I chose to wait until we found out the sex of what I thought I was 1 baby to buy a car seat to decide if I wanted girly colors or not since I had bought the boyish stuff the first time around. So I bought two girly ones. If you do use the twin discount make sure to tell them at the checkout - this is for most items, I can find the link on the website if you want. I used it on their Graco Snugrides and on their Britax Marathons so far. If you need two of other things (highchairs, etc.) it could work on those, too.
ETA: I'm not sure if it works for two different prints if you wait and they're B/G or not, but I'm sure you could ask.
I do and that is good to know! Thanks! I think that this sale is still better than the 10 off. My worry is m/c. I worry about that all the time. BUt the dr said once I see/hear HB that the chance of m/c goes WAY down...I did see 2 hb. One was 147 and one was 153 so the dr said that was VERY good!

Re: Last poll on Infant Seats

I would wait another few months. Chances are around the holidays all of these major sites will run specials. That's when I plan on buying (BTW we have the same due date! I hope mine isn't twins though, I haven't been to the doc yet.. lol... congradulations!)

I would say no normally, but with TWO babies coming I figure every saved penny helps. Hmm.... I personally probably wouldn't still, there's TONS of time for more sales to come along. But, if you did get them now I don't think it would be weird or anything. Just make sure you have storage for them!

Re: Last poll on Infant Seats

Congrats on twins!! A year ago, I would have been jealous, but my LO has me exhausted.

I'm all for buying bit by bit while you can, but I'd wait until about 24 weeks and definitely at least 12 weeks. I was afraid of m/c with DD#2. It took about that long for reality to set in, too. (BUT! I *DO* know how hard it is to wait and, as pp's said, $80 is a lot to save!) Crap, I'm not much help.
Nature does nothing uselessly.

Congratulations on the twins!

But, from personal experience, I would wait. Also, if you were to buy them and for whatever reason change your mind, return shipping won't be cheap.
