Siblings Day has fallen, which means it's the perfect time to celebrate the bond between brothers, sisters and everything in-between - And what better way to do that than to share some of our best products for families with twins or two under twos?

At Natural Baby Shower, we understand that having young siblings - or even twins for that matter - can be tricky, which is why we've put together a list of our favourite eco-friendly baby products that are perfect for some double trouble! 

From the UPPAbaby Vista V2 to the Bugaboo Donkey 5, here are some of our top picks that should be on your watchlist...

Best pushchairs

Pushchairs should be first on your list when you have more than one little one in tow. They're the perfect on the go storage solution for you, plus provide a safe and comfortable mode of travelling for them! Here are some of the leading pushchairs we think you should consider: 

1. UPPAbaby Vista V2

The UPPAbaby Vista V2 is a fantastic stroller for parents of twins. With a convertible design, it can hold up to three children, making it perfect for growing families.

The stroller comes with a bassinet that is suitable for newborns and can be converted into a toddler seat if you're expecting twins - or maybe twins run in the family! Plus, with a large storage basket, you can easily carry all your baby essentials.

2. Bugaboo Donkey 5

The Bugaboo Donkey 5 is another great option for parents of twins or siblings. This stroller can be quickly converted from a single stroller to a double stroller - also known as mono to duo, making it a versatile choice for bigger families.

It has a spacious under-seat basket and side basket options, so you can store everything you need while you're out and about. Plus, thanks to its large wheels and accessories options, it's a great everyday pushchair right from day one!

3. Babyjogger City Tour Double

For the parents of two or twins the Baby Jogger City Tour 2 Double Stroller is fantastic for sibling interaction as a side-by-side buggy. It's a fantastic jogging buggy but better yet, at only 66.5cm wide and 10.5kg light, it's easy to navigate through doorways or store it away when done!

There's no need to worry about sunny days either as a UV 50+ canopy complete with peek-a-boo windows will have their backs every step along the way - cosy 'n cool indeed!

Keep up with two children of varying ages in the BABYZEN YOYO Connect! This unique tandem set-up provides all you need to support both kids, while remaining compact and lightweight.

With a smooth push due to its flexible frames that can be folded or unfolded without breaking a sweat, this bundle will make your parenting experience easy and enjoyable. Transform it into either a double solution as needed - hooking onto the back of the frame if used as single stroller – making every step effortless.


Best carriers

Equally, carriers make a fabulous addition when you've got both hands full with two under two's! Depending on whether you've got a young one who loves the closeness of babywearing, or you're sharing the load with your other half, carriers range right from newborn to toddlerhood giving them a perfect shelf life for your growing family. Here are a few we love...

5. Ergobaby Omni 360

The Ergobaby Omni 360 Carrier has been created to provide an easy and comfortable experience for both parent and their little one. Crafted from 100% cotton fabric, the carrier enables four supportive carry positions that have padded shoulder straps plus lumbar support - all designed with hip-healthy M shape positioning in mind so your little one feels secure throughout their growth journey from newborn through toddlerhood.

6. Freerider Co. wraps

For parents with a newborn, the Freerider Co.Wrap range can give both parent and baby an incredibly comfortable experience while encouraging bonding - all thanks to its lightweight breathability. Studies have even found that babies carried in wraps cry 43% less!

Not just comforting: these wraps are also eco-friendly too. Made of 100% Tencel fibres, this carrier is softer than silk on your skin and won't rub or chafe you when worn for long periods either – so you know once it’s tied up properly it will stay secure while you entertain your other little loves.

7. SnuzKot Mode Cot Bed

For a unique look growing with your little one through their formative years, the SnuzKot Mode Cot Bed is perfect. It's designed to comfortably carry both newborns and toddlers, holding all the way until they reach 10 years old using interchangeable bedsides and extensions kits. 

The base also has three separate heights for easy access that'll help prevent any mishaps while you take them out of the cot! This also means you can use with either child as they start to grow.


Hacks for parents of twins

  • Establish a routine: Having a routine can make life with twins more manageable. Try to set a schedule for feeding, sleeping, and playtime, and stick to it as much as possible.
  • Take turns: If you have a partner, taking turns can help make caring for twins more manageable. Divide tasks like feeding, changing, and putting the babies to sleep, so you each get some rest.
  • Invest in sustainable products: At Natural Baby Shower, we believe in sustainable and eco-friendly baby products. Choosing products made from organic materials or recycled materials can help reduce your environmental impact while also benefiting your babies.

In conclusion, preparing for the arrival of twins or managing young siblings can be overwhelming, but with the right baby products and a few parent hacks, you can make life more manageable!
