The Twins Thread..

No not the hilarious Danny DeVito/ Arnold Schwarzenegger fish out of water comedy but the little human babies who look alike.

Yes, that's right. I'm having twins!

Well, Mrs Agaliarept is having them but you get my meaning.

Any advice, good places to get twin style baby equipment, stories and general support is massively appreciated!

Shouldn't there be two threads?

Agaliarept - 15 Sep 2017 09:24:03 (#3 of 162)

There is but the other one is waiting for the opportune moment to slip in and pretend to be this one without anyone noticing.

You're joining George Clooney, but at least you're not 56 years old.

Expect to be extremely busy, 24/7, for a while. Start making plans for family network to come and make relief efforts.

Watch out for the evil one.

I've warned the Mrs about this. I'll just spot the one with the handlebar moustache and top hat.

Thanks Wibble definitely expecting the tireds like never before, I can see there being little or no down time.

Clooney as an amateur though, I already have two kids!!

Thanks Anchorman!

Congrats Aga! This time round, sharing nappy changing duties will mean exactly that!

A few doors away are a pair of identical twin sisters, 7 yr olds, generally very cute, and troublesome for their mother who really can't tell them apart when they're trying. All the best!

Thanks Si.

Were about to sit down and make a list of everything different that we will need from our previous two non twin non identical kids.

Friends of mine had identical twin. They decided to dress them differently and treat them as different individuals from the start. Having two different/separate sets of clothes, bottles/etc. from the start was an effort, but they thought it worthwhile. Their decision was based on research/study they'd done about bringing up twins.

The girls turned out to have distinct personalities and both have done very well.

They decided to dress them differently and treat them as different individuals from the start.

That's what we've said, none of this same outfits nonsense. That's just gimmicky.

Agaliarept - 15 Sep 2017 16:24:16 (#18 of 162)

Thanks Helbel will register with them!

SirensOfAcreLane - 15 Sep 2017 16:27:03 (#19 of 162)

The neighbour's twins don't dress identical but do dress very similarly, observing them they are somewhat different personalities but still very close, and they share their wardrobe, which suits them both as they get a wider choice of colours and so on.

At university, there were an identical set of twin female Electrical Engineering undergrads, notable in a year of 100+ males, and because they dressed identically, with subtle differences in jewelry. They were very pleasant socially, but the visual effect if you didn't know them could be creepy, and confusing.

Aga, unless I've missed it earlier, do you know which permutation, genders, non-or identical you're having?
