With two children already, and an always composed public presence, it is easy for us to assume Rebecca Judd will flawlessly float through her next parenthood challenge. But just like every expectant mum her mind is busy with what lays ahead, especially given this time she will be bringing home two babies instead of one.
The television presenter and AFL WAG has turned to her Instagram followers for help.
The glowing mumma put a call out to fellow mums of twins seeking their advice.
“How many weeks gestation did you deliver at?” she wrote.
“At what age could you tell them apart? Straight away, hours, days, weeks, months or still can’t? Any tips? I’ve packed some nail polish for one of them.”
Attention identical twin mums! Just curious: 1. How many weeks gestation did you deliver at? 2. At what age could you tell them apart (😂🙊)? Straight away, hours, days, weeks, months or still can’t? Any tips? I’ve packed some nail polish for one of them. EDIT: thanks everyone for your replies. Soooooo many good tips! I’ll definitely be putting some of them to good use. On a side note- gosh there are a lot of identical twins out there!
And boy did they answer, with more than 500 comments posted.
“Identical sisters were born at 41 weeks, mum could tell them apart from the get go, however, dad still has trouble and they’re now sixteen. PS. Mum says to label your baby photos, you’ll regret it if you don’t!,” one follower wrote.
“We never dressed them alike which helped and kept the hospital tag on their tiny ankles for as long as possible. Good luck very exciting times,” another follower added.
It was clear Rebecca was grateful for the overwhelming response.
“Thanks everyone for your replies,” she wrote.

While it has seen her the victim of some disgusting bullying online, this latest post shows the amazing support that can be just a click away.
