You just found out you're having twins! What do you do now?
Having twins (or other multiples, such as triplets) means much more than simply having two babies at once. This challenge goes beyond having two or three times the work or pleasure.
Twins and other multiples are often born early and therefore tend to be smaller than the average newborn; so you may need to consult your pediatrician even more frequently than you would with a single baby.
Feeding twins, whether by breast or bottle, also requires some special strategies. Your doctor can provide advice and support in regards to this.
There may be added financial pressures upon the family as well, spending a lot more money on diapers, clothing, food, car seats, and dozens of other items–and perhaps needing a larger family car or even a larger home.
Special guest, Dr. Shelly Flais, MD, joins Melanie Cole, MS, to discuss all the concerns surrounding having twins and how you can navigate the seemingly complicated situation that is going to be so much greater than you can imagine.
