Overview

As a twin-mom, pediatrician, and American Academy of Pediatrics spokesperson, Dr. Flais is the most trusted source for twin parenting advice

Pediatrician and twin-mom, Dr. Shelly Vaziri Flais, offers expert advice for raising healthy, well-adjusted twins and triplets in this fully revised and updated third edition. Her guidance will help parents of multiples prepare for their babies’ arrival, weather the first few months of infancy, manage toddlerhood, and help establish individual identities through the school-age and teenage years. The combination of sound medical advice and real-world experience will give twin-parents the direction and reassurance that they need. Packed with thoughtful advice, parenting tips, and anecdotes from twin-moms and -dads, this new edition also includes interviews with twins, including astronaut Scott Kelly.
