If you are expecting twins, you might be wondering what you are going to do when it comes to feeding them. If you will be formula feeding, you’ll definitely need some bottles. Even if your twins will be breast fed, it will be helpful to have bottles so Mom can pump milk and feed them later (or have someone else feed them). Which types of bottles for twins will be best for you? There are several different options to consider.
Hands Free Bottles
Hands Free bottles are a clever invention that make feeding time easier. Models like the Podee Baby Bottle make it easy for your twins to drink without having to hold up the heavy bottle.
This hands free bottle works great for parents of twins. You will be able to hold both of your babies at the same time since you don’t need to hold the bottle. Or you can hold one baby for one feeding and let the other be held on the next feeding.
This type of bottle is also great if you have things you need to get accomplished or are on the go. If you are doing a chore or errand you might find it extremely difficult to be able to hold and feed your child while also getting your daily activities accomplished. Remember that while these types of bottles help your twins feed more easily, they still need help and supervision!
Other Types of Bottles for Twins
There are many other types of bottles out there on the market. You can decide if you would like your twins to use plastic bottles, glass bottles, or the bottles with the bag inserts in them. There are also bottles that are great for babies with colic and gas, but you will only know if you need these specialty bottles after the twins are born.
If your twins have distinct dietary requirements, it will be important to tell their bottles apart. You can buy pink Avent bottles for one baby and use regular clear bottles for the other.
Choosing bottles for your babies is extremely important. You will want to make sure that you think over the situation and find the bottles that will be able to best suit you and your twins.
