Even with years working as a pediatrician, Shelly Vaziri Flais, MD, FAAP, was nervous about what lay ahead when she was told she was pregnant with twins.

With insightful stories from her own experiences coupled with important information only a pediatrician can offer, Raising Twins will help parents Prepare for the arrival of their twins Survive the first few days and weeks with advice on sleep schedules, feeding choices, and finding support Develop strategies to help successfully manage (and enjoy!) the first year of their twins' lives Negotiate the toddler years, including potty training, language development, big-kid beds, budgets, and discipline Understand the world of their twins as they become preschoolers, including socialization inside and outside the family, encouraging individualism, discipline and sleep issues.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I expected more from a pediatrician / mother of twins 6. Februar 2010
Von maiurano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought 3 books from Amazon to help educate myself on my twin pregnancy: 1) When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads, 2) Twin Sense, and 3) Raising Twins. The 1st one has the most in-depth and medical information, which I find to be a huge help, particularly the section on specific nutrition requirements, which was hard to find anywhere else. The 2nd book is also quite good. I like the way it is organized and the tips it gives on what items to borrow or buy, and in what quantities. The 3rd book seems merely anecdotal when compared to the others. I had hoped for more since it was written by a pediatrician and mother of twins, but I found it to be light on content and completely superfluous given the more detailed information contained in the other two. I would recommend the book -- When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads -- very highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best of the Twins Books I've Bought 15. Januar 2010
Von S. H Schlosberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I'm a mom of 2 1/2-year-old twin boys, and I own five different books about raising twins. Flais' book is the best one by far because it's more honest than the others. She is very adamant that synchronizing your twins' skeds is key -- when one wakes up to eat, you wake the other one up. Period. I totally agree. Feeding them back-to-back will make you insane. Also, it is refreshing to read from a doctor that pacificers are not a good idea. I never used them -- just one more habit to break.

She also reminds you that you need to treat your twins as individuals, something that is easy to forget when you are so busy.

The best tips are in boxes, so they are easy to find. Plus, this book is short. No mom of twins has time to read more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical and balanced 13. Dezember 2009
Von A. Bornstein - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
As a pediatrician taking care of many families with multiples, I find that Dr. Flais' book is a practical and east-to-read guide which answers many basic care issues that parents face. She strikes a nice balance with her advice, recognizing that not all families function identically, and that there is not only one specific solution to all problems (which is a characteristic of parenting books that should be sought after in general). She also acknowledges that not every individual situation that parents encounter will go as smoothly as hoped, but if one stays true and consistent to your goals as a parent, increased success will generally be obtained over time.

There are a number of very practical tips in this book to help parents of multiples streamline their days, to be more efficient with routine tasks (feeding, toilet training for instance) and to be more cost-conscious at the same time. Many of her suggestions are applicable for raising any child (singleton or twin) and are well within the mainstream of parenting advice (such as the need for consistency with discipline strategies, the importance of adequate sleep etc.) I give her credit however for stressing the importance of making sure ALL members of the family are taken care of (including the parents) and the challenges that raising children can place on the relatioships within the parent. I think she places appropriate emphasis on the functioning of all the relationships within the family (not just parent-child).

The book is written with a positive yet realistic outlook on the different challenges presented by raising twins rather than a single child. These differences are not made out to be insurmountable or more difficult however, which should provide optimism to parents. She points out several joyful life moments that twins uniquely experience, which should provide parents a lot of positive feelings about their own capabilities and that of their children.

5.0 von 5 Sternen MUST have book for parents of twins!! 15. Oktober 2009
Von Mom of Three - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Raising Twins is a comforting, reassuring book that makes the prospect of raising twins a lot less frightening and overwhelming! I've read many books on raising twins and have not found any yet that match the ease and comfort of this book. It feels like getting honest advice from a trusted friend. It openly admits to the many challenges of raising twins, but it is very light-hearted and gives you many practical, real examples to use in your own life. There are even tips to help with the financial strains of raising multiple children. When I finished reading this book, I felt a refreshing wave of optimism that I WILL survive these years; I only wish I had this book before my now 2 year old twins were born! I am sure I will have this by my bedside as we make our way through the preschool years!! From a mother of twins, if you know someone expecting or already has young twins, get them this book!!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Parenting first; Twins, an afterthought 1. Januar 2013
Von Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm really amazed that the average rating is around 4.5 for this book. My overall feeling is that it's dry, and not very unique to twins. As a parent of two young children (5yrs and 18mos), I'm looking more for a "crash course" in Twin Specifics. I'm looking for the tricks and 'shortcuts' that will help us survive, especially those early months. I want the honest truth: "what is it going to take, and how am I going to muster it?"... and I don't have much time to read (already a little busy with 2 kiddos). I'm so bored with the book right now, I'm struggling to get through the last few pages, I almost gave it 2 stars... but as a parent, I do relate to the advice and facts. I don't think they're wrong/bad...

Pros -
+ For First Time Parents, the author does a VERY nice job summarizing key parenting points, sleep training, naps, feeding frequency, formula/breastfeeding, etc. As a new parent with my first child, I probably would have given it 5 stars.
+ The author of this book has an older child, so there are some tips for managing sibling introduction and attention.
+ I'm a big fan of the Ferber sleep training method (and I think it gets a lot of unfair / bad press). This book explains it very eloquently. It talks about how to start sleep training without making it a scream-fest. It also goes one step further, giving ages/weights for when to start sleep training (something Ferber skirted around a little bit).
+ There are some illustrations for feeding positions (although you can just as easily find them online, or in the instructions for a twin nursing pillow).

Cons -
- It's mostly just a parenting book, with a twin 'flavor'. Specific to twins, basically it says to get them on the same schedule, save money with hand-me-downs/yardsales/consignment, google Nursing Pillows, and accept help.
- *yawn* ... I think the tone tries to stay calm and relaxing, but wow... boring...
- "Twin Tips" are called out in boxes on each page or so. Good concept, but #1 they're not always "twin" specific, and #2 it seems like they're just fluff to take up space and make the book bigger. Very repetitive.

First time parents, go for it. Apparently lots of other people really liked it. And I agree that it's a good, reliable resource/summary, which seems to concisely provide TONS of info out (which can be overwhelming).

Experienced parents, it's a nice "brush-up", but there isn't much truly candid discussion of how this "twin world" is different, or what to do to survive it. If you have a little one (or more) at home, chances are you're exhausted already... and you may not have the time/energy to wade through the stuff you know for the few nuggets of Twin info.
