    Practical advice to take care of two babies at once

    Raising Twins is a practical, uplifting book that gives tons of specific tips on how to raise twins. Too many twins books focus on how much work it is, but Dr. Flais gives encouraging, been-there advice that I found very reassuring and helpful to my experience.

    Raising Twins has been a life saver!

    My wife and I have found Raising Twins to be extremely helpful. Dr. Flais' advice helped us to finally get our twins to sleep through the night! Sleep! Yes! We wish we had read it sooner. Raising Twins has really helped us to streamline our child care routine and gain control over the chaos. I highly recommend it.

    Helpful advice for twins

    Raising Twins is full of specific, helpful advice on how to care for 2 babies at once. Dr. Flais is a mom of twins and 2 other children herself, and her tips speak from her experiences. It was fun and easy to read, too, and everything is in one place, which is great- moms of multiples do not have a lot of spare time for research!

    Highly Recommend

    I would definitely recommend this book. I found it extremely useful for the first few months after the babies were born. I have yet to find a book regarding twins after the first year that is helpful. But I am glad I purchased this book!

    not very informative for multiple pregnancy

    The subtitle states from pregnancy to preschool but less than one chapter is devoted to pregnancy. I purchased this book as soon as I found out I was pregnant with twins. I was hoping for information to help me have a successful pregnancy, but found this was not so. I also felt that even though the author is the mother of multiples, the information that she gives is not up-to-date. I did not finish reading it since most of the information is for after the babies' birth, but I will hold onto it in case it may come in handy in the future.
