Family Focus:  While our meetings are usually just for parents, our club puts a big focus on family involvement.  We want any fathers and siblings to have support, as well as be involved in social activities. Everyone is welcome who has multiples: adopted multiples, foster parents of multiples, single parents, etc. 


What Do We Do?

This club is currently in the beginning stages of forming.  Currently we are a social and support group for parents of twins, triplets or other multiple birth children. 

We have the guidance and support right now from the Wisconsin Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs and the Waukesha Mothers of Twins Club.  As we grow this year, we hope to add some of theses activities:

  • Guest Speakers

  • Club Library

  • Family Parties & Outings

  • Group Rummage Sales

  • Coupon Exchange

  • State Conventions

  • Social Nights Out

  • Playgroups

  • Club Newsletter

Who needs support?

When the excitement finally wears off there are many questions that go through your head. . .

  • Can I breastfeed two babies at once?

  • What kind of stroller should I buy?

  • Can I put them in the same crib?

  • Should I dress them alike?

  • Should I buy two of each toy?

  • How do I deal with public attention?

  • How do I get others to treat them like individuals?

  • How do I encourage sharing?

  • How do I potty train two at once?

  • How do I deal with fighting?

  • Is it important for twins to interact with other twins?

  • What can I do to prevent twin  language problems?

  • At what age should boy/girl twins have separate bedrooms?

  • Can they be in the same class in school?

  • How can I find time for myself?

Raising twins is special! There are many issues that are so specific just to twins.  Even if you know people who have two children close in age, it is just not the same at all.  Help yourself and your whole family embrace the twinship in your life!
