1. Re-evaluate your daily happenings. We all know that it’s hard to get out with a baby, and even harder with two or more babies. Mix in less than ideal weather conditions, and you might be better off staying at home.

How crucial is it for you to get out of the house? When possible, have people come to you, which is good advice for all new parents, but even more so if you have winter babies. Can you find a grocer that delivers? Shopping online can be done from the warmth of your home and often enrolling in subscription programs has the added benefit of saving you money on frequent purchases, like diapers and formula.

2. Choose the right garments for your situation.

If it is imperative that you get out of the house, think about where you’ll be going and how much time you’ll be spending in---and out of--the car to determine what type of winter gear in which to invest.

It may be tempting to simplify baby’s winter wardrobe with a cozy all-in-one suit, but this can actually be dangerous for your babies to wear while in their car seats, because it can affect the way the straps fit. You don’t want to end up changing your multiples in and out of their suits each time you get out of the car! You’re better off with warm, but thin layers in fabrics like fleece, thermal and flannel. ---contd. pg. 46 the must-have magazine for all moms of multiples
