comment Can I prepare baby cereal in advance?
Thank you! Maybe I should try it in advance to see if they'll take it. I'm assuming that food-safety-wise it's ok? (And it's 3 of them actually :) I'm somewhat terrified)

comment How do you get a 7 month old to keep their hands soaking to treat Paronychia?
Why don't you go to a doctor and see if it's necessary? You don't want to play around with an infection, it can be extremely dangerous.

comment When do twins know their own names?
(We do have cute little different-colored bracelets on them though for everyone else - babysitters, family members, etc - and a few of them have thanked me for it :) )

comment When do twins know their own names?
@JeremyMiller - when I first found out I was having identical twins I freaked out a bit ;) We ended up keeping their hospital bracelets (anklets really) on for the first few weeks, plus followed the nailpolish idea in this post: parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/1533/… . After about 3-4 weeks from them coming home from the hospital, I was pretty confident about being able to tell them apart, and now I can hardly understand how it's possible for people to mix them up :) They just seem so different to me.

comment At what age does a baby recognize themself in a mirror?
I was just wondering if this was different for identical twins :) (See my recent Q parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/11343) But to contribute to the discussion-I just put one of my nearly-1-year-old id twins in front of a mirror the other day, & while she was very excited & seemed to think it was another baby, she did not seem to think it was her twin. She just...reacted slightly differently than she does when she sees her twin. I don't think she fully realized yet that it was herself, but she did realize that she could raise her hands and the baby in the mirror would do the same...

@Joe - understood. I just wondered if the general timeframe was later.

comment When do twins know their own names?
I wonder if this is true. There must be some delay (longer than if they weren't twins). There are just so much fewer opportunities to address them separately than for a singleton... There definitely are times, but not nearly as often. (Even if I address one when they're both in front of me - how would they know which one I was addressing? It would have to be from individual one-on-one time, and considering that they have a lot less of that than normal parent-child interaction, there must be some sort of delay...)
