We used the bottle warmer like crazy for first 2 months, and almost purchased a second....mainly because we didn't know any better. LOL. Depends on how you are feeding babies and your style. We did exclusively pumped BM at first and it took me a while to figure out that I could pump and then leave out (it can be left out 4-6 hours at room temperature). However, refrigerated and frozen would still need to be warmed. Now I am exclusively BFing. Rarely we will make a formula bottle, but we then make it when we need it. We haven't used the bottle warmer in over a month!
That got me thinking, in order to help those twin-mommas-to-be....what things did those of us that have twins.....need/use two of? wish we had only one? Didn't use at all? Couldn't LIVE WITHOUT TWO?!
Baby carriers? Single? Double? Two?
Nursing pillow? Double?
Pack and play?
What else couldn't you live without?
No "right" answers of course, just opinions and everyone has different styles and needs and desires for their babies. I know that I found it helpful to know what others did and why.
We, to start of, have two cribs, but thus far (at nearly 4 months) we still have both babies in one (and in our room)...although Sofia often still sleeps in the swing, I must confess! We started it because of reflux and it has gotten easy to let her stay there. She will sleep in the crib next to her brother however, and I love watching them cuddle. Not sure how long it will last as Levi is getting quite coordinated. He snatched the paci out of Sofia's mouth the other day and made her cry.
Time will tell, but I am really glad that we have 2 cribs so we have the flexibility.
