38. Hats

Putting different hats on identical-looking children gives a clear visual clue as to who’s who. Redditor Nick0fTime’s parents took that idea one step further, in fact, since he and his twin looked so much alike that even his mom couldn’t tell them apart. As a result, then, she gave her boys hats emblazoned with their respective names so that no-one would be confused.

37. Color-coded clothes

Another trusted way to tell twins apart is assigning each baby a color and dressing them only in that hue. Choose each child’s shade wisely, though, as one twin has noted that their wardrobe while young seems to have guided them toward their favorite color later in life.

36. Head shapes and sizes

There are some differences in twins that only a parent can discern. For instance, a mom or dad may be able to pick out their identical children by noting slight differences in their head sizes and shapes. On this occasion, though, when the babies wear hats, it’s no longer clear who’s who.
