Playpens can be a life saver, especially when your twins are a bit older.
Playpens are very versatile and useful for babies. They come in a variety of designs.
Playpens or playards with attachable bassinets are useful at the beginning. You can place the playpen anywhere in the house, and put babies in the bassinet. The bassinet normally can handle the weight of the baby up to 15 lbs. Once they have reached the weight you will lower the palypen mat to the bottom and it can be used up to 30 lbs.
Even though playpens are great day time solutions, they are not recommended to replace the crib for the babies. There are some playpens that come with a changing area as well as diaper organizer. When looking for playards make sure they are sturdy and all sides have mesh on them so you can keep an eye on your babies.
Don’t forget to buy the fitted sheets for playpens.
If you are on a budget, a playpen with a bassinet may be a good alternative for bassinets.
