Any advice on GOOD twin books to read?

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Can anyone recommend a good twin book to read?

    I'm 21 weeks and I was hoping to read some really good books. My sister (who had twins 13 years ago) gave me 3 books but they were older and quite frankly depressing with stories of how hard it will be. I don't mind books that deal with the reality of twin life, but I would also like to read something hopeful and how to cope and deal with twins. And I would love to be able to read a book on HOW to breastfeed twins successfully.

    So if anyone knows of any good books, please advise.

    Thanks,
    Dawn

  3. Ok, these are the books that I've read and enjoyed:

    1. When you're expecting twins, trips, quads... by Dr Luke (I like that she has a positive outlook on the outcome of multiples. This book focuses mostly on the pg and not much after delivery)

    2. Juggling Twins by Regan-Loomis (this is pretty much the first year or so of twins. Very easy to read and quite funny. She has lots of good tips, and DH was even willing to read several chapters because it is such an easy read. She does discuss feeding options, but the BFing section is not highly in-depth).

    **this last two I haven't read yet, but I plan to order them this week from Amazon**

    3. Mothering Multiples by Karen Gromada. This book focuses on BFing twins. If you go to her website: karengromada.com
    She has a lot of tips posted as well as photos of single and tandem feedings of twins.

    4. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins by Dr. Weisbluth. I've read his other book, but apparently he came out with this new version for multiples this month. From the reviews I've read, it is a much faster and to the point read than his other long and repetative book.
    HTH!

  4. I really liked \"Twinspiration\", the woman who wrote it was able to breastfeed her twins for the first year.

    I bought the \"Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child\" after having problems with getting one of mine to nap, I definately recommend reading it BEFORE the twins arrive. I didn't and it was hard to find the time to read it while taking care of twins. I just ordered the new book he wrote specifically for twins but haven't read it yet as I am still waiting on it.

  5. Thanks girls!

    I find this all so scary and exciting at the same time.
