“If giving attention to one, must always be touching other so as to avoid twin rivalry,” she says.
“At least that’s what I tell myself.”
Bec is also mum to Oscar, five, and Billie, three, with her former football star hubby Chris Judd.

Expert’s Top Tips On Keeping Twins Happy
Cheryl Fingleson, an expert from The Sleep Coach, shares her expertise and top tips on how to keep twins happy!
1. Your Twins Can Sleep Together
Get babies bonding!
“Usually twins start off by sleeping together in the same cot, if you have good sleepers, this works really well,” she says. “This is also a great way for them to bond.”
2. White Noise Can Help Block Out The Other Twin’s Cries
“While some babies may not be bothered by their twin’s cries, others may have trouble sleeping through the sound, and this would be the time to consider separate cots,” Cheryl says.
“White noise in the room is very useful for blocking out the sound of crying.”
3. Have A Routine
“I suggest you start a simple routine and apply it in your own way. This will give you some direction and help you get through your day.”

4. Stay On Top Of Their Feeds
If you’re breastfeeding, it may be worth expressing milk and putting it in a bottle, so you can feed one on the boob and the other by bottle while in their bouncer, then swap for the next feed.
“It is important to not let your babies go hungry and don’t keep them awake so long so they get overtired,” says Cheryl. “The secret to them eating and sleeping well is by giving them encouragement and consistency.”
5. Happy Mummy, Happy Babies!
“Organise a list of family and friends ready to be called on if you feel you are not coping the first 3 months from birth,” Cheryl says.
“The cheapest help is family and friends. Also nannies trained especially for twins are extremely helpful.”
6. Stay Calm
“To calm frustrated crying babies one needs to pick up and cuddle which is physical and very challenging for one tired person to manage on your own.”
According to research, here’s why Babies Shouldn’t Be Left To Cry.
