    We're having twins!!

    I am a quad...i feel normal(whatever that it!)...but now I have a new thing that I will be dealing with. My wife is preggers with twins...No I know I'm not gonna really physically change, but Im looking for other days that are quads or just use a wheelchair. I wanna know what works best like car seats and stuff like that... what is the hardest thing...I know I dont know all the questions I have because if you've never done something you cant say good or bad so any advise is welcomed and needed...

    signed excited, but scared dad to be

        not a dad, just wanted to say congrats

                Congratulations indeed.

                From my experience, your friends will never see you again. If you sail, you're sailing buddies will never see you again. That's happened to several of my quad father friends. You see them rarely but you'll have two beautiful kids to hang out with instead.

                        My wife and I are on our 8th month with twins.



                        My advice, run now and run far!!

                        Seriously though, it's a trip. Time flies. I have a thread here with pictures of cribs we had made, I would suggest something like them as changing diapers and clothes is a lot easier to do when you can roll under the crib.

                        I carry one of the boys in a car seat with a bungy cord around me and thru the handle on seat. Failproof.

                          Congrats!! I'm a C6/7 father of 3 (20 month, 3 and 5 year-old) and have learned a lot over the years from this forum.

                          A couple of things you'll need are an accessible crib and changing table. I've seen a few different designs and ideas and ended up using a crib with swing out doors and a card table for a changing table.




                          Something else that is challenging is picking up and putting down your child from a swing, sofa, crib, floor mat, car seat, etc... What worked great for me was a cotton with nylon strap stork bag.
