How do you tell your identical twins apart?

I wonder how many identical twins were originally the other twin.

Does that make sense?

Draw a little x on one of their feet. Redo it after every bath. Duh.

This is why I'm glad there is no history of twins in my family.

Identical twins are random. Doesn't matter if you have a family history or not

Me too! My mom's friend put bracelets on her identical DDs, but I have always wondered.

My husband's cousin has identical triplets. They kept the hospital bracelets on until they could tell them apart and color coded them, each girl wears a certain color clothes.

A friend of mine had twins.  They were actually fraternal, but looked identical!   When the girls were babies, she kept little name bracelets on them.   One day, she took off the bracelets to give the twins a bath.....and couldn't recognize who was who.   She bundled them up and headed to the hospital they were born at.... they had to match up their footprints to tell her who was who.     The nurse suggested she paint their toenails different colors, which she did.
