Editorial Reviews

Review

“Dr. Le-Bucklin gives mothers of multiples (MOMs) a unique and authoritative perspective on multiple births. As an academic pediatrician and MOM, she not only knows, but she also understands first hand! ...This is a well organized, easy to read, ready-reference for all.” –National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs (NOMOTC)

"[Le-Bucklin] draws on her experience as an M.D. and a M.O.M. (mother of multiples) in this collection of fifty tips aimed at educating and encouraging parents of multiples. The advice covers the basics of pregnancy, birth and the early months of raising twins. This book particularly shines in its upbeat, positive presentation…Twins 101 is a welcome addition to any library of books about twins and multiples." — About.com (November 2008)

--This text refers to the Unknown Binding edition.

Review

"When I found out I was having twins, I searched for books that would be able to give me research AND experiential based information, and there was nothing out there until Twins 101. This book is exactly what I was looking for — clear, informative ideas and tips that are based on the latest research and practice. As a professional in the field of child development and psychology for over 15 years, I plan on using it frequently with the parents of multiples I meet in my practice as well as personally with my twin girls."
Eileen Andrade Kitching, MS, CCLS, child life director, University of California, Irvine; mother of twins

"Dr. Le-Bucklin’s unique and humane perspective makes her the perfect author of this much needed resource. Twins 101 is filled with practical advice and insights which will be welcome reading for all parents expecting or raising twins." — Henry Lee, MD, neonatologist, Stanford University

"This book contains high-yield, easy-to-read tips making it convenient for busy, on-the-go parents of multiples. Dr. Le-Bucklin demystifies the NICU and familiarizes readers with medical jargon that can be overwhelming to new parents. Nobody could have been better qualified to write this book than Dr. Le-Bucklin as a pediatrician and an amazing M.O.M."
Henry J. Legere III, MD, pediatrician, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston; author, Raising Healthy Eaters: 100 Tips for Parents

"This is a fantastic reference for any parent who has twins or multiples. This book provides exceptional insight for parents of twins that can relieve stress and anxiety in a fast-paced life."
Eric D. Schultz, D.O., M.P.H., pediatrician, Duke University Medical Center

Format: Paperback
Twins 101 is both informative and practical. Dr. Le-Bucklin's approach to understanding twins from conception, through delivery and into infancy is simple an easy to understand. I wish this book was around when I was pregnant with my twins. By the time I discovered Twins 101, my twins were 2, and even then, I still learned new and useful information. Twins 101 is everything an expecting parent of twins needs to know. Dr. Le-Bucklin is a mom of twins, as well as a pediatrician. It comforts me in knowing she has been through it and understands it on a medical level, as well someone who has personally experienced the joys of twins.

I'm a homeschooling Mama of 4 children and am expecting identical twin girls just after Christmas or New Year's 2010. When my husband and I found that we were expecting twins, the first thing we did was try to find as much information about twins and multiple pregnancy as we could. I've purchased 2 other books about twins, and I must say Dr. Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin's book is THE BEST!! The information she presents is straightforward and easy to read and understand. She touches on the most important topics and has wonderful little "tips" and fun facts throughout the book. The fact that Dr. Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin is a mother of identical twins herself (not to mention a pediatrician!)made me 100% comfortable and enthusiastic to read the book. There are special considerations for identical twins such as TTTS, and the author included lots of information on this topic as well as valuable resources.

The thing that really struck a chord with me was the genuine warmth and caring that you feel coming from "Dr. M.O.M". You really get a sense that you're listening to a friend who really cares and who wants the best for you and your babies! Some of the other books I've read lacked this key element compeltely and actuallyleft me with feelings of fear and insecurity about having these babies! The encouragement yet honesty Dr. Khanh-Van Le-Bucklin delivers in Twins 101 was such an encouragement! I'll have this book on hand for years to come and will happily recommend it to anyone expecting twins!

I originally bought this book when it first was published and agreed with many of the other positive reviews, but did not have a chance to post my own review until now. I have recently had a chance re-read this book and still find that "Twins 101" is a great resource for expectant mothers of multiple.

Dr. Le-Bucklin brings together medical expertise and personal experiences in a concise, easy to read and understand format. This book is well organized and can be used as a reference. I find the tips and factoids outlined throughout the book very useful and easy to refer back to, as the tips/factoids are appropriately placed in the chapter topics. Also, the size of this book makes it easy to transport anywhere and is perfect for reading lying down (such as if you wanted to read in bed or are required to be on bed rest). This book also makes a great gift! Highly recommended!

Twins 101, by a pediatrician and mother of twins, is an odd book, sometimes drawing on her experiences and other times on research. This makes it hard to tell which tips are based on universal experiences and which are mere anecdotes from Dr. Le-Bucklin's own life.

There's a lot of useful stuff in here, such as shopping lists and health advice but other times the tips are trivial. One recommends dressing twins alike in increase a mother's 'bragging rights'. Another recommends buying a ball for the twins to play with. There's a section with advice on videoing the birth, an idea I find utterly distasteful.

I got some good nuggets from this book but generally found it a lot less useful than Raising Twins: From Pregnancy to Preschool by Dr. Shelly Vaziri Flais. Unlike Twins 101, Raising Twins focuses on general advice of use to all families and shys away from presenting individual anecdotes as data.

My daughter is having twins in April. I bought this book for me to more fully understand the responsibilites, difficulties, and the JOYS of having twins. I found it very helpful - I counted my blessings many times things have gone well with our twins. The author discusses the realities of premature birth, breastfeeding, and all kinds of problems that can arise. Very good book.

What's nice about this book is it's broken down into 50 separate tips that you can easily search and read quick and come back to. You don't necessarily have to read the book in order; you can flip through and come back to sections. It's also a small book that fits in my purse so I can carry it around for a quick read when needed.

Excellent book! This is a must-have reference for any parent with multiples (twins, triplets, etc). Dr. Le-Bucklin has provided insight that allows parents to understand the sometimes overwhelming neonatal intensive care unit experience. This book is extremely well written!
