Pack and Play – our twins don’t like being separated in bassinets.

Swings and bouncy chairs, these are a lifesaver for when you are alone and need another pair of hands to rock a baby.

Halo Sleep Sack Swaddles are our favourite for a good nights sleep.

A Postpartum Doula – for breastfeeding support, helping you get the babies on a schedule (imperative for twins) and general postpartum support. We used Jacquie Kesler

What to do when You’re Having Two – this is the best book we could find to help prepare us.
I’m going to add two of my own favourites as well!

KicKee Pants These are amazing sleepers/footies! They are super soft and always seem to fit just perfectly without squishing the little toes.<a

Baby Buddy Nursing Pillow  Great for nursing of course but also for feeding bottles (even tandem) or just snuggling baby with a little support for your arms.
