If you’re a new parent of twins, triplets, quadruplets, or more, you’re probably a bit overwhelmed by all of the stuff you’ll need for them. To help make it easier, many companies and stores offer discounts or freebies for multiples. Here are some of them:
Babies R Us: The baby superstore offers a Multiple Birth Discount of 10% off two or more of the same big-ticket item purchased in the same order. The discount applies to furniture, bedding sets, and baby gear including car seats, strollers, travel yards, high chairs, swings, gates, Exersaucers/walkers, and backpacks/carriers. Double strollers are also eligible.
