twin dads too

Hey don’t forget about the twin dad listeners too. Haha love the podcast, I found this channel it’s so helpful we love it !

sarahaline ,

Great!

I found out I was carrying mono di twins and haven’t been able to get enough of this podcast since. It gives me comfort hearing all of the anecdotes and makes me feel like I am doing my part in research and preparation. Thank you!

...are dads not people too?

First off, great resource for twin parents. Learned a lot from these, our twins are 2.5 now and I've been listening since before they were born. Having said that, it's frustrating that it's moms mentioned 95% if the time. In the show itself, on the ads (hey moms, are you ever feeling bla bla etc), the guests, it's almost entirely moms this and mommies that. Dads have twins too.
