Hi All,<br><br>
I'm new to this forum and new to the shock of knowing I'm carrying twins! I'll be 16 wks. tomorrow!<br><br>
I mostly prepare for the unknown by reading all that I can about it. Can you recommend any books (or articles) about twins, twin pregnancy, twin labor/delivery and/or twin parenting? Naturally, I'm particularly interested in attachment parenting twins, but right now, I figure with 2 babies and a 2 year old, somebody is going to just have to *deal* until I can tend to them?!....maybe? I don't know...<br><br>
Looking forward to learning from y'all.<br><br>

Congratulations!! Sorry this will be really quick (my twins are just waking up). Two books I found useful was one by Dr. Barbara Luke and the one on Breastfeeding Multiples by the LLL. Sorry I can't remember the titles. I'm sure someone else will reply with them. And yes, speaking as someone with four kids sometimes one child just needs to wait, but you do the best you can <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.

i would go to thebabywearer.com and check out some good baby carriers, if you don't have some already. at least one that can work well for a back carry. this was soooo important for continuing our natural family living with twins and a 2 y/o.

I loved Having Twins by Noble. Pro-AP and not as fear factor as some of the other ones that are out there.
