Weaving together practical twin-parenting advice and actual journal entries from the author's first year as a parent of twins, "Parenting Twins: The Handbook for Containing Chaos and Preserving Memories in the First Year" is an essential guide for families welcoming multiples into their lives. Focusing on the babies' first year, the book takes an in depth look at the issues and challenges parents face after bringing their babies home from the hospital. This book uniquely targets both practical and emotional challenges and offers supportive guidelines to follow from topics as wide-ranging as breastfeeding to relationships, sleep to developmental stages, travel to return-to-work plans, and health issues to preserving memories through it all. This book helps parents of multiples keep perspective- to calm them through the difficult and trying times and, importantly, to highlight and capture the moments that make it all worthwhile.
