Twins and Laundry

A couple of weeks before the girls were born I set out to wash the girls clothes so I could have them put away before they arrived.  I was completely overwhelmed by the amount since there were two of everything so I called my mom for help. I was excited about how quickly we were able to get it sorted, washed and put away. However, there are a couple of things I might do different if I am blessed with more children. So here are a couple of tips:

  1. If you have a large amount of clothing, only launder and put away clothing up to 6-9 months and pack away the rest. It is likely those clothes will be for a different season anyway.
  2. Take pictures or pin together outfit pieces because once they are taken out of the dryer, chances are you have forgotten what pieces go together…especially if you have a lot of pink or blue outfits ;)

Now that the girls are older, I have a new issue with laundering their clothes….FOOD. I don’t know about you but I have the messiest baby toddlers when it comes to eating. Food is evil when it comes to clothes. It stains and if you just throw their clothes in the hamper and forget about them until laundry day, it can start to mold. I try to be good about treating their clothes when I take them off but my dear hubby doesn’t always remember to do this when he is doing a clothing change. So here’s what I do:

Twins and Laundry

Keeping a stain remover near their laundry basket is sure to remind us that we need to treat those stains right away (of course if your little ones are mobile and have access to their laundry basket, you’ll want to put the stain remover out of their reach). I also keep a bottle in their bathroom so when hubby does baths, he’ll remember to treat the stains as well.

I have a few items that I have run through the wash twice and still cannot get the stains out. Got any suggestions?

Also, how do you handle your child(ren)’s laundry? We’d love to hear all about it!

Welcome to the new FMBM!

Hello and welcome to our new blog!!

We've been talking about doing this since the beginning but we wanted to see how our little link up would go. We're pretty pleased with the number of MoMs who have participated and hope that you all keep coming back. We have lots more things in store for this blog so we hope you continue to come back link up, and check out the other things/happenings here.

Sometimes when we are living our day to day lives with our twinsies, we often come up with topics that we'd like to post about other than the link up so you will be seeing more posts from us throughout the week so stick around and around for your first visit.

Now, let's talk about this week's topic....starting solid foods. How and when did you start your baby(ies) on solid foods? Did it go ok? Did you make your own? Only use organic? Have you discovered any allergies? Tell us all about it!

**NOTE:  Please link back to your post with this week's topic and not just to your blog so that it's easier to find your post....for those of us who may go back and check out your links later. Thanks!
