What's Different About Having Twins?

By January 22, 2013

Follow me on:

Is having twins different than having two children of different ages? What do parents of twins do differently when raising multiples? From the absence of birth order dynamics to the lack of hand-me-downs, there are some things that are very different. From the start, a twin or multiple pregnancy has some distinct medical considerations; with two babies sharing a space, things can get a little bit crowded!

Others argue that there's not much difference. How often have you heard someone remark, "Mine were born 19 months apart, and its just like having twins."

What do you think? Read my take on this question, and leave a comment to share your thoughts.
