21 useful (and adorable!) gifts for parents expecting multiples

I'm currently expecting twins so I've done a lot of research (more hours than I want to admit to anyone) on the best products for twin babies and toddlers. This gift guide will give you options on what to get parents of multiples, whether a mama is currently pregnant or their littles are infants—and beyond. And remember, having multiple babies does not mean that parents need duplicates of *everything.* Most families likely already have the basics (car seat and bassinets) taken care of so these are all the cute extras they'll love to have.

Here are the best products for multiple babies:

Lalo high chair 

I chose this chair over the other gazillion ones available because once your children outgrow the high chair mode, this turns into a toddler play chair, which gives your investment a way longer life than other feeding chairs. It's also super stylish and modern without compromising any of the safety needs for little ones.

$195

TwinGo carrier

I love baby wearing because it's so beneficial for everyone involved, however one parent cannot carry two babies in regular carriers. Enter: TwinGo, the one carrier in the market that allows you to wear two babies at the same time. It's ideal for parents who will be solo with two kids, and after some practice, it's as easy to use as any other carrier.

$215

Table for two seat

This ingenious seat for two is key for one parent to be able to bottle-feed two infants at the same time. It's also safe to strap babies in there while the bottles are being prepared. The cover comes in different colors and it's water-resistant for easy cleaning. Plus, there's a bottle holder on each side so parents won't need to worry about mixing the bottles up. Genius!

$279

Uppababy Vista stroller 

The Vista is the only UPPAbaby stroller that allows you to configure it to push up to three kids at the same time. You can have two bassinets, two car seats or two rumble seats (depending at what stage your kids are). Pro tip: Add a kickboard for an older child to stand on. Babies will be positioned vertically instead of next to each other, which make the Vista a great stroller for city parents as it easily goes through doors and entrances.

$1109

4moms mamaRoo swing

Both parents of singletons and multiples recommend having one baby swing or rocker to put down baby safely to be able to do something else. The mamaRoo has been a favorite in the parenting world because of the soothing settings it has. Keep in mind, this is not a sleep device so do not use overnight or leave your baby unattended in it. Pro tip: You can add a newborn insert and toys to keep your little one entertained and calm for hours.

$249

Humble Bee diaper bag 

This is hands down my favorite diaper bag out there and it's great for all parents, whether you have one or three. Some of our favorite features? It's super spacious, water-resistant, has an insulated pocket to prevent milk spoiling, clips easily into any stroller and the changing pad is next level—store diapers and wipes together so you don't need to carry the entire bag for a changing.

$59.95

Baby Brezza formula mixer 

If you know you are going to formula or combo feed the Baby Brezza is a must-have. This contraption makes bottles in less than 30 seconds (which in the middle of the night with screaming babies can be a lifesaver). You can set the amount of water, the type of formula and let the machine do its thing. I personally love that I never have to worry about having clots in the bottle—it's always the perfect consistency.

$203.61

Comotomo bottle set 

Speaking of bottle feeding, this Comotomo bottle set is fabulous for parents of multiple newborns. You can get it in two different colors (pink and green) to help differentiate between which baby gets what bottle (which I think is a great idea for identical twins) and the wide nipple resembles a breast, helping babies switch easily from bottle to boob if you choose.

$59.99

Lively Mesh Trim Maternity Bralette

There are so many breastfeeding bras out there, but trust me when I say this is my absolute favorite. The second I put it on, I felt three million times better. The material is softer so it doesn't make nipples itch. The cute is flattering and sexy, and does not make your boobs look like a shapeless blob. Plus, I love the details like the mesh around the cups and the overlap in fabric that covers your full breast.

$35

My Breast Friend nursing pillow

Breastfeeding pillows are great because they help mom distribute the weight of baby. This pillow is designed specifically for twins, allowing mom to put one baby at each breast. If you're looking for just one, we're obsessed with this one that we created with all mamas in mind.

$64.99

Wireless Elvie double pump 

This double pump is hands-free and super quiet. You place it inside your bra, allowing you to move around and do other things while pumping. Each bottle holds up to 5-ounces and are dishwasher-safe. As someone who pumped for 6 months and felt very limited while being attached to one for 30-40 minutes at a time, this is glorious.

$499.99

Thule jogging double stroller 

This running stroller is ideal for adventurous parents as it performs well in all terrains. The canopies are separate so you can keep one baby shaded while the other takes in the view. The seats can also recline independently, allowing you to customize for your littles. Bonus: It folds super easily and it's great to maneuver around the city or the country!

$699.95

Tossits bags

If you ask me, every parent should have these in their car. It's so easy for cars to get messy and stinky with children and Tossits comes to the rescue. You attach the bags to the back of the passenger's seat and once your children are done with their snack, you (or them) can toss the garbage in a bag. Once the bag is full or the trip is over, simply rip the full bag and throw it in the trash at destination.

$15.99

TwinZ pillow 

This pillow is perfect to have your littles lounge next to each other, letting you be more hands-free. Once they are ready, they can also do tummy time together. Or you can put it on your lap and have both babies snuggle with you at the same time. Remember, this is not safe for sleep so do not leave a baby snoozing unattended.

$139.99

Boob breastfeeding shirt

This boob design shirt allows for easy access to the breasts for pumping or breastfeeding. Their garments are well-designed for moms to be able to feed their children without having to hassle and fight with their clothes. I chose this one in particular for twin moms because it has a secret message when you look at yourself in the mirror.😉

$69

Ever Eden lifting + firming lotion 

All birthing bodies deserve a little pampering, but especially bodies of those carrying multiples—after all, bringing a human (or two) into this world is just magical. This evereden lotion is soft, soothing and makes your skin feel incredibly refreshed.

$42

DockATot lounger

This is great to safely put babies down while you're relaxing on the couch or pumping. You can also purchase a toy arc for it to turn into a play mat as they get a little older. It's not meant for co-sleeping or safe sleeping so don't leave babies unattended in these.

$195

Twins On Board car sign

Driving around with little ones can be stressful, so adding this sign to your car will allow others to know that there are two little babies with you.

$6.84

Baby Monitor + two cameras

When I was a first-time mom, I thought I could get away with just an audio monitor, which we did while baby was an infant, but as soon as he could sit or stand up, it was clear we needed a camera monitor. So I recommend starting from the beginning with one that will last you forever.

$116.99

Shopping cart hammock

If one of the parents needs to do a shopping run solo with the twins, these shopping cart hammocks are absolutely the best. You can have both babies visible, while still having full access to toss groceries into the cart. Note: They are only good until babies start to sit up by themselves.

$49.95

Bath Time book for twins

This is just a cute book to have around to read to your kids about every day tasks, like bath time. 🛁

$6.99

One of my biggest jobs as a mama is to create a foundation for my kids to become trailblazers and problem-solvers. It's not an easy task. I'm constantly wondering what type of person they'll become and how I can ensure they'll be awesome citizens of the world. For me, part of raising and encouraging future leaders starts with exposure—the more I introduce them to notable leaders in history, the better they can envision their own future.

This is why I love when brands create inspirational clothing and accessories for kids. And this month, Piccolina, a lifestyle brand for littles, added an exclusive Black History Month capsule collection to their trailblazer tees series and they are too cute for words.

The Black History Month line honors heroic leaders like Harriet Tubman, Maya Angelou, Katherine Johnson and Rosa Parks on colorful tees. It even features illustrations by emerging artists of color like Monica Ahanonu, Erin Robinson and Joelle Avelino who are, in my opinion, just as important.

In addition to the tops, the collection features art prints that coincide with the shirts, making this a perfect addition to any kids room—and even mama's office. Perhaps even more exciting are the price points: The limited-edition tees retail for $28 and framed art prints are $60.

Maya Angelou trailblazer tee

Maya Angelou trailblazer tee

This cotton tee features a portrait of the award-winning author, poet and civil rights activist and is the perfect way for your little one to celebrate her inner storyteller. A portion of the shirts proceeds benefit non-profit organizations that support girls' education and empowerment, such as the Malala Fund and Step Up.

$28

While I'm not sure what type of person my little ones will become, I'm certain that introducing them to leaders will help them have greater self-confidence and reinforce that they are competent and resilient, too. And what mama can't get behind that? Now the hardest part is deciding which ones to purchase.

I'm usually that girl who shells out for premium leggings, and I still think they're fun as a treat, but I've now bought these so-called "compression" leggings in multiple colors. And since 74% of you told us in a recent Instagram poll that you live in leggings, we hope this practical hot tip can help make #momlife a little easier for you, too.

So why compression? While we'd never advise going to extremes, we're not opposed to a little help keeping everything in place. To be clear, this isn't about hiding—we're all for celebrating our bodies (and especially our bellies) at every stage. But adapting to an ever-changing shape can be distracting, and a little extra support around the stomach and hips can feel amazing after birth and help you focus on what's important.

What these $20 leggings have on even my most expensive pairs is that they are thickmeaning they don't snag in the wash, sheer out when I squat, or (heaven forbid) rip when I bend over. Their durability makes them perfect for both household chores and high-intensity workouts. They're also warm, making them well-suited for transitioning between seasons. And once your wardrobe fully changes over, the same brand makes compression shorts that are equally comfy.

Homma Premium Thick High Waist Tummy Compression Slimming Leggings

As for the whole compression thing? Once they're on, I honestly don't notice anything but how flattering they are when I catch my reflection in the mirror. The 88% Nylon, 12% Spandex blend keeps it tight without feeling, well, too tight. Think of the compression like a gentle hug, or a guardian angel that just wants to bless your curves all day long. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to order another pair.

I admit it: We struggle with screen time in my house. My 4-year-old is a rambunctious consumer of entertainment and most of his beloved forms come in the mini screen of my cell phone. I do, however, do my best to fill that screen with the most educational kid's apps that exist, and one of his favorites is the world of Sago Mini. Their apps are fun, playful, and yes, help him learn something too.

So imagine our excitement when we found out that Sago Mini is bringing that experience offline with an IRL kid's toy subscription service that sends open-ended toys to you about once a month. The service officially launched Tuesday, February 18th and it's perfect for kids aged 3-5. It costs about $19 a month or $15 a month if you pay for an annual subscription.

The Sago Mini box

The first set of boxes will have planes, road trip and fairy tales themes. ✨The box we tried was road-trip themed and it came with everything your little needs to get off the phone and into their imagination. I loved that even the box itself can be turned into a toy by disassembling it and rebuilding it inside out. Because we all know that sometimes our kid's favorite toy ends up being the box it was shipped in!

The kit comes with three make and play activities, all designed to build off each other. For example, our road trip box came with a felt "road" that my son loved draping all over the furniture, and a cardboard car with wooden wheels in one activity pack. Then the second activity pack had destinations your child can "drive" their car to like Grandma's house, school and a gas station.

I especially appreciated that they kept an eye on sustainability (and cute design!) when creating these play materials. All the paper materials that come in the box are made from recycled goods or sourced from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC certified). The best part? My son played with his set for a good few hours—and never asked for my phone once.

Wouldn't it be nice to throw on mascara and instantly look well-rested? Let's set the scene: You've been up all night caring for your sick toddler and you look extremely tired. You quickly apply a waterproof, lengthening and volumizing mascara and poof—tired eyes begone. Sounds like a magic trick, right? But we have a few mascaras in our makeup bag that can do just that, mama.

These are our favorite mascaras to use that make us look well-rested and ready to conquer the day, even if we're running on just a few hours:

Tarte surfer curl mascara

Tarte surfer curl mascara

Whether you're prepping for hot yoga, a day at the beach, or just keeping up with the kiddos, Tarte's latest mascara is perfect for a mamas active lifestyle. It's a vitamin E- based mascara that delivers sweatproof, weightless volume without the clumps. Pro tip: Just do the top lashes for a more natural look.

$23

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna full frontal volume, lift + curl mascara

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna full frontal volume, lift + curl mascara

This popular mascara was designed to deliver Rihanna's full lash look, and we must admit, after three applications, our lashes turned out thicker and fuller than ever. The key to this formula is that it's paired with aflat-to-fat brush that customizes what you need. The fat side holds lots of product to quickly load and lift lashes, while the flat side defines and curls each lash.

$24

Maybelline lash sensational mascara

Maybelline lash sensational mascara

Not ready to spend loads of money on a beauty product? We hear you. That's why we love this liquid ink formula from Maybelline. It coats from all sides for full coverage with a featherlight feel. Just be careful with your application—it requires a good makeup remover to remove.

$9.99

L'Oréal voluminous lash paradise mascara

L'Or\u00e9al voluminous lash paradise mascara

If a deep black color is what you're after, this mascara will get you there in the best way possible. The soft wavy bristle brush gives lots of volume and the 200 bristles catch every lash for a full fringe effect. No, seriously—get the results you crave in only two coats!

$10.99

Stila Cosmetics magnum xxx mascara

Stila Cosmetics magnum xxx mascara

Suffer from thin, straight lashes that never seem to curl? This creamy, non-clumping formula is buildable and gives instant volume. It's also pretty cool that the blossom-shaped fiber wand is carved in a curved silhouette that dispenses just the right amount of formula on each individual lash for lots of volume.

$23

Marc Jacobs velvet noir major volume mascara

Marc Jacobs velvet noir major volume mascara

When we heard that this mascara was inspired by Marc Jacobs' first beauty memory of his mother shaving fibers from a velvet ribbon to create her own faux lashes, we knew this was something special. This mascara gives smudge-proof length and volume in three strokes or less.

$27

IT Cosmetics superhero mascara

 IT Cosmetics superhero mascara

If black mascara leaves you with raccoon eyes by the end of the day, this mascara might be your new bestie. Developed with plastic surgeons, and clinically tested, it provides both length and volume in one coat. Also, the formula contains collagen, biotin and peptides to condition your lashes as you coat.

$24

Too Faced better than sex waterproof mascara

Too Faced better than sex waterproof mascara

Without question, the original better than sex mascara lives up to its name, and the waterproof feature on this one is an added bonus. The hourglass-shaped brush was designed with extra stiff bristles to maximize the performance of this super black, collagen-fueled formula. But, once on your lashes, prepare to rub for a long time to get it off.

$25

Lancôme monsieur big mascara

Lanc\u00f4me Monsieur big mascara

This is one of Lancôme's bestselling mascaras and we get why. For starters, it's a creamy formula with a gel-like texture that does not require touch-ups. It also brings a ton of volume, without the flaking.

$25
