Getting out with twins can sometimes seem stressful. But, believe it or not, it's actually easier than you might imagine to get out with twin babies. You can put them into infant car seats that can then be snapped into a travel system (See our Double Stroller Guide ) for starters. Couple that with all of the sleeping they'll be doing and you're in pretty good shape for a shopping excursion or other errands that don't take very long periods of time. Even just a stroll around the neighborhood or to a nearby park can be great practice for longer journeys.
Going to the grocery store? Think about using baby
hammocks like the ones from Binxy Baby. They can be attached to most
shopping carts and are perfect for keeping twin babies safely contained
and comfortable during your shopping trip.
If you have other siblings involved, they can be a blessing or a curse depending on age. Older siblings tend to be a bit more helpful, while younger ones demand more attention. I know this situation well, as I had a two year old when my twins were born. It took some preparation, but I did indeed get out of the house with all three...And yes, it was much easier when they weren't all running in different directions (especially when I was by myself)! After the first year, it was a different story...I definitely needed help when out and about with twin toddlers and a 4 year old.
Traveling with twins will be much less complicated with some well thought out preparations. Most parents of young twins will tell you that organization is key. Here are some pointers:

Breastfeeding twins together was an interesting experience for me, to say the least. My milk supply, scheduling, positioning, etc. were all different than nursing my singleton.
