Firstly, congratulations!

From your posting, I believe this is not your first. As such, I think you know it is not really possible to encompass all the aspects of becoming a parent. However, you are now probably much more experienced in the whole process.

The only thing I can think of mentioning is that raising twins is not a solo sport; very much a team event. Both parents must be fully involved, preferably with the involvement of the extended family as well.

You are in for an AMAZING life!!

Thank you.

Hopefully everything will be going as plan. Wife mention expect her to go for a ceaser procedure, so need to prepare a month earlier for any sign.

For me it's still early, real headache now to choose a twin stroller laugh.gif

My twins were also delivered via C-section and also a month early. It is quite common for twins.

Suggest you don't rush to buy things. Very often friends and family give these things, and don't be shy to accept hand-me-downs. For infant things they will all be in perfect condition. They will quickly outgrow clothes and accessories much faster than wearing them out.

BTW twin strollers are very good to show off, but are crazy bulky and very often impractical. I got a secondhand unit and didn't even use once! Get two that are as light as possible and can fold small enough to fit two in your car boot.

Yes, i am working abroad. So wife said be home atleast a month earlier just to be safe.

I dont really mind about those baby stuff. Like i said the hardest decision right now to buy the twin stroller, eye on joovy twin roo +, but as you said it is good only as a show off accessories. But to get another two separate stroller means me and my wife will have three stroller to push. Quite inconvenient i guess. rclxub.gif

Just a question, are they identical or fraternal twins? May be too early to check now but just curious...
