Dad's Guide to Twins
by Joe Rawlinson, twin pregnancy and raising twins expert
1M ago
Burping is essential for your twins to release air trapped in their tummies after feeding, preventing discomfort and gas. After a good burp, your babies will go from squirming, crying, and agitated to calm and happy. We would always proactively burp our twins right after feeding. This helped prevent their discomfort if we waited. The challenge is that if you’re feeding your twins at the same time, how do you burp both twins when they are finished eating? Let’s talk about some examples of how to burp twins even in some of the complicated situations you’ll find yourself as a father of twins. Be ..read more

Strollers for Twins + One
Dad's Guide to Twins
by Joe Rawlinson, twin pregnancy and raising twins expert

Let’s talk about stroller options for your twins plus one other child. You could have a singleton child and then you have the twins, or you could have the twins and then you have a singleton child. Some of these configurations I talk about below can work for either one of these scenarios. The premise of a lot of the twin strollers I mention below are that you have a standard double stroller with some kind of add-on like a standing stool or a third seat attachment. Thus a lot of double strollers right out of the box are not going to handle twins plus one. They’re built for double occupancy, and ..read more

4M ago
Watching your twins learn to talk at the same time may sound like double the chaos, but did you know there are twin-specific aspects of language development? Language acquisition in twins has long fascinated researchers, and recent studies are shedding new light on this unique phenomenon. Twins, whether identical or fraternal, often share a special bond that goes beyond genetics. They can have their own secret language, known as “twin language,” which helps them communicate with each other before they start speaking in full sentences.

Dad's Guide to Twins
by Joe Rawlinson, twin pregnancy and raising twins expert
6M ago
When you bring your babies home, can you let twins sleep in the same crib? Absolutely. Should twins sleep in the same crib? It depends… At the hospital, the nurses had our twins together in the same bassinet. When we got home, we just continued this pattern. From their time in utero, each twin has constantly been with their sibling. Why not continue? Do twins need their own crib? Current safe sleep recommendations for twins are that each twin has his or her own crib. Let’s look into some of the challenges of this recommendation for twin parents and what worked in our family when our girls were ..read more

Twins share many things but do they have the same blood type? Our identical twin girls share the same blood type and have the same blood type as their mother. However, that doesn’t mean all twins share the same blood type. Yes, twins can have the same blood type. But the answer isn’t that simple. The types of twins you have and the genetics of the parents all come into play when determining your twins’ blood type. Do twins always have the same blood type? No, twins don’t always have the same blood type. Your twins blood type is determined by genetics and their parent’s blood types. Twins ofte ..read more
