Having Twins - Not Knowing Any Different

You're having twins!

When I found out that I was pregnant with twins I was ecstatic. My father had twin brothers so I was not surprised, as I always knew that there was a chance that I would have twins.

Having twins has been wonderful. So many people ask me how did you ever cope with two babies at the same time. This was my first of two pregnancies and being a mom for the first time I really didn’t know any difference between caring for one baby or two. As I look back to when they were first born I suppose it was double the work, double the feedings, double diaper changes, double the costs, double everything. But you just do what you do and carry on as if it were a single birth.

Feeding Twins at The Same Time

Dad found it possible when the twins were small to feed them both at the same time.

Extra Help With Twins

I am glad that I had the twins first as if I had had my third son first then the twins I may have found it overwhelming. We had my brother-in-law living with us the summer that the boys were born and this worked out quite well when it came to feeding time. My husband and brother-in-law would do many of the late night feedings so that I could catch a few extra winks.

With all three of my boys I hit the jackpot as far as sleeping through the night goes, as by two months old they all slept right through.


Feeding Twins

Unfortunately I was unable to breast-feed and making up bottles did take up a lot of time during my day. In order to feed both boys at the same time when I was alone with them I would always have a car seat close by. One baby would go in the car seat sitting on the floor in front of me with receiving blankets rolled up to prop up the bottle and I would hold the other baby. Then the next feeding I would just alternate babies. This worked quite well.

Grocery Shopping With Twins

Grocery shopping was always a challenge. I went alone one day by myself and found it a bit overwhelming. I took two grocery carts putting a baby and car seat in each cart and pushed one cart while pulling the other. I only did this once as it took me forever to get through the grocery store. After that I would ask a friend or relative to come along with me.

All bundled up and ready to go.

Public Attention with Twins

When out in public pushing a twin stroller so many people would stop and ask me “Oh are they twins” At first it made me feel special but then after awhile it got to be a bit much. Even though they are not identical, when they were babies most people could not tell them apart. So after a few months of hearing “Oh are they twins” I just wanted to say (although I just bit my tongue) Well what do you think? Do they look like twins to you?, Can you tell them apart? I am not really sure if they are twins or not. Hmmm where did the other one come from? When I started my walk there was only one baby in the stroller. When my sister-in-law would be with me I always just wanted to say, no one is hers and one is mine.

"Who Needs Toys We Have Each Other"

When the twins were about five years old I walked into their room one morning and it was a total disaster. There were toys everywhere. Okay I told them it is time to clean up and put away the toys, and get a bit organized in here. Once you are done we can go to the park. A few hours had passed and all that I had heard coming from their room was laughing and playing going on. I stuck my head in the door and of course there they were in the middle of the room and the mess was even worst than it had been originally. I told them no park till this is cleaned up. The afternoon came and went, and my husband had come home for the night. I told him that I had asked the boys to clean up their room. He went to see if they had it completed yet. When he saw the mess he informed them that if they didn’t start the clean up that he was going to clean the room up himself and take away all the toys. An hour later all the toys were put into garbage bags and into the garage until a later date. The funny part of this is that the boys were not upset at all by this. They did not seem to care that all of their toys were gone. After dinner that night they both toddled off into their room and just sat on the floor talking and joking. We had left some paper, pencils and a few books in the room and they utilized those. As long as they had each other nothing else really mattered. After two weeks had passed we returned the toys to them but I don’t really think they really ever missed them.

Twins Best Friends Forever


Today they are 22 years old and they are still the best of friends. I have many stories and many wonderful memories about my boys to share, but for today I will stop here. Thanks so much for reading.



Dr. Spock

The one thing that was a great help to me when my twins were newborns up until they were five or six, was the Dr. Spock Baby Book. I learned a great deal from this book, and it very rarely was out of reach for the first year of their lives.

Excellent hub and I can relate to it since I also have twins. They are grown up now in their late twenties--a boy and a girl. But how can I forget the days of raising them up!

It was tough but so much fun. Now I miss those lovely days so much.

Thanks for taking me back to those sweet memories.

As the mother of twins, a boy and a girl, now aged 24, I have to admit it wasn't easy at time, especially when they didn't sleep all night for a year, and never took naps! Getting their driver's licenses at the same time was daunting...Two of this, and two of that...And twice as much love!

Delores, Remembering back to their second Christmas, I was so excited for them to open up the toys we'd gotten them. They played with the bows and boxes rather than the toys. It was such a fun time.

Children can be so resourceful when it comes to finding anything to play with.

Thanks for stopping by, it was nice for me to revisit this hub.

A lovely read on twins. I could never imagine how a person would cope with two at a time. But the clean up story made me smile. Two of my sons were 2 years apart and we had many similar clean up stories, including putting the toys in the garbage bags. They could not have cared less. Their favorite toys were sticks, blankets, rocks, anything they found lying around. When we gave them the toys back again, they had forgotten all about them.

Great hub! I love reading about other twins. I have an identical twin sister and we have so much fun together. We're closer than close. My mom always talked about us having a secret language when we were little. Now we just have a weird sense of humor were we laugh at things that no one else thinks is funny.

I agree, sometimes the attention can be very annoying. People say "Are you sisters? No wait, Are you twins?" We just smile and say yes lol. Sometimes we even wonder why people are staring at us because we forget we look alike.

Very enjoyable hub. A lot of work goes into raising twins. I am not a twin and they don't run in the family. It must have been such hard work at the time. You take the little things for granted, like a trip to the supermarket and having to lug around two trolleys, taking double the time. At least you are through this stage and survived. Well done you. Voted up and interesting.

My son's half-sister was pregnant with twins. She was only 19 or 20 when they were born. She decided to raise them herself and took them home with her. After four months, she started using drugs and couldn't cope with all three children (she had one child before the twins were born). She came to me and asked me about adoption (I gave a baby up for adoption almost 18 years ago). After thinking hard and praying about it, she gave her twins up for adoption at four months of age. She couldn't take it anymore, as it overwhelmed her too much. And she felt they deserved better. They are now in Kansas with a wonderful adoptive family, and we get pictures of the twins often. Two little girls that are spitting images of my youngest child.

Gordon, I think being a twin would be awesome after seeing how my two sons are so close and how they interact with each other. I was an only child and always wanted a brother or a sister. I do have a 1/2 brother but did not grow up with him. Thanks so much for reading and for your comments as they are always appreciated. It is always nice to hear about hub friends lives.

Gordon Hamilton 5 years ago from Wishaw, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom

I am the eldest of the family, Susan, and when my mother was expecting me, she was told she was having twins. That meant that she was admitted to the new flagship hospital in the county, a couple of towns away, for me to be born, rather than the local hospital. Obviously, in those days there weren't the scans, etc, that there are now and the doctor was only giving his best judgement, which proved to be wrong. I have, however, often wondered what it would have been like if he had been right and I had been a twin. Thanks for the insight! :)

Aww it's very cool and scary sounding at the same time (having twins:). I just had one baby at a time and I was exhausted I've always marveled at how anyone could handle 2! And taking 2 babies grocery shopping - uggghhhh! Like as they get older - that's 4 hands randomly throwing sweets into the cart!

I can totally imagine getting tired of people asking about twins too - any question that can get repetitive gets tiring - like would you like fries with that? Lol

Giselle thanks for the comments. Of course a lot of mothers get asked if their children are twins and I can see it as being a mega compliment but I just got tired of walking through a mall and in the course of an hour being stopped and asked ten times if my children were twins. This would happen every time I would leave the house. It got tiresome after awhile.


Giselle Maine 5 years ago

Congratulations on your wonderful boys. Thank you for raising awareness of how mothers of twins can get tired of always being asked if they are twins. I never knew this and have been careful to avoid asking or to only do it tactfully ever since I read your hub!

It is interesting though, because as a mom of a (currently) 1 yr old and a 2 and a half year old, I frequently get asked by total strangers if my boys are twins! I always take this as a mega-compliment for some reason, I don't know why! Anyhow I explain that the younger is just tall for his age. So, being asked if your kids are twins is not something reserved only for moms of twins!

Anyhow I am so glad I came across your hub now that my children are of age to be around other kids more, that way I am (hopefully) not going to be the annoying mom being nosy about twins.

Mine are fraternal, boy and girl, both a handful. My wife did breastfeed for about 5 months and to this day I get misty with the memory of her lying in bed at three in the morning, one baby on each breast, barely able to hold her head up because she had only concluded her previous feeding a couple of hours earlier and was completely spent. I was so proud of the fact that I was married to this woman. That was the day I became eternally enamored with my family. I am also fascinated by the special bond which seems to exist between my twins. Isn't it a trip?

Wow! 22! Young Men! I wonder what kind of man and woman my twins will be. It keeps me up at night sometimes. But that's, as it should be. Isn't it? Thanks for sharing your memories and awakening mine....Many blessings to you and yours, JR

My husband had two sets of twins 63 years ago; first fraternal boys. Seven years later identical girls. They are grandmothers now and my husband still can't tell the girls apart on the phone. It's funny! He keeps trying questions that will identify them; sometimes it works, other times, he will never know which one he talked to - doesn't want to admit to them he can't tell. The boys sound alike too, but he can tell them apart by the tone of their voices. I had 3 totally different single kids: one blond blue eyed; one brown hair and eyes; last chestnut with green eyes - all same father. go figure.

Mine are identical, age 28, when they were born I had one child not yet two, they were all boys and often were mistaken for triplets. I was very busy. Going to the grocery with them was near impossible so I didn't even attempt that much. We could do nothing but hub about the stupid things people say - "Did you want twins?" one of my favorites - I want to say "did you want to be stupid?"-I had my fourth child a few years later, a girl -we had a lively home, never a dull moment but so much joy. Twins are a special blessing and keep life interesting. Thank you for sharing. I have many stories I could share as well.

I am not a twin; have had no twins, nor are there twins anywhere in the family on either side.

That said, I do know someone who has twin girls..they are identical, and yet, there are subtle differences--but I cannot pick up on those differences unless they are standing right next to each other.

A girl I knew in my school days was a twin, fraternal, and she and her sister were as different from each other as any two people could be, from looks through personality.

It is an interesting study. Did you find, (as I have read about some twins) that your boys developed any kind of "secret language" between themselves that no one else could decipher?

It is different having twins, isn't it? I remember when the doctor had told me about my twins. I was in total shock. I kept saying "No. It is just a big baby." And he had to point out each baby and their heads. I was just so surprised. It's funny I was the first person in my family to have twins and then my sister had twins just 3 years ago. She had the same kind of twins I did. They are identical and one was stealing food from the other one while in my stomach so I had to be carefully monitored. They are a joy to have even though they are both verging on their teen years.LOL
