One thing that Tom (the twin boy’s dad) said is that the biggest thing to remember is not to compare each twin, they grow and develop at different stages and despite being twins, should be treated as individuals.
Also, I think the thing to remember with twin mums is that they may have not had an easy time, they may have struggled to conceive, had a hard pregnancy or a tough birth. It’s unlikely to have been easy. The risks involved with twins are high. Not only is the pregnancy hard but once the twins have arrived having it’s a challenge to double absolutely everything throughout their childhood. I didn’t realise until I got to understand more about the life of being a twin but there aren’t many discounts around for twins, from childcare, clothes, shoes, days out or food. Crazy!
Faye, who has the twin boys said her biggest piece of advice is do not be scared to ask for help. Both my twin mammas said to get yourselves out for the day, fresh air, try baby groups, and meet new friends who can be your lifeline.
So if you’re a mum of twins, triplets, quads, hats off to you Mumma - you are doing a fab job and I am in full admiration. You should continually be proud of yourself no matter how tough some days are - at the end of the day you get to experience the greatest love - twin love.
