Two times the children can be twice as nice, but it can also mean double the gear and commotion. Salvage mama's posture by lightening the load with a few simple tricks.

Whether a house is tending to share care buddies, twins, or tots of different ages, there are lightweight buggies that can make strolls to the park a breeze. Instead of packing a hefty diaper bag, parents can keep two small diaper changing kits in a large bag to keep the sizes separate. Expectant mamas with multiples on the way may want to invest in a play yard that has two bassinets to make for speedy diaper changes and separate slumbers. On that same note, trundle beds are space savers that keep parents and kiddos happy.
