Publisher Comments:

The creator of Twiniversity delivers the ultimate survival guide for parents of twins

 

The rate of twin births has risen 79 percent over the last three decades, and continues to increase. A mom of fraternal twins and a national guru on having two, Natalie Diaz launched Twiniversity, a supportive website with advice from the twin-trenches.

 

What to Do When Youre Having Two is the definitive how-to guide to parenting twins, covering how to make a Birth Plan checklist, sticking to one sleep schedule, managing double-duty breastfeeding, stocking up on all the necessary gear, building one-on-one relationships with each child, and more.

 

Accessible and informative, What to Do When Youre Having Two is the must-have manual for all parents of twins.

Review:

"Diaz, a Manhattan mother of fraternal twins, founder of the Twiniversity Web site, and director of the Manhattan Twins Club, brings her experience and the collective wisdom of her online community to this niche offering in the What to Expect genre. As multiple births in America increase due to IVF treatments, older maternal ages, and better medical outcomes for preterm labor, the medical system has developed more standard processes for dealing with them. This handbook proves most successful in clarifying these processes, telling the expectant twin mom how to handle such things as bed rest, to avoid preterm labor; a delivery that may place in an operating room with medical students watching; and a likely stay in the NICU for one or both babies. Diagrams for tandem nursing and co-swaddling are clear and helpful. But Diaz wades into murkier waters with a mix of consumer advice, personal opinions about controversial topics like cloth vs. disposable diapers, breast vs. bottle feeding, and sleep training, as well as several half-formed advice beyond her expertise, in realms like baby proofing, financial planning, and marital issues. The book is most suitable as a supplement rather than replacement for standard baby books; parents will likely want the wisdom of the professionals as well. Agent: J.L. Stermer, N.S. Bienstock."
