I had a high-risk pregnancy with twins and so was put on a bed rest all through. The only way I could sail through that span of nine months, without losing my sanity, was by reading and reading more. Reading books on twin parenting can help you in a major way to prepare for a completely new and different life with twins.
Even now on days when I feel I am totally incapable of handling twins, I resort to reading books/e-books and they surely help me gain more perspective on my situation. Honestly, all twin parents sail through the same boat. The challenges and struggles faced by them are broadly similiar, the intensity may be different. And so reading experiences of fellow twin moms surely help in a great way to gain some insights and feel more confident about one’s life.
In this post, I have compiled a list of some helpful books on twin parenting. If you feel your life with twins is challenging, I would suggest read some of these books. They will not just help you gain some tips and tricks but will also make you feel that you aren’t alone in your journey.
