    1. This is THE book to read about nursing multiples. Gromada knows her stuff and writes well. Following her advice rather than the advice of the hospital nurses enabled me to provide my triplets with a huge amount of breast milk. My favourite part of the book is one paragraph where she writes that sometimes even with hard work and the best intentions, the challenges of breast-feeding multiples - especially preemie multiples - can be too much and she tells the reader that at that point, celebrating [...]


    2. This book was helpful if you take it from where it comes - it's a La Leche League book, so you know it's pro-breastfeeding, but I found it much more informative and practical than most books out there.


    3. I had higher hopes for this book, from what I read in reviews and from recommendations from others. It's really not that useful as a "raising multiples" book - it's HEAVILY focused on breastfeeding, so if you need information on that, this is a great book. But, if it's your first child/children, and you don't know what you're doing, you will probably feel awful if you give up on breastfeeding, if you've read this book. It is very biased and slightly annoying in how much it references breastfeedi [...]


    4. As if I didn't already have mad respect for my friends and family parenting twins! :)A good, general purpose guide for mothers expecting multiples. Particularly strong on advice and support for breastfeeding multiples (the author is a mom of twins and a La Leche League leader who started a group for mothers breastfeeding multiples and LLL published the guide, so you would expect it to be pretty strong on breastfeeding). As she says, "A mother of multiples is in need of the best possible breastfe [...]


    5. Ufda. The book is great when it is talking about breastfeeding, and has a lot of great information. It's tips for other things, like parenting, logistical stuff, etc is sometimes just a fever dream. The book, at one point, suggests looking at whether you as a mother will return to work or stay home. For those who are worried about finances, it recommends just really looking at your finances to decide if you REALLY need to work. That is literally its suggestion; it doubles down on telling you to [...]


    6. If I could give this book 6 stars I would! It is THE go-to book for nursing twins (or more!). When I first found out I was having twins I was afraid that my hopes to breastfeed would have to go out the window. This book taught me how to make it work legistically, and gave me so much great info about how to address feeding problems. I didn't even know what questions I should ask about nursing until I read this book. There's an entire chapter about prematurity and how to help your babies while in [...]


    7. A great overall book if you are expecting multiples and plan to breastfeed. Some of it was hard to read as not all scenarios presented are relevant (it highlights every possible NICU situation). There were also portions where I felt it was too pushy about breastfeeding and judgements about having to use or switch to formula. I suppose that is to be expected when coming from La Leche League, but I had hoped they'd be beyond using guilt to keep a tired mother of multiples trying to breastfeed afte [...]


    8. I found myself skimming through a lot of this book since I've nursed my two sons successfully. It seemed like it was mostly geared to those who start their families with multiples and have never nursed before. But what I appreciated about this book was that it normalized much of the conflicting emotions that come with the news of multiples, and I found some great tips and advice on the logistics of nursing twins. I will hang onto this book as a great reference manual at least until I'm able to g [...]


    9. This book is for women who plan on breastfeeding their multiples. The first half of the book is focused primarily on breastfeeding and then the second half discusses other topics about child-rearing multiples. I found the information really helpful, especially in regards to establishing milk-supply and what to do if you or your babies are having problems with breastfeeding. It is very encouraging and supportive. I think it is a great book to read to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself for [...]


    10. I FINALLY finished this book!! I had a hard time getting through it because it is very "dry" and I haven't been in the mood for dry reading in a while.This book was okay. It provides tons of valuable information. However, if you are pregnant with twins and want a natural childbirth AND you are already well versed and have researched your options, just skip the first part. It will scare you.The first part made me terrified of having twins, the second half made me want them.


    11. Mothering Multiples focuses on breastfeeding (as the title would indicate), but it does have a little bit more information in it than that. There really is only a little thoughyou may want to think carefully about whether you want to read 200+ pages on just breastfeeding. It may be better used as a manual. The information seems sound, albeit repeated frequently.


    12. An entire book devoted to breastfeeding multiples. Very helpful input but it does go on and on. A great resource if you are wanting to look-up information or have particular questions. La Leche League is a trusted resource for me and I would recommend this if you have any desire at all in breastfeeding your multiples.


    13. Of the four books about twins I've read, this has been the most helpful. The book offers several strategies for every situation, preparing the reader for any situation. I liked that the book included many pictures showing the different nursing holds.


    14. The best book about multiples I've read so far. Full of advice and tips that are actually useful. No fluff & general statements like in other books I've read. I found the advice about breastfeeding and toddler multiples especially helpful.





    15. something i got as a gift when we thought we were expecting twins. Very handy and helpful especially for first-time parents.


    16. One of the most helpful books about twins so far. A lot of information for first time parents (which I am not)




    17. Ok I only flipped through this one. It came out when my twins were 2. But It looked like it would be very helpful.
