Chris and Deanna Daughtry, North Carolina natives, are expecting twins! The happy news was just announced on May 17th. The twins will join their other two children in November 2010. You all know Chris as a final four contestant of American Idol in 2006. He has been arguably the most successful American Idol contestant that did not win the contest since they started the show. According to Wikepedia, the band that was formed, Daughtry, released their self-titled debut album which sold more than one million copies after just five weeks of release, becoming the fastest selling debut rock album in history. In its ninth week of release, the album reached number one on the Billboard charts. Chris Daughtry is now the third most successful American Idol contestant in terms of record sales, behind only Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, who both won their respective seasons.
We are very happy for Chris and Deanna on their upcoming additions and wish them much happiness. I also wanted to point out that there must be something in the water in North Carolina. Many of our customers are also expecting twins, so the only logical conclusion is that the NC government is adding some sort of twin-producing hormone to our water. How else can we explain the recent influx in twins?
All joking aside, having twins can be very exciting and overwhelming. Choosing products for your twins is twice as hard, as now you have to figure out what the perfect “twins” product is, and it is more of a challenge, as there is not as much information out there on twin products.
So Chris and Deanna, some recommendations if you please… You may look into these at your leisure.
-Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller- Great for walking around the trails, the beach, your neighborhood, and great for running from the Paparazzi.
-Baby Jogger City Mini Double - Lightweight, easy to get in and out of the car in a quick pinch. Still leaves room in the trunk for your band’s equipment.
-Baby Jogger City Select - If you go with one twin stroller, go with this one. Multiple positions and reclines. Babies can face parent, face each other, face the street. You can put both your infant carriers right on the frame and the basket is extra large with great access. Awesome canopies on this stroller as well. Incredibly hard to get stroller right now due to popularity. Give us a call Chris and Deanna! We’ll save one for you!
-Chicco Car Seats - The best rated infant carriers out there. Will go in both of the above strollers.
-Nap Nanny - Great product for feeding two at one time, or for lounging. Also great for colic, reflux, and earaches. VERY comfy for babies!
-Baby K-Tan Carrier - You can carry both babies at once in this thing!
-Sprout Shell Infant Car Seat Protector - Chosen just for you to shield babies from the flashing cameras that will come their way, and from prying hands. Also acts as a nursing cover and shopping cart cover
-Skip Hop Duo Double Deluxe - Extra Large Twin Size Diaper Bag for Baby
To Chris, Deanna, and ALL parents of twins, good luck with your double blessings, and let us know how we can help. Congratulations!
