Overview

For anyone expecting twins-and for those already raising them-The Parents' Guide to Raising Twins is a practical and comprehensive resource. Cherry Rowland and Elizabeth Friedrich, both mothers of twins, have tapped into a wealth of guidelines and advice from doctors and nurses, as well as the personal experiences of thirty-five other parents of twins and triplets.

They map out the special problems and pleasures of:

-Being pregnant with twins: how to obtain an accurate diagnosis; prenatal care; complications to watch for
-Managing the early months: how to adjust to sleeping patterns; breast-feeding for two or more; the question of dressing twins
-Treating young twins as individuals: how to cope with the competitiveness (and closeness) between twins, and common misconceptions about "twinness."

The authors list clubs and organizations specially devoted to issues of rearing twins. With their help, no parent will feel alone in caring for more than one baby at a time.
