5 FAQ I Get Asked As A Twin Mother

Everyone loves twins, right? They're a real curiosity. There's a few questions that I always get asked as a twin mum, so I thought I'd share the answers with you.

Their Gender
What are they? Two girls? Two boys? Actually, they're a girl and a boy. That's my daughter (points to the baby dressed in pink) and that's my son (points to the baby dressed in boy). Yes I am one of those parents who play into colour stereotypes for their children.

Are They Your First?
Yes they are my first. They were my first pregnancy and subsequently my first children. I went from a mother of zero to a mother of two in just under five minutes.

Are They Identical?
Even after finding out that they are different genders, people still ask this question. No they are not identical and it's extremely rare that they would be identical. My daughter and son look completely different to each other in terms of skin colour, hair colour, eye colour, birthmarks, ect. 

Are You Going To Have Any More Kids?
Whoa hang on, I only gave birth five minutes ago. I haven't even thought of what I'm going to have for dinner tonight, let alone plans for future children. 

Did You Have IVF?
No I didn't have IVF. Who knows the reason why I have twins, it could be PCOS, genetics, medication or my weight? The possibilities are endless.

Mamas, what questions are you constantly asked as a parent?


AA Skincare Amla & Clary Sage Rejuvenating Shampoo

AA Skincare Amla & Clary Sage Rejuvenating Shampoo

A balancing and moisturising shampoo with vitamin c rich Amla (Indian Gooseberry) to strengthen roots. Naturally soothes and protects against scalp irritations, leaving hair shiny and roots strong. Also, has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and protect against scalp irritations.

I've mentioned this before but the harsh, hard London water just doesn't agree with my scalp. I find my scalp is constantly irritated no matter what I do or use. Shampoos which promise to help the problem simply don't or just make my hair look like a greaseball. Since using AA Skincare Amla & Clary Sage Rejuvenating Shampoo* (£5.94) my scalp has become less irritated and even a bit stronger (double win). It has a nice lather to it (something which I love) and doesn't leave my hair feeling dry or oily. I do however find if I've used styling products on my hair, it does mean I need to do a double wash when using this shampoo. Overall for me it's a great daily use shampoo which keeps irritation at bay.

What's your favourite shampoo?
