Twin Milestones

The first year of a baby’s life is full of milestones – first smile, sleeping through the night, rolling, solids & trying different foods, teeth, crawling, words, standing, walking etc.

When it comes to twins, there are a few special twin milestones:

  • Levels of interaction 🀝 such as the first time touching, holding hands, laughing together, biting & chatting with each other; and
  • Game changersΒ πŸ‘ŠΒ such as their first bath together in the big bath, sitting in the trolley together, and sleeping in their own cot.Β 

These 9 month old sleeping beauties have been sharing a cot up until the weekend where they finally moved into their own cots! The boys moved into separate cots at 6 months as they were big babies and started their wrestling earlyΒ πŸ€Όβ€β™‚οΈ. The girls were happy sharing cots with each other & enjoyed each others warmth until last week where one would climb on top of the other in the middle of the night trying to wake up them up to play!

With the boys, and now the girls we put their cots side by side so their twin is closeby and just a reach away! The boys loved playing with each other through the railings and the girls are already standing facing each other to chat & touch each other through the railings when they wake up 😍

What other ‘twin milestones’ can you think of??

Quiz for your toddlers or preschoolers

Harley | Ethan
I asked the boys these questions separately without the other being able to hear. They may have identical DNA but they are totally different and gave completely different answers. It was however interesting that their favourite animal was also the thing that they are scared of! Harley responded straight away and was very confident of his answers. Ethan was pretty disinterested or unsure of his answers, and I had to ask him some questions a few times before I got a response.
