  • just remember each baby is different. one may start way before the other. one may start walking at 10 months, the other not till 14. each baby works at their own pace, and some work on other things more than others. like some babies prefer to work on their vocal skills more than mobile, and vise versa. as long as she doesn't show any signs of delayed development, i don't think anything is wrong. but it's always ok to ask the pedi at the next appt., GL

  • Children do not all develop and learn to do things at the same time, and that is totally normal. One of my children walked at 9 months after crawling for a few months. The other child never crawled much, but walked at a year. If you are truly concerned, however, ask your pediatrician to assess the second twin to make certain that he feels she is developing normally.

  • I have twin girls too. They didn't do everything at exactly the same time. They sound like they are doing what they are supposed to at their age.

  • Don't start comparing them. They are individuals who will do things differently and at different times.

  • Why is this in the tween section?

  • She probably thought it meant "Twins" and not "tweens" :P

  • I am a mom of twin boys who are four. You will learn each twin has his.her own unique personality. They also have strengths and weaknesses. One twin may seem ahead then the other twin will catch up. Try not to worry, if you are concerned as the pediatrician at your next visit.
