this is the best "twins" book i've read (and i've read quite a few at this point) mainly for the practical suggestions for how to deal with breastfeeding, sleep training, etc. obviously there were some ridiculous suggestions, like hiring professional help day and night in the beginning (i'm pretty sure the people who can afford that are not reading this book, they are just hiring more people to help), and inviting everyone you have ever met to a party where they have to bring a case of diapers. ...more
'Juggling Twins' was definitely a fun and useful read. I appreciated Regan-Loomis' sense of humor that seemed undimmed by such daunting subject matter. After all the pregnancy books I've read lately, it was nice to graduate to a book about what actually happens after the babies are born. And information about the logistics of post-birth care feels cursory at best.

As with any parenting book, I do disagree with a few of her ideas. The primary one being that one needs to hire professional help to
This book was a good starting place for us. It's not too serious, so it didn't overwhelm us with lists of things we were going to have to do. It did, however, give us an idea of some of the things we are going to be up against. The author definitely has her own perspective, which is both good and bad.

Her perspective makes the book more entertaining than one written generically. For example, she believes in significant weight gain during pregnancy. She's also against co-bedding, and in favor of u
This book was just okay for me. It seemed to mostly focus on the author's experience, sometimes that was presented as the only logical way to do things. Other times additional perspectives were introduced but rarely elaborated upon. The author introduced sleep training saying it was more complicated than just letting the babies cry themselves to sleep however did not specify what made it more complicated. I got annoyed easily at suggestions that were presented as rules- such as forgoing a baby s ...more
I thought this was one of the more useful books I've read recently. It's not medically based, just gives tips on dealing with the day-to-day management of twins. I liked that she also had an older child to handle, and she seemed very practical. When she did get into medical territory, I wasn't as into her opinions (she's very pro-nursing, for example) and there wasn't a ton of medical validity to any of her claims (she points out she's not a doctor, nor was the book written with one). But those ...more
This is an easy to read book about early stage life with twins. Less of a textbook than some other baby and twin books, it is scattered with humour and personal stories as well as advice. Somewhat disappointing to read the section on "Single mum with twins" or "raising twins alone" or whatever it was called ONLY to see it give advice on keeping your marriage together! Perhaphs change the title of that section, Meghan. I won't be able to comment on the advice until I've had my own twins but even ...more
Juggling Twins really helped me feel a bit more in control while I was awaiting the birth of my twin girls. The author had practical advice - such as the need to schedule people to help you after the babies are born, and the importance in the first couple weeks of getting your partner and family to feed the babies for one shift so that you can catch up on sleep. I found I used this book the most before the babies were born and in the first couple months.

There are books written for all different kinds of readers, this one was not written for me. I am not a huge fan of the exaggerated, or sarcastic comments that make me not trust the author. The book is well written, but just not what I needed in my time of need.

Inetersting tips. Sarcastic and blunt writing style
Lots of good advice. Hope to put a lot to good use!
