Does anyone have any recommendations for books I can read? Twins or multiple birth books, I've seen a few on Amazon but I don't want to get 3 or 4 and they are no good

Mothering multiples!

Is that the older looking one where the mums hair looks kinda 80's?

TAMBA did a great book that I loved as it was very "real". I can't remember the name now though. I'll check and get back to you.

Thankyou

I have a feeling it's this one.

I have a copy of Mothering Multiples you can have for free - PM me with your address if you want it
I also have the TAMBA one which I preferred (so keeping that one to dip back into as the babies get older)

Mothering multiples is fab! It's out of print now but the author very kindly makes it available on her website I think. However my most valuable source of advice as a twin mum is other twin mums! Join local twin facebook communities, and if you're planning on breastfeeding do join Breastfeeding twins and triplets UK, it's an amazing group! Very inspiring!

Thankyou that is very kind - pm sent

There are no twin groups near me, I am hoping the hv can put me in touch with some mums once the babies are here

Hi- a few of my friends with twins have mentioned this book:
www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01BKSC58A/ref=pd_aw_sim_351_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=5ZJ9JGKQAVAZ01B3QNBT&dpPl=1&dpID=816VCGknMsL&tag=mumsnetforum-21

I don't have a kindle, I was looking at that one

sydenhamhiller Sun 12-Mar-17 16:09:21

Oh no- did I send kindle link? (Mumsnetting on the train!) You can buy paperback/ 2nd hand on Amazon too.

MumofthreeandBean Sun 12-Mar-17 17:23:56

Oh ok thanks

Mothering multiples is a fab book! If you can get a copy then I'd highly recommend it.

I have "Expecting twins?" and I found it useful. (Sounds like you're not, but don't bother with "normal" pregnancy books - you'll find a paragraph on twins at best).
