Diaz (founder, twiniversity.com) offers expectant parents a complete survival guide to babies' first year. While twins are hardly the unicorns they used to be, they require unique considerations for expecting, delivery, breastfeeding, scheduling, and more, and common guides to pregnancy and early infancy simply do not apply. Diaz, a Manhattan mother of fraternal twins, covers the major topics one would anticipate, as well as the more mundane but crucial ones, such as choosing a stroller. Her top six mistakes to avoid (e.g., not accepting help, not napping, etc.) are useful lessons, and she does a fine job of helping parents prepare for events such as outings to the grocery store (yes, they are that involved). VERDICT Diaz offers a detailed and on-target guide for parents expecting two; for libraries needing an update or addition to the parenting collection, consider this a worthy purchase.
