 I am so sick of people with "irish twins" telling me that they know what its like to have 2 sets of twins.  NO YOU DONT!  I can say this because I have had irish twins and actual twins(twice).  The issues are different.  Not saying one is harder than the other but the experience couldnt more different then if you had a pet tiger and a pet elephant.  Both are dangerous but both have their own and unique issues and experiences..good and bad.  So STFU.

If you dont have multiples, you wont even begin to understand so I am not even going to answer your snarky comments.

And just so I dont have to edit later.  I have a 17 year old, 16 year old, and 14 year old.  I also I have 5 year old (natural) twins, a 34 month old, and 18 month old (natural) twins.

I have Irish twins. developmentally speaking I would THINK natural twins would be easier in some ways sincethey are generally on the same level developmentally. in fact their pediatrician told me last time "I bet you wish they were twins huh? so they could entertain each other more easily?"

but I'm not foolish enough to say it is easier or harder either way! lie you said- both have challenges and advantages too!
