We spoke with an Evenflo Feeding Inc. member about what to expect at this year’s Baby Show!

What should expectant and new parents know about your brand?
We are a female-led organization that is on a mission to ensure better care for every baby by providing families with a quality, innovative products, at a price that does not break the bank. Regardless of wealth or status or community, we are true believers that EVERY family should be able to have the feeding journey they want to have.

What’s new (in the past year) with your brand?
Last year we launched our Balance + Wide Bottle—it is pretty amazing and over 90% of parents are recommending it. We received so much positive feedback on the bottle, that we have designed a new Balance + Pacifier to compliment. Designed to encourage proper tongue placement and movement without interfering with mom’s personal breast-feeding journey, our Balance + Stage 1 Pacifier is perfect for babies 0-6 months. The cylindrical shape helps promotes tongue cupping, mimicking what baby does while breast feeding.

We are also launching our new Advanced Milk Storage Bags! Our bags feature military-grade material developed for superior strength. With a leak resistant design and wider side seals, you can feel confident that your liquid gold is secure. The bag features a tear-off, pour spout top, and a secure bottom for a stable, upright position when filling and still freezes flat.

What is your most popular product right now?
Do we have to pick just one?! We have a few products that are really popular right now!

Our full-time use Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump is a must-have. This hospital strength pump is a closed system, meaning that no breast milk gets into the tubing. Our pump comes with multiple flange sizes and has independent speed and suction control, allowing mom to get the most out of her pumping sessions. We also know that when you first start pumping, that it can be very overwhelming. So we include free access to two full length digital classes presented by Shari Criso, IBCLC, CNM, RN. This pump can be powered via cord or battery, so it is great at home or on-the-go!

Another parent favorite (as it is recommended by over 90% of them!) is our Balance + Bottle. Developed by pediatric feeding experts, the gradual sloped nipple shape and slow flow rate allow for a proper latch and a comfortable drinking pace for baby. The venting technology reduces the potential for colic, reflux, gas, and fussiness. And bonus, it is only four pieces (including the cap) so it is super easy to clean!

Why should Baby Show attendees stop by your booth at the New York Baby Show in 2018?
Our AMAZING team–Elise, Lauren and Christina–will be at the show to talk all things feeding. We will also have baby expert, Shari Criso, with us and speaking both days. Of course we will have all of our latest and greatest products from breast pumps to bottles. We may even have a few to giveaway!

Quick Twin Tips For Parents-To-Be

Quick Twin Tips For Parents-To-Be

Twin babies having fun on a studio white floor

Congratulations! Instead of the traditional one bun in the oven, you’re expecting a pair. Yes, it’s overwhelming. Yes, it’s a tad bit scary. But you just hit the parenting lotto! Now if you could only hit the real lotto to pay for those college tuitions, we’d be all set.

I want to introduce myself. I’m Natalie Diaz, founder of Twiniversity.com and author of What To Do When You’re Having Two, the bestselling book for expectant twin parents. What? You don’t have a copy? No worries! I’m going to give you some quick tips today and you can Google me later. For now…on with the tips!

Stay Positive:

A twin pregnancy has a lot more challenges than a singleton pregnancy and often has some additional bumps in the road. Stay on top of the bumps and ask plenty of questions at your doctors’ appointments so you’re always on top of things. A support network is key, so connecting to your local twins club is a must (and if you don’t have a local twins club, you have us here at Twiniversity). Having real twin parents to talk to who’ve been there and done that will help ease your fears on what twin parents consider “normal” when it comes to pregnancy. I’ll warn you now, you’ll have more doctor’s appointments, more ultrasounds, and more tests than an expectant singleton family, but realize that most of it is totally typical in a multiple birth, so don’t get worried.

Start Shopping:

With the average twin pregnancy lasting around 36 weeks, you won’t have as much time to prepare as your friends who are expecting one. Do your homework on strollers, car seats, cribs, mattresses and more. Twiniversity’s expecting twins classes were made to help you prepare, and a full suggested registry list can be found in my book as well. Start with a realistic budget and try to stay within it. Often folks think that twins are double the cost, and while that can be true, there are A lot of ways to save, including buying from companies with Multiple Birth Discount programs. Did you know that many major retailers offer a discount to twin families for buying two of the same large item, such as cribs and car seats? Yup! It’s true.

Get Ready to Play 20 Questions:

When your friends, family, and even strangers find out you’re expecting two, get ready for the questions! They will want to know if they are girls or boys, if you’re planning to deliver vaginally or via C-section, and more. After the birth, people will always ask: “Who was first?” and they will ask you if your clearly fraternal boy/girl twins are “identical” (that one is my personal favorite). When people see twins, they lose their natural socially acceptable filter and start asking some deeply personal questions. Don’t be shocked to hear from a stranger on the bus: “Whose sperm did you use?” “Where did you get the eggs?” and more. Yup, it’s going to be a wild ride.

Celebrate:

When we first found out there was a second heartbeat, my husband’s first words were: “We have to move!” Literally. I’m not joking. It was hard to celebrate the awesomeness of our twin pregnancy when our minds were racing 10 steps ahead. We were thinking about living arrangements, finances, our car, and even our dog. We were thinking that everything would have to change, and wondering if we could even handle it. It took us a while to step back and celebrate with our friends and family and toast our joyful expectant delivery. Everything did fall into place. We did eventually step back and take a breath, but I had wished we did it sooner.

These are just some quick tips to get you on your way. If you don’t have it yet, I strongly recommend you get our book and check out a local in-person class if you’re in NYC or Chicago, or an online class anywhere else in the world. Cheers to you and your upcoming bundles of joy!

Natalie Diaz is the founder of Twiniversity—the world’s leading twin resource and support network for parents of twins or more—which offers a selection of classes and resources. She is also the author of What To Do When You’re Having Two: The Twins Survival Guide From Pregnancy Through the First Year.

5 Lessons For Your Second Pregnancy

5 Lessons For Your Second Pregnancy

Portrait of young pregnant attractive woman, standing by the window, dressed in casual clothing, day before due date

When I found out I was expecting a second child I almost couldn’t believe it. It was the day before my husband and I were throwing a New Year’s Eve party at our house and I was sure the at-home pregnancy test would read negative. My husband and I always wanted multiple children, but after a miscarriage last winter and nearly a year of trying without any luck, I thought secondary infertility might be the hand we were dealt. I had no pregnancy symptoms that raw December morning and didn’t want to deal with the disappointment of another negative test, but I figured I’d take it just to make sure. I was planning on enjoying my share of champagne, wine, and cured meats the next evening to help ease some of the holiday-induced stress. As luck would have it though, I found myself sipping sparkling water and suppressing a pregnancy-induced smile throughout the party.

This pregnancy started out much like the first, with equal parts disbelief and joy coursing their way through my body as I tried to wrap my mind around the idea that I was growing a poppy seed-sized embryo. But within a few short weeks, I quickly realized this pregnancy would be very different. Here’s what I learned from the first time around and what I’m doing differently.

1. I refuse to freak out about toxins.

Yes, toxic chemicals are real and they’re scary, but there’s so much noise about toxins being in everything from drinking water to furniture that I risk driving myself crazy trying to avoid them all. During my first pregnancy, I wouldn’t even go out in the sun because I was worried about potential baby-harming ingredients in sunscreen. This time around, I know to steer clear of things with retinoids, tetracycline, parabens, phthalates, and salicylic acid, and I’m leaving it at that.

2. I’m not buying anything.

As I learned with my first baby, people will practically trip over themselves to give you hand-me-downs and gifts, especially relatives and friends with young children. As a result I had close to 25 newborn onesies, and some of them my daughter outgrew before she could even wear them. So I plan on doing zero shopping before this baby arrives.

3. I’m signing up for prenatal yoga.

Self-care. The mere idea of it makes me feel funny. Put myself first? Why would I do that?! It doesn’t come naturally to many women. But if there’s any time to prioritize it, it’s when you’re expecting. During my first pregnancy, I thought walking my dog three times a day was good enough exercise and time to clear my mind. But while getting fresh air and sunlight with a furry friend has its benefits, it pales in comparison to the experience of attending a prenatal yoga class. The camaraderie you can build with other women in the same life situation is beyond description. Imagine being about to embark upon the most wild ride of your life, and having nine new friends to do that with? It’s almost priceless.

4. I won’t fight the “wisdom” of family and friends.

When I was pregnant with my daughter, I became so sick and tired of people telling me what to do that I started pushing back. If a relative told me I shouldn’t “be a hero” by trying to give birth without any medical interventions, I would lash out with statistics about fetal monitoring, epidural risks, and C-section incidences. Now that I’m expecting my second child, I plan to just smile and nod, and maybe try to change the subject when someone offers a nugget of wisdom. There’s no point in going to the mat with well-intentioned friends and family.

5. I’m wearing a bathing suit.

When I was pregnant with my first summer baby, I flat-out refused to slather myself with sunscreen and squeeze into a swimsuit. This time, I have no choice, being that I’m in charge of a toddler who wants desperately to swim and needs close supervision. So I bought a super-cute maternity swimsuit and plan on rocking it from June to September.

For all I know, this could be the last time I’m pregnant. So I fully plan on soaking up all the prenatal poses and pool time I can before Labor Day (and my labor day) comes.
