There are more than one-year-old twin sisters in the family, and the consumption of children is double, and it will definitely cost more for my family to raise two children than for others to raise one child, is this really the case?
Let me take a look at the consumption of my twin babies, first of all, the two big heads are milk powder and diapers, followed by the cost of clothes, nutritional supplements, snacks and side foods, medical treatment and medicine.
1. Milk powder
In April 2020, the twin babies were born, and they have been mixed with breast milk and milk powder, and the milk powder given to the baby from beginning to end is the basic clothing of Yili Gold Crown, which is economical and affordable, and the baby drinks without any discomfort.
And all milk powder is purchased online, mostly purchased by my husband on JD.com, and occasionally I have bought it several times on a certain platform.
My husband checked that the total number of orders was 3800 yuan, and I bought less than 1000 yuan on my mobile phone, so the total
Last year, milk powder was about 5,000 yuan.
This year, all of them are purchased online by my husband, most of them are barreled, a small number of boxes, a barrel of about 140 yuan, a bag of 400 grams in a box is 50 yuan a bag. In the second half of this year, the price of milk powder has increased, and the price of 3 stage milk powder can match the price of 1 stage milk powder last year.
My husband often says: I don’t have anything to look at the preferential activities of milk powder, buy some when it is suitable, and I can’t leave it day by day.
He probably calculated that he had bought more than 5,000 yuan of milk powder in 2021, calculated as a whole number
In 2021, the milk powder money is about 6,000 yuan.
The cost of diaper use in the first month of the baby’s birth, because of the jaundice period of use is large, I don’t remember how much money was bought at that time. At 300 yuan, the usage is regular since the baby’s 3rd month, and I have also found a fixed product suitable for the baby.
Use diapers during the day, buy 100 pieces at a time for less than 30 yuan, the amount of 2 weeks. Use diapers at night, buy 100 pieces at a time, the amount of more than 40 days, about 50 yuan. A total of 100 yuan for diapers a month. Last year, according to eight months, it was 800 yuan, plus the first month or two of diapers were used more,
In 2020, the cost of diapers is about 1,000 yuan.
In the second half of this year, the price of the diapers I bought rose a little, and it was enough to pay 120 yuan a month.
The total cost of diapers in 2021 is almost 1200 yuan.

In 2020, the twin sisters’ clothing category is about 1,000 yuan.
Because most of the clothes bought in the first year of the baby’s life can still be worn this year, or modified and can continue to be worn.
There are also neighbors for two babies, and there are also a lot of summer and autumn clothes. This fall, the child’s grandmother also bought the child two sets of autumn clothes and hats. So, buy fewer clothes in 2021.
The autumn clothes that the twin babies are wearing now are all four sets of farts and long sleeves from last year, and the grandmother cut off the fart part and directly changed it to autumn clothes, which are worn outside in autumn and can be worn inside a cotton jacket in winter.
There are also thin cotton one-piece cotton coats that directly cut off the leg parts and become thin cotton tops, so last year’s total of four sets of thin cotton clothes continue to be worn this year.
