Infant readiness checklist

Congratulations mama! You’re pregnant with multiples! Let me start off by saying that being a mom of multiples is the best and if you follow this checklist you will be sure to make it an unforgettable experience. (Which is perfect because one of the top complaints from MoMs is that the first 2 years are a blur.) 

I’m going to get right down to what you need to get ready for twins, however, my list is going to be VERY different than other MoMs advice. What I am going to help you get ready for, the perfect diaper bag won’t create for you, what to pack and not to pack for the hospital won’t create for you, and how many cribs to purchase won’t create for you.

What other moms of multiples are not telling you about infant routines

When I was a new mom with infant twins, several things saved me from having a mental break down; a supportive husband, some occasional help from a neighbor, and the ability to call my mom to talk about my overwhelm. But the number one thing that saved my sanity was having a routine, and it was the only thing that I was 100% in control over. So even if those other things don’t exist in your motherhood, it ok because they are secondary in importance.  

My routine helped me from getting mentally exhausted by trying to keep track of everything that needed to happen, it gave me the physical rest that I needed to rejuvenate myself to be able to take care of my kids, and the emotional boost necessary to take care of everyone, including myself.
