Updated twice since its original publication, this popular and inspiring parenting guide is for parents of twins or more. It’s written by a practising GP and mother of twins who seamlessly combines her medical know-how with first-hand experience of having more than one baby at once. With statistics on multiple births and useful resources, as well as information on topics such as advances in prenatal medicine and surgery, feeding, sleeping, schooling and looking after sick twins, this book offers professional, practical, and emotional advice to help parents cope with the development and rearing of twins from conception to adulthood. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship between twins as individuals as they grow up, their relationship with others both inside and outside the family, and sibling rivalry. This is an essential, enlightening, and often amusing guide for everyone who cares for twins or multiples.
