My sister in law is having twins.  We're invited to her showers and I'm at a loss as to what to buy.  I know all of the things that have been most helpful to us thus far:  Velcro swaddles, bouncy seats, high end baby swing, boob like bottles, quantities of clothing and swaddles that stretch my laundry intervals, etc.  What I don't know is, what things might be uniquely helpful to parents of twins?  She's registered for everything and the kitchen sink but it completely open to whatever she receives.  HELP moms of multiples!  I know you're out there!

Teething Mess

Will is already teething- at 3 months!  Holy buds!

He's been drooling up a storm- I had always wondered what those flimsy cotton bibs were for...and now I understand.

He's had been cranky or screaming each evening and for bouts in the morning.  We were afraid he was getting sick or we had a late onset of colic.  In a brief moment of desperation this morning I grabbed a teether from the refridgerator.  I'm not sure I've ever seen his mood change so fast!  Nom nom nom on the cold brought about an all out smile.

Modern Art Diapers?

I'm not sure if I've ever fully conveyed my love of contemporary/modern art here.  Our house is covered in works by Janet's amazing father, Bill- an engineer turned meditating monoprint artist.  We spend time art show hopping in our hood and attending openings with Janet's parents.  During Will's first 10 days of life, he attended Bill's gallery opening. 

I also enjoy wearable art- I dig hand dyed stuff, funky t-shirts, scarves, etc.  This is where art diapers enter in.  BumGenius, the maker of BG 4.0's and Flip, just introduced Art prints.  I'm in love.  My prior review of the BG's- well, now they get extra points, big time.  My kidlet, will now have wearable art in the form of the coolest diapers ever.  I've gone out and purchased one of each.
