Although all parents experience challenges with the arrival of a new baby, parents of twins face their own unique sets of joys and frustrations. Over the past 30 years, the number of twin births has almost doubled globally, yet information on caring for twins remains sparse in pregnancy and babycare books. Twins is a reassuring, practical, and authoritative guide, featuring the essentials to ensure parents are informed and prepared throughout pregnancy and the first year. Written by two mothers of twins, the authors know just how daunting preparing for the babies' arrival can be. Katy Hymas, who blogs about being a mom of twin baby boys and Dr. Carol Cooper, a doctor and the UK's Twins and Multiple Birth Association's consultant in family medicine, combine insightful first-hand support and advice with the medical knowledge of an experienced family doctor. Concise and easy to follow, the book provides beleaguered parents with everything they need to know about pregnancy, birth, and the year ahead, such as: demystifying twin terminology, eating for three?, what to buy, preparing and involving your other children, double feeding, bathing, taking the babies out and about, baby-proofing your home, sleep schedules, coping with sleep deprivation, the latest on twin development, bringing up babies as individuals, getting the support you need, and much more.
