Everyone adores twins, but only their parents fully comprehend just how joyous -- and how demanding -- having twins can be. With two babies to love, to feed, to care for, and to raise, there is twice the excitement and also twice the work. Having twins is a unique challenge and TWINS: FROM CONCEPTION TO FIVE YEARS provides all the help parents need to rise to that challenge with the most love and the least stress.
Parents of twins must deal with practical arrangements and emotional issues that parents of singly born children never face. Based on years of study, personal experience, and hundreds of interviews, TWINS provides a wealth of great advice, essential information, and useful photos and illustrations on all aspects of twin care. Here are answers to your questions about:
* Establishing a workable daily routine
* The mechanics of breast- and bottle-feeding infant twins
* Coping with parental exhaustion
* Whether or not to dress twins alike
* Special issues for fathers of twins
* How to encourage separate identities
* Twins at school
* Twins and siblings
TWINS has everything you need to know about the pleasures, the trials, the wonders, and the work of raising your twins!
