Finding out that you are expecting multiples can be both joyful and overwhelming. From double duty on diapers to bottles to night feedings, getting ready for twins (or more) requires some extra preparations and planning. And although it's twice the work, it's also twice the fun when it comes to the rewards of two beautiful babies.
Here are five moms of multiples sharing what they've learned from their real-life experiences of raising twin babies.
Kids: Sawyer and Jaxon, 20 months
What are the challenges of having multiples? With twins, no sooner do you figure out a solution to a challenge and then something changes and a new challenge presents itself. I figured out how to get both babies down our four-story walk-up and out to our detached garage and then they outgrew the infant carriers and I was back to square one. Prepare to think outside the box. There are countless things that are harder with twins, but I have yet to come across a situation that I couldn't figure out with a little ingenuity and creativity.
