A great twin pregnancy read but, as with most things, not even close to preparing you for reality.

Gina-make toast at 7.46am- draw the blinds at 7.47am- change twin one nappy 7.48am -seriously, has this ever been achieved in the history of time?

Decent, text-book style advice on early days with twins. I read this after reading "Save our Sleep" and being somewhat dismayed by the short chapter on twins. The book has some reference sections on feeding routines which I think will be helpful. I'm always amused by these writers when I read sections on "hired help" and "what to look for in hired help"... Yeah that's great info, thanks...!

This author also writes Contented Little Baby Book, one of THE best-selling baby books in England. Apparently every expectant parent reads this book over there. I'd never heard of it but recently received it as a gift from one of my pond-hopping friends. She swears by the wisdom in this book. Seems like it'll be a great resource.

Really practical - she spells out a daily schedule for sleeping (by 15 min. intervals!) and eating/weaning for each growth stage in the babies' first year.
