Even with years of experience working as a pediatrician, Shelly Vaziri Flais, MD, FAAP, was nervous about what lay ahead when she was told she was pregnant with twins.
Now, several years into parenting her twin boys, Dr. Flais is sharing her wisdom and experience as a mom and her expertise as a doctor to help other parents prepare for and raise multiples with confidence.
With insightful stories from her own experiences, coupled with important information only a pediatrician can offer, Raising Twins can help you deal with your little ones.

If they are identical, it is easy to treat them as a "package deal," providing them with the same clothing, toys, and quality of attention.

As one twin explained, "We're not twins. We're just brothers who have the same birthday!"
