Check out Twiniversity founder and CEO Natalie Diaz in Us Weekly, talking about twins (of course!) Nat was featured in the article, “5 Mistakes New Parents of Twins Make After Bringing Their Babies Home“.
Bringing home a newborn is one thing — but taking care of two is quite another. Twiniversity founder Natalie Diaz knows that firsthand, and she shares five common mistakes made by new parents of twins exclusively with Us Weekly.
First things first, it’s vital to stock up on enough supplies! The last thing moms and dads want to do is run out of diapers, wipes and formula because they underestimated their infants. “You don’t need to start using baby clothes to clean up doody,” Diaz tells Us. Instead, she recommends always having 150 diapers, an unopened case of wipes and a week’s worth of formula on hand at all times.
Taking care of one newborn, let alone two, takes some serious energy, which is why the twin expert, who has helped out The View‘s Abby Huntsman with her twin prep, is all about napping. Instead of sleeping when the babies sleep, “grab a nap when visitors come over,” she says. “People aren’t coming to see you.” That way, parents can catch some z’s while their “babies are safe with people” who love them. It’s a win-win!
