#58 I am a twin and I tell you : you do not wish to have twins or multiples. The risks of premature birth are higher (among other things, you should read about that), it is hard to take care of more than one kid at the same time (and expensive) and our psychological development is different, especially since everyone consider that we are "the twins" instead of "A" and "B". Babies may look cute when they are not yours but it's a great responsability.
34 is wise, though just a minor quibble, it's footprints for newborns. I do hope they do this in Singapore? 93's suggestion is also good. I wouldn't feel too bad, OP. I bet this is WAY more common than people might think. I'm not a parent but I've never understood how parents say they can tell by the personalities. They're newborns, how much personality do they have?
CONGRATULATIONS. Twins are fun. Especially twin girls. Even more so when they're teenagers. Good luck. OK, FYL.
we labeled my twin cousins. they always wore shirts with their names on them and they also had anklets with their names on them.
#13: Good ideas for every parent of twins. OP, just because you could not tell them apart does not mean you are bad parents. They look EXACTLY THE SAME! Anyone could make that mistake. Try what #13 said, they put names on the labels of clothing at daycare centers.. why not take advantage of that for your own kids?
