I am looking for a good reference book. I read twin sense and I liked it and I read another book just called Twins, it was okay, a little out dated. Any books that really helped anyone that I could reference once the kids are here.

Hello! My friend who has twins gave me her book while I was expecting my boys. It's EXCELLENT - its called "When Your Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads" The core of this book really deals with making sure mom eats A LOT and well for optimal birth weight- thererby reducing compications. Written by Dr. Barbara Luke & Tamara Eberlin (mom of twins) good luck!

I got a lot of good info from "The Art of Parenting Twins" and I've heard good things about "Twins to Quints" but by the time I heard about it I was well past the baby stage so I figured I could wing it from there :o) If you are still pg, "All you need to know to have a healthy twin pregnancy" by Gila Leiter is great. She's an OB who specializes in multiple births and has 4 daughters, including a set of twins.

Congratulations - when are you due? Are you excited/terrified? My twins Samuel & Freya are almost 2 now (& they're little monsters!). I found Dr. Carol Cooper's 'Twins & Multiple Births' book the absolute best one when I was pregnant, it's the one that's most highly recommended by TAMBA. It's more factual than advisory but I found it really helpful & interesting. Also, one of the best sources of information - go along to your local Twins Club while you're still pregnant - it's a really good way to get loads of practical, real life tips on how to cope with the early days. It's also a fab way to acquire some good quality second hand stuff at low prices; people with twins are always eager to sell on their baby stuff fairly promptly because our houses are rarely big enough to store it all!

Hi there! I have twin boys that are now 7 months old and I LOVED the book Juggling Twins by Meghan Regan-Loomis. There's a few you can get on Amazon. She has twins herself and the humor in this book made things a little more realistic than others. Good luck!!
