What kind of stroller can I get for newborn twins and a 28 month-old that could fit in an…?

…Accord trunk?
I would like to be able to keep my Accord if the automobile seats will all fit. I think they might. The Joovy Huge Caboose is too huge to fit in the trunk. The Valco twin with a toddler jump seat will not hold two infant seats. Needing to hold the infant seats is a must. I am not waking sleeping TWINS to put them in a stroller. I think a 28 month-old is too young to stand on one of those boogie board attachments (she runs off…FAST). I would LOVE to find something similar to a boogie board attachment that included a bench and seat belt, but I do not know if it exists.

Have you seen this yet? http://www.amazon.com/Buggypod-Smorph2-Clip-Side-Stroller/dp/B003TL2H1C

http://www.amazon.com/Litaf-Pick-Up-Universal-Stroller-Rider/dp/B003XIQCX0/ref=pd_sbs_ba_2 This one I like (has no seatbelt) but it would grant you to get a side by side double stroller and is a tiny cheaper.

WHAT IS A GOOD BOOK WITH GOOD METHODS TO HELP A BABY SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT? http://birthpolicy.org/309/what-is-a-good-book-with-good-methods-to-help-a-baby-sleep-through-the-night/ http://birthpolicy.org/309/what-is-a-good-book-with-good-methods-to-help-a-baby-sleep-through-the-night/#comments Wed, 03 Nov 2010 07:29:02 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/309/what-is-a-good-book-with-good-methods-to-help-a-baby-sleep-through-the-night/ Question by ACF:
What is a good book with good methods to help a baby sleep through the night?

My twin boys are nearly 7 months and not sleeping through the night. Their sleep seems to be restless. They do wake for a bottle about 1x each, but they also just wake to wake and I or my husband have to rock them back to sleep. With 2 babies I dont know how much more I can take. I know they can sleep through the night because they done it before, I just need it to be each night instead of once in awhile. What are some good books with good methods? I dont want to do the cry it out method because they will wake each other up and I know my babies…it just wont work..they will just get so upset and thats it. I heard of the book “BabyWise” but heard bad reviews about this method. What else can I do? Please help

Oh, I here ya! My baby has the hardest time sleeping at night and I dont know why! Have you ever heard of the nanny jo frost? I saw a thing on tv the other day that she has a book out. I am not sure the name of it I think its like the confident baby. I am going to check into it. She speaks about sleeping and a lot of other stuff.

TWIN INFANTS SLEEP DURING THE DAY, NOT AT NIGHT….? http://birthpolicy.org/273/twin-infants-sleep-during-the-day-not-at-night/ http://birthpolicy.org/273/twin-infants-sleep-during-the-day-not-at-night/#comments Fri, 29 Oct 2010 07:54:08 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/273/twin-infants-sleep-during-the-day-not-at-night/ Question by andrew:
Twin infants sleep during the day, not at night….?

My wife and I had twin boys nearly two months ago. When we finally got them home we realized they really like to eat and be awake a lot at night. They generally eat each 2-3 hours during the night and around 4 hours during the day.
We always have the lights on during the day with music or the tv playing. At night we turn the lights out. We have tried leaving lights on and/or music going at night also thinking it might comfort them but no luck.
We tried giving them baths shortly before bed hoping to help tire them out.
I know they are going to eat when they want but it’s been really hard on my wife since I work during the night. Thank you all for any ideas!

Answer by mennyd
I follow a loose schedule during the day to “switch” my babies. I will usually wake them each 3 hours during the day. This takes a tiny time, but in a couple of weeks, they are usually in a normal day/night pattern.
