Double the babies means double the challenges! Learn from a mom who knows what you’re going through how best to navigate the difficult but rewarding phase of caring for newborn twins.
As the parent of fraternal twins and a former member of the “three under three” club, Dagmara Scalise knows firsthand just how daunting that all-important first year can be. Now, in Twin Sense, she offers real-world advice on dealing with the many issues that arise when caring for newborn twins. Concise and easy to follow, the book teaches harried parents everything they need to know to navigate this difficult but rewarding phase of life, including tips for: baby-proofing; stocking up on what they really need; preparing and involving previous children; breast-feeding two babies at once; making errands possible; getting through the night; bathing the babies; traveling with twins; keeping the peace; responding to probing questions about having twins; and much more. Although everyone experiences unexpected challenges with the arrival of a new baby, the parents of twins face their own unique sets of joys and frustrations. Filled with lively anecdotes and practical advice, this is a true insider’s guide that will make raising twins--if not a breeze--a true pleasure.
