My baby girls wasn't rolling all around til about 9 months.. As you'll see with two, they do pretty much everything at different times. I don't know about the flat spot..

Hi! I have 13 month old twin boys. They do thngs in their own time. One is a little slower than the other to do them usually and it varies which one depending on the activity.



As for the flat spot, one of our twins is wearing the Starband due to a flat spot - didn't matter what we did he would always end up sleeping on one side of the head - he did have lots of tummy time and we re-positioned him all the time, but he would just reposition himself after we did it. He took to it very quickly and is 18 weeks wearing it and counting...

Hi Elisha, I have twins that are two and a half (boy and girl). They are like night and day in everything. I wouldn't worry if they develop at different times. The flat spot typically means the childs head is in that position more often. The doctor encouraged us to give them plenty of belly time or prop them on their side so the back of their head wasn't always down. Though twins can seem overwhelming at times it really does get easier as they get older, and they will be their best play mates as they grow up.

I have twins - boy and a girl - talk about opposites! It is very normal for babies to do and grasp things on their own and in their own time. If you subscribe to different sites that talk about the development of babies and what they should and shouldn't be doing at that age, you don't have to take them so seriously. Like Starr said earlier, everyone develops differently and in their own time. Don't let things scare you because one is doing something the other isn't, or a web site says they should be doing something by now at their age. It all comes in time, just enjoy watching them and helping them grow!

Dont worry about them doing things or developing differently because they are two individuals and they will do some things slower or faster than the other.



Another way to look at it is that they are two siblings who just happened to share the womb at the same time therefore they are unique

Each baby is different and will develop differently. As long as your doctor isnt worried, you shouldnt be.
As for the flat spot, just rotate them when you put them to bed so theyre always in a different position, and do more tummy time.

i have twin fraternal boys they will be 5 in oct, the younger twin was a little slow on the go, i got him tested and his fine motor skills were about 15months behind, but his speech was faster than the older twin. just keep an eye on it its better to try to fix when they r young because when they r older it will be very frustrating for them. my older twin walked at about 14 months, and the younger didnt start till 21 months well i hope things go well for u it does get a little easier when they get older good luck been there

i have twin fraturnal boys who are 7 months and 1 week (I dont do the corrected thing) and i am a twin. robby is a roller and danny isnt really, they learn and grow at they're own rate. danny does things better then robby,and robby does things better then danny. they're just happy healthy little boys. i wouldn't worry about development unless there is a obvious issue that you and your doctor are conserned about, just keep in mind they are two very different little people. lol. the flat spot is normally from the child keeping they're head in one position alot and since they're skulls are still kinda soft sometimes they get a flat spot from it, we kept ball caps on our boys to help with it cause they didnt like things on they're heads. it will go away with time. hope this helps!
