We've written about how parents of twins tell the difference between them but wanted to dig a bit deeper with one of those methods - using a bracelet for telling them apart.
This post looks at the best bracelets on the market for telling twins apart while also sharing some tips on what to look for when buying bracelets for your twins.
What to Look for When Buying a Bracelet to Identify your Identical Twins
Buying a bracelet to help identify your identical twins is a relatively straight forward process with there not too much to consider. With that said, we've put together a few tips on things to look for when buying a twin bracelet:
Like anything baby related, you can spend $10 or you can spend $100 dollars and sometimes you'll get what you pay for. Generally from our experience, there's great value to be had around the $20-25 mark with relatively unknown brands off Etsy which we'll share later in the post. Twin bracelets more in the $100 mark, you'll be more paying for the brand which may not be important for you.
Most bracelets for twins are designed for newborns and will generally last for 6-9 months before needing something a bit bigger. By then though, you should have it down pat to which twin is which and not need a bracelet (hopefully!)
How will you identify which twin is which when they have the bracelets on? Will you go by colour or would you prefer to identify them with their actual name on the bracelet? We prefer bracelets for twins that have their names as it feels a bit more personal but you may just prefer to use different colours with the colour red being for Twin A while blue is for Twin B!
