Living with Multiples

I remember when my husband and I found out that we were pregnant with twins, it was a feeling of excitement, anticipation and of course overwhelming too! We had a 14-month-old at the time and had just gotten past buying all the baby gear and with the news of the twins we quickly realized we needed double of everything! We were so happy to find Joovy products and that they have designed a number of thoughtfully designed twin products to make juggling two babies at the same time possible. Full hands and full hearts has been our motto around our home and Joovy’s twin products have been a lifesaver in helping keep our babies safe and comfortable with their well-thought designs and functional products.

We have found that the Room2 and the Big Caboose have been amazing options with our young family.

Our first trip with our Big Caboose was taking our three boys to the hospital for a nursing consult. Getting out the door with all three was so intimidating and we were so glad there was a stroller out there where all three kids could be sitting and contained. Our two-year-old is so fun and so busy so buckling him into a seat was an essential must when looking for a stroller. I did my research for months looking for the perfect stroller for our situation and the Big Caboose kept coming to the top of my list and I am so glad I chose to go with that one in the end, it has been so functional and convenient.

We use the stroller almost daily. For instance, today I met up with friends and took the kids on a walk around the neighborhood. We also have used it to go on family adventures downtown Dallas (anything outside of the house right now we call an adventure!), we have taken it to many doctors appointments, to a museum, to the park and of course to the grocery store where we always create quite a stir with pushing three babies in one contraption. One bonus while using it at the grocery store is that I can fit a surprising amount of groceries in the bottom storage area. It was laughable how many bags of groceries I pulled out of the bottom storage at the checkout and I was so thankful for it because pushing a stroller and a shopping cart by myself was not and will not be happening anytime soon!

We have also loved the Room2 Playard. I love the genius, oversized design it has as well as the Room2 Twin Nursery Center. We have loved using the Room2 Playard in our living room so that we can know the babies are contained and safe while we live life alongside them being busy cooking up dinner, chasing our two-year-old or changing diapers. The Room2 Twin Nursery Center is also so sensible and well thought. You can change your baby, have your baby sleep in the bassinet portion and play in the playard area below. It has a lot of great options.

If you’re pregnant with multiples, have multiples or have multiple children that are close in age I think Joovy has some amazing options out there to make living life with multiples much more functional!

Cheers,

Heather, mom of Dax & River
