Twin Love Concierge Twin Tip – Are you worried about your Twins health with germs? Don’t get caught up in having separate things for each baby as far as ‘germs’ are concerned. Twins and other multiples are in such close proximity to each other all the time that their germs are permanently shared! Creating more stress for yourself having to permanently separate baby items is not necessary and can cause unnecessary angst at home with partners. New twin parents have enough to worry about!

What we do however suggest when first buying for the babies is that you color code everything such as:

-Bottles

– Pacifiers

– Sippy Cups

At the end of the day your babies are going to grab whichever is closest first. The color coding is more useful for you knowing who is drinking what initially, who likes the Pacifier more etc.

The exception to this rule however is when the babies first come home where keeping germs at bay is the most important for their health. All visitors MUST wash their hands and everyone handling the babies ideally should be appropriately vaccinated. Please consult your Pediatrician for detailed health information or consult the American Academy of Pediatrics website.
