Uncommon Baby ClothesUnusual baby clothes
According to Keith Reed, Managing Director of the twins and Multiple Births Association (Tamba), it is important for a parent to help several babies to build their own identity. You can do this by changing their clothes and using their unique name instead of naming them "the twins" or "the triplets". "When they are used to always being together or always in the same clothes, they become more desperate, the older they get, the more they can become when you try to make changes.
"But that doesn't mean they deny their particular relation as one of several. "Instead, it allows them to see themselves as individual beings who have the added benefit of being part of a multi-unit. Says she sometimes clothes her daughter in the same wardrobe for comfort. "I think if the gals were the same, my point of view would be very different.
It is not a deliberate choice to clothe them the same way every single night. "But for some twin mothers, they deliberately chose not to wear their kids in appropriate or similar attire. Marc Cohen, 37, PR manager from northern London, is the father of the seven-year-old monozygotic twin Izzy and Heidi.
Everybody is different," he says, "but it is difficult for us to understand why someone wants children to wear the same dress, especially if they are the same. "You have your own character and you are your own nation and from such a young age that you have to dress the same way, you remove quite a bit from your character.
If you have a bunch of children, it might be simpler to dress them up like that. "However, as they get older, it is really difficult to promote their personality with monozygotic Gemini, so I think it is rewarding to work a little more to give them their own personality.
Motherwell's Motherwell mother and mother of Gemini's Phoebe and Jasper, six, is opposed to attracting Gemini and says that Gemini's tendency for a parent to do it is because it is seen as "cute". "Humans are intrigued by twin babies, and they like to see them as an enchanting double. "Gemini will always have a particular connection.
Other clothing does not harm this option. "It is rather an important move to enable them to flourish as individual siblings in their brother and sister relations instead of their identity being dominant. "Linda Blair, a clinician who wrote a textbook on brother and sister relations, says that there is a strong interest in multi-birth s and that often enough a parent tries to increase the appeal by making their child look the same.
However, she cautions that it can have a detrimental effect on the child itself and its siblings. "Especially in the view of their mothers and fathers, kids want to be seen as something different from all others. "By duplicating them, you will not in any way hurt them in the long run, but what you are doing is endangering the heat of their relation.
"It'?s not good for the brother and sister relation to clothe them and put them in a pit. "Are you dressing your twin babies in the same outfit?
