Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Multiple Birth Children: A Parent's Survival Guide, Birth-Age 3?
Excellent just like the authors Mar 21, 2007
I bought this book because the triplets: Austin, Grant and Sabrina are all in my 4th grade class now. Their parents wrote the book about raising them, and they are terrific parents. The triplets are all very bright, well mannered and creative. Bill and Sheila have definite boundaries and the children are well behaved. I never had multiple birth children of my own, but if I knew someone who did, I'd definitely pass on this book to them. I can't believe all the creative ideas they came up with to deal with three babies at once. Definitely a book for parents of twins, or triplets or more!
Quick reading and entertaining Aug 14, 2006
I am expecting triplets and thought this book was rather entertaining. It is a reality check for all you parents expecting three! I belong to a local triplet club, and the stories they tell me are very consistent with the author's. Read this BEFORE the babies are born (when you have lots of time) so it helps you prepare logistically and mentally. At first I thought the tips were basic, but the next day as I was thinking about the book in my head, I remembered some rather valuable tips that I had never heard or thought of. I am also going to send away for the freebies - seems like a very complete list. I also love all the side quotes that are scattered throughout the book. The authors are very down to earth and keep it real.
Very informative and useful Jan 30, 2006
My wife and I are expecting triplets and this books has given us a lot of tips to use once the kids are born. It was direct to the point and it includes a lot of information very useful in very stages of the kids growth.
Good basic info to read when your babes are little Jun 14, 2003
I read this when my triplets were 6 months old (boy,boy,girl) - sleeping all night and I actually had time to read something. I'd suggest buying this and reading it before the babes arrive. All of the addresses for free stuff they list are GREAT! I sent to all of them and probably got $800 worth of free stuff. The enfamil formula was worth it alone. So write out all of your envelopes BEFORE they are born then just copy your birth certs, and zoom -- free stuff. The UPS guy was wondering what was up at our house as I got boxes daily. Some of the other tips I figured out along the way too, but should have read this book during my 3 months of bed rest. So buy this book was soon as you know you've got the BIG 3 coming and buy bibs every time you see them!
There's a lot of twin books out there, but very few for us triplet folks and believe me, when you and your spouse are each feeding one -- the 3rd always knows it and that's when you belong to the triplet club. So grab any info you can for triplets because they've got you outnumber and they know it very young. The triplet connection is a great website too. This info is also provided in this book.
Great for triplets or more, less good for twins Feb 22, 2003
I bought this book based on the positive reviews I saw here at this site, but I was very disappointed when I read the book myself. I have 6-month-old twins and although there were some useful tips here and there, I feel that the book is really geared more toward triplets and higher-level multiples. The biggest example: this book barely addresses breastfeeding (very do-able with twins; much more challenging with triplets and more) and instead spends a great deal of time offering advice for coordinating the preparation of bottles and formula. While it is wonderful that those of you with 3+ have this book, I don't recommend it to parents of twins.
