Raising Twins: The Essential Guide from Pre-birth to Young Adult by Clare House
Finding out that you're going to have twins can be scary, exciting, and a trip into the unknown. This practical, step-by-step guide, published in association with 'Prima Baby' magazine, is an absolute must for all parents expecting or raising twins, and takes the reader right up to young adulthood. Raising Twins starts at the beginning - pregnancy - covering the first scans, body changes and personal care, before moving on to birth and coming home - preparation, equipment, labour, feeding two babies, and more. Tips include managing the endless demands of toddling tykes, twin clubs, attention seeking, starting school and being in separate (or same) classes, right through to teenage years and leaving home. Always practical, the author discusses about the role grandparents can play, dad's role, relationships with other siblings, identifying identical twins and how the friendships that twins make are affected. Featuring the personal experiences of both the author and those she has spoken to, Raising Twins is easy to follow and dip in and out of.
