  1. My sis in law could have really used these books when she was having the twins. they seem to have lots of helpful info!

  2. This is a great list of books. I never knew these were out there. I bet my mother-in-law would’ve loved to have a majority of these books when she was pregnant with my husband and his brother. What wonderful resources to have

  3. My friend just found out she is having identical twin boys. These will be kids number 5&6 for her. I will have to share this post with her.

  4. So glad i never had to worry about this, lol! Twins run in my family too but never had any twins here. These sound like some good books!

  5. What a great resource! It is difficult for new parents to raise one child, and it would be a nightmare for them if they have twins! Thanks for sharing this list. My workmate is due to deliver twin girls 4 months from now.

  6. One was hard enough for me, I can’t imagine how I would have handled twins. I read the What to Expect books to help get me ready though. I bet these books will be helpful for parents of twins!

  7. There was always a fear for me I would have unexpected twins. They tun in my family, but I’m not sure I would be able to handle it. If we had had twins, these would have been helpful.
