My best friend is expecting twin girls.. What kind of advice can you give me about having twins? We have both only ever had one baby at a time. I'm not sure what to say. She is moving with her husbands family in August. he will be deploying soon and will not be home till they are 3-4 months old. So I did see bottle holders to help on tv just not sure where to find them.
She's in for a wild ride. It's a lot of fun, but also a lot of work in the beginning. If she can get someone to help she'll be a lot better off. It might be rough while her husband is deployed. Some twins sleep awesome and are pretty easy, just like any baby, and others sleep poorly and you get half the sleep you would with a singleton who sleeps poorly.
If she's going to formula feed, then the Podee bottles are great. Most multiples moms love them. You can google them.
My twins never wanted to be put down, so a Moby carrier was awesome in the beginning. You can carry twins in that and have your hands free.
Tel your friend to feel free to post here with any questions she has.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

The Podee bottles were lifesavers for me! I think they sell them at BRU. I hope she has a lot of support, b/c it is a lot of work and can be overwhelming, especially at first. For me, it is hard to say what helped b/c it was kind of a blur. I do know I just adjusted to everything as things happened.
