Hi There,

Just looking for anyone that might have some boys that are close in age to mine to compare some notes. My guys will be 1 on February 15th!! We are seeing some fighting already with these little guys. Just wondering if this is all normal and what to do to redirect. Also, we live in the Milwaukee, WI area and would love to meet up with other twins that are their age. We are in a twins club, but it is a huge variety of ages right now.

Hi Katie - My identical twin boys (Aiden & Owen) were born on March 12th, 2008. We just celebrated their 1st birthday!! I'm not sure if I am happy or sad about that! I am finding that my boys always like to be play with the same toy at the same time even if the same thing is sitting right next to them. Being a twin myself, my mom said that my sister and I did the same thing, so I think that's normal. Other than that, they actually seem to play together pretty well. I have 3 older kids as well and the twins just love to follow them around and play with them. The older kids are always getting the twins to laugh. It's so fun.

I was given some information in the hospital about Mothers of Multiples groups to join in my area but haven't joined anything yet. We live in De Pere just outside of Green Bay, not too far from Milwaukee. You should let me know if you are ever in the area. I would love to meet you and your family.

I have identical twin boys born on Feb. 22nd. My guys fight ALL the time. I was looking for advice as well. One twin seems to be really mean and is constantly hitting and scratching his brother. They steal eachothers sippy cups all the time. I'm not sure what to do either. I'm in Michigan, but if you find anything that works let me know. We have also had a few biting problems. Gook Luck!

My boys were born Februay 10th 2008 and they too always want the toy that the other has. They are actually getting better about fighting over the toys and just in the last week just seem to enjoy playing with the same toy together.. it is really nice to see! This works best with large toys like the Fisher Price Learning Home, the Fisher Price block center and our LeapFrog Learning Table. Of course, they have their "grabbing toys from each other moments" especially when they are tired or cranky. We are working on sippy cups now and just yesterday they started knocking the sippy cups out of the others mouths when drinking.. they thought it was a game. I am in Maryland... so a little far for a playdate, but good luck!

Hi. My boys just turned 1 on January 23 and January 24th. They were originally due on February 5th though. My boys fight over toys a lot more now. They are also into hitting each other in the head with toys and then laughing when the other one cries! Obviously not a habit I`m too thrilled about :( When they start fighting/hitting each other I always just try to give them each something else to play with. It doesn`t always work but it does sometimes distract them enough that they forget about whatever they were fighting over in the first place. Despite the fighting, I just love them at this age! They are so much fun and I love to watch them interact. Even though they do fight every once and a while, it is so nice that they always have a playmate!

We are in the process of transitioning from baby food to more solid food as well as switching from formula to milk. We currently give the boys a morning and night time bottle of milk...any ideas on when we should cut these bottles out of their feeding schedules??

My boys were born April 16 at 37 weeks. They always want what the other one has even if there are 2 identical things. If one stays still too long the other one will poke their eye or grab their hair. I just try to distract them often with something the 3 of us can do such as read a book. One is a bit more advanced than the other in their ability to cruise around furniture.

My boys were born March 15th. They are a little behind on some of their milestones but as they become more aware of each other we suffer from fighting as well. If they lay one next to the other, they start taking each others toys/pacifiers almost immediately. If one touches the other, it sets them off...



I'm not sure I have a good way to deal with it yet. I try to redirect them to a different toy but the second I walk away, it's "I want the one that he has" syndrome all over again. I try to begin the lessons of 'that's not nice' and 'we share with each other'. The other day I got so frustrated at the younger one that had then taken 3 pacifiers from the older that I picked up the older one, set him in the high-chair with a new paci and took all of the other pacifiers away from the younger. He cried for about 1 minute until he realized he didn't care because it wasn't something that brother had that he wanted any longer......



What are you seeing? We are in Denver and I haven't joined a club yet...
