    What happens when one identical twin is rejecting the other twin?

    The twins are 4 to five months old. All that we have heard is that one twin is rejecting the other. If anyone has any answers or can tell us what doctors do in this situation please let us know.

    The only information i can find is on this site,


    Although it is more about teenage identical twins.

    Other sites i've read include problems like dominance (where the dominant twin resents the attention the less dominant twin is getting), and Into subjects involving one boy one girl twins, but if your's are idnetical i assume they are of the same sex.

    sorry, this is all i can find for now, i will continue looking smile

    Do you mean that they are "conjoined" twins? Identical twins are physically separate. There are several very good resources on the internet - I recommend doing a search to find well-established medical websites, so that the information you find and act upon is reliable.

    Oh, that's a great problem. But in what way does one of the twins reject the other? For now, a very watchful eye over them will help a lot.
