2) Stocked Nappy Bag
Having a nappy bag with everything you may need when you are out and about will help for any type of outing. Try having the bag stocked and ready to go the night before, this will cut your time in the morning whilst trying to get everyone ready to head out the door. Always pack as if you will be out the entire day, even if it will be short adventure. Time with the Twins may be prolonged by unplanned feeds and nappy changes. Don’t forget your cooler with breastmilk ready bottles if needed!
3) Feed and go
To alleviate unnecessary stress, plan your departure as soon as your babies are fed. Having a hungry baby, let alone two babies, will not be pleasant for anyone. Have everything ready: change babies (clean nappy and clothes), change yourself, align everything at the door, and then feed babies at the same time. Once they have been fed and burped, place them in their seats or carrier and head out. You will have a good amount of time where they will be sleeping that will allow you to accomplish an errand, until you may need to come back home or settle somewhere where you will have to feed babies once again.
4) Witching Hour Nightmare
Most babies will have a period of time during the day where they will get fussy and nothing will soothe them. This is what we call the dreaded witching hour! This time is usually, but not restricted to, the hours of 4-7 pm. Leaving your house at this time may prove an uphill battle for you and for your Twins. The babies should have the day coming to an end and getting into some form of bedtime routine. Going out will just push their routine back and may lead to two overtired, cranky babies (and one cranky Mummy)!
