In brief: Joyfully!
Having one baby is great; having two is doubly awesome! if mom doesn't have enough breastmilk, just use some formula.
Many things can be done together (mom can help one baby, and dad the other) . . . Such as feeding, burping, changing diapers, reading time, bathing time, etc. . . . When going out, mom can carry one baby, and dad the other. Triplets? Now, that's much harder.

In brief: Love and guidance
Twins present unique opportunities and challenges.
Encouraging others to see your twins as two separate children instead of 'the twins' is important for their development. Many parents of twins will use the same schedule for each (eat at same time, sleep at same time etc) to help smooth the logistics of family life. Allowing each to develop on own schedule and enjoy own interests is important.
