6 Great Freebie Resources for Parents of Twins & Multiple Births

A sure way to double the joys of parenthood is to give birth to twins! You'll have twice the smiles, goos & coos, giggles, and firsts (first words, first steps, first burps?.) But for many soon-to-be parents of twins, once the excitement wears off, the math sets in?.

Suddenly you find yourself with twice the dirty diapers, twice the mouths to feed in the middle of the night, twice the formula to buy. Then, there are twice the outfits and booties to get. You'll need two cribs, playpens, baby swings?..The next thing you know, double the fun has turned into triple the financial stress.

But before you begin pulling out your hair and pawning the family keepsakes, read on. Many companies out there realize that oftentimes, parents of twins need an extra break. They offer coupons, freebies, discounts and many other incentives.

Cashing in on Free Stuff for Twins

Before you can cash in, you'll need to do a little paperwork. However, I'm sure you'll agree that a few moments of your time will certainly pay off. To receive any of the six free reward program incentives below you'll need to provide each company with the following:

? A letter stating that you've just had twins. One of the easiest ways to do this is to create a generic form letter on your computer. Print out six copies of it, and keep it saved, since you'll more than likely come across other offers that will also require a letter.

? Copies of your children's birth certificates. While at a later point, you may be required to provide the company with a certified copy, at this point I'd only recommend that you send an unofficial copy. Or, to save yourself time and stamps, you can try to call or email the companies.

Once you've got this information together, you're ready to get started. Here are just a few of the companies out there who are willing to help you get free stuff for twins:
