I was at Chick-fil-a a few weeks ago, in the play area for my son, and feeding the girls. 2 moms with their sets of identical twins came in to let their girls play. Naturally, we started talking, and one of the moms could guess which of mine was Baby A, simply by comparing the girls' faces. She told me usually Baby A has a rounder/broader face or head. So I started asking around. My husband is an identical twin, and this is true for him and his brother, and it has been true with 6 other pairs of identicals I've inquired about. So, I'm interested to know just how common this actually is!!

So, if your twins are identical, who has the rounder face? A or B?

A (Amélie) for me too. I've heard this before as I had an adult ID twin pick out instantly who was my Baby A...he said he's always right when he uses this theory as well :).

That is how we tell everybody what the differences are! They always say that we look exactly the same but it's SO not true! That's the main way people can tell us apart. (I am 21) Sorry if this is just for little kids, but I found this awesome!

My baby B has the rounder face, BUT he was the closest to the cervix. When they were "labeled" A and B, he was slightly further away so he was labeled B. They moved around a lot and if I didn't have a csection, he would have been born first. I hope that makes sense!

Very Interesting! My girls' faces look exactly the same, but A's head is wider at the top. I was figuring it was because she was head down the whole time and engaged pretty early on, and I guessed the cause of B's narrow head shape was because she was born backward. She had no time to be engaged in the birth canal, lol.

How do we define A and B for C/S babies?

People have always told me Gabby (who was born first) has a rounder face--though I don't really see it--but Gabby was only born first because of the c/s. So in my mind that makes her baby B. She was transverse across the top. I was in labor for about 8 hours before the c/s and Bianca was vertex and in the birth cannal and would have been born first if I had not had a c/s.
In the avatar pic Gabby is in the Green.

Baby A is the one closest to the cervix, so Bianca would have been A, and Gabby would be B.
