Greater Risk for Multiples?

Some SBS/head trauma cases recently in the news involve twins, reminders that raising multiples brings extra stress...

Raising Twins has a very good blog post about SBS for the parents of twins (indeed, for all parents and caregivers: she emphasizes the importance of educating to all caregivers and being alert for symptoms of PPD)..
