Raising Twins and Multiples

Start planning now for your rapidly expanding family!

Planning

If you're expecting twins or triplets, chances are that you're delighted but also wondering how you're going to juggle the needs of your instant family. After all, most new parents have their hands full with just one baby! The reality is that raising multiples is hard. You'll have double or triple the feeding, diapering, and laundry, and less time to spend cuddling and getting to know each baby. Indeed, there are days when you'll feel like you're walking up a down escalator. Recovering from a c-section or visiting premature babies in the intensive-care nursery -- both of which are more likely to happen when you're having multiples -- will only add to the difficulty. Fortunately, there are ways to plan ahead so you can enjoy your babies once they arrive.
