5 great tips for parents with twins!

These beautiful twins we bring you today are just the cutest duo in the studio. They are identical, it’s like someone copied and pasted one of them into the other!

Having twins is a magical experience and can also be very demanding and a stressful journey the first years, but it’s also rewarding, just like any other pregnancy. Check out these beautiful photos from Tracy Gabbard’s Photography Studio below.

  1. Definitely Sync Their Schedules

Getting your twins on the same eating and sleeping schedule is essential. Otherwise it will just be double work for you.

  1. Don’t Separate Older Twin Babies

When your twins are sleeping through the night, you might want you to put them in separate rooms, so they won’t wake each other up. But that will only teach them to rely on total silence to stay asleep. They need to learn to sleep through everything, even their own crying.

  1. Meet Other Twin Parents

There are multiple social groups that you can find around you and it could be helpful. Visit the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs.

  1. Don’t Double Up on Absolutely Everything

Of course, you will need two car seats, cribs and other essentials, but having twin babies does not mean that you must buy everything twice, mix it up a little bit too! They probably have different personalities and like different toys.

  1. Buy Your Baby Essentials Online

Twin babies go through diapers, wipes and other everyday items at the speed of light. To help with your everyday life, you could use great online stores like Amazon, Ebay and others that will deliver everything to your doorstep. And that’s a huge advantage!

3 Caring Tips For Your Baby’s Feet Plus The Cutest Tiny Feet Close Ups!

As humans, one of our most important assets in life are our feet. We start from the beginning, crawling and sitting up until we are able to start walking and taking steps in life. And most of us are lucky to have two legs and two feet. Today we are grateful for that and we want to show you how beautiful these close ups can be and on top of that, some tips to keep your baby’s feet healthy!

According to the American Pediatric Medical Association (APMA), by the time we reach 65, she will have walked more than 100,000 miles. That’s why it’s important to take your baby’s feet care as a priority. Start them off on the right foot (literally) by taking proper care of their little feet and understanding the possible problems that can affect them.

Here are some tips to take proper care of their beautiful tiny feet from the beginning.

  1. Your baby’s new feet may be blue, wrinkled, and peeling like much of the rest of his body after nine months in a cocoon of protective fluid. Be assured, however, that his feet will recover the normal tone and fill out as soon as he gets warm.
  2. Before they take their first steps, babies need to develop proper strength in their legs to carry their own body weight, as well as the confidence to stand on their own two feet. While many parents look to the first birthday as the target date for this major milestone, the average age when children begin walking closer to 12 to 15 months.
  3. It can be very difficult to resist the temptation to put cute little shoes on your baby’s feet, but they can be an obstruction to growing feet properly. Shoes that are too restrictive don’t allow for normal toe and foot motion.

And of course, Tracy will be more than happy to invite you to her Studio in the Tampa Bay area for beautiful sessions where you will be able to capture your child’s feet while they are still tiny and fuzzy. Don’t miss this opportunity, contact us now for a free appointment for more information about Tracy’s Photography services.
