Every baby is allegedly a blessing. But when you end up with two or three at once, things can get a little hectic.
A recent Reddit thread asked parents of twins how they know they've never mixed their twins or triplets up. The answer? For some parents, they actually have no idea.
i know someone with identical triplets. she said this was her absolute biggest, all consuming fear. they kept the hospital bands on as long as possible, and then used colored sharpies and kept one of each babies feet color coded. The third trip has always been considerably smaller though so she is easy to tell apart (she got less placenta or something). The other two though are completely interchangeable. She said they did the color coding thing for the first few years until the kids knew who they were and could tell each other apart. - hauntingincome1
