I'd really be on board for helping to write just such a book. APing twins was way harder than a singleton. So many things had to give and that sucked. It was so much easier to stick one baby into a sling and just get on with it. Twins took way more planning and compromise. BUT I'd love to help write a book encouraging moms that it CAN be done! I never sleep trained my babies, we didn't do purposeful CIO, we cloth diapered part time, we held them a lot, they were exclusively breast fed, they coslept for a year and I did wear them and even sometimes wore them together. APing twins can be wonderful!
I remember once when I was visiting a friend of my husband's who's wife had just had twins. Both of them were entertaining and one of the babies was screaming in his swing. I nicely offered to pick him up and his wife told me "No, we just let them cry. They have to learn it's only two of us." I was horrified then (a good year and a half before my own twins entered stage left) and I'm horrified now. I made a good attempt to always be responsive to my twins, even if it was just calling out "I'll be there as soon as I can honey! I'm helping your brother!"
