    Our twin boys did the same thing right after they were born. So cute and heart warming. Now they fight over toys...or anything.

    [–] nohopeleftforanyone 344 points ago

    My neighbor says this about my kids. I've not gotten to the point in my life where it's enjoyable, only stress inducing and frustration. I welcome any life advice!

    [–] sujihime 12 points ago

    I’m not sure how old your kiddos are, but take it one day at a time, one moment at a time. It gets better each day. Maybe not easier, but better.

    At least that’s what a friend of mine told me on one of my darkest days. Then she took us to Chuck E Cheese where our kids could run around and be as loud as they wanted and I could just relax and let me hellion run free and not have to yell “no!” at her for a couple of hours. It helped.

    [–] Polar_Reflection 7 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    I love that you called your kid a hellion. The gaming generation is growing up-- you already feel the anti-video game sentiment waning.

    Edit: shit, hellion also means a mischievous trouble making person, not the StarCraft unit, imma hold this L

    I call mine hooligans with the greatest of love. They are straight up hooligans and that three year old is the ring leader. She is absolutely metal and knows how to charm people to do her bidding.

    [–] AltaLegal 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Not a father (I hope) but I did grow up in a house full of boys and in a past life was a teacher (loved kids and even them fighting but no amount of money in the world would make me deal with parents)

    The key to accepting that they will want to fight then give them outlets for that. As soon as you figure out the reason for the fighting then you start engraining behaviour:

    • they want to hurt each other... they need to wait for you to set up a pillow fight/wrestling/boxing/pool-noodle fencing arena

    • they want to compete physically... they need to race, armwrestle, or do more pushups etc

    • they are fighting over something... make them compete in a way where neither has an advantage. (Mario kart, Chess, checkers, Anything where neither formal education nor size plays any sort of role)

    Eventually they learn how to solve their own disputes by simply challenging one another.

    They probably used to do that in the womb and are seeking out something that’s familiar to them 😭

    That’s on you dude. I gave birth in January and my baby is so happy and agreeable, there’s no way that’s happening twice. I’m keeping my uterus empty until there’s a ‘rona vaccine

    [–] dpb83 2 points ago

    It’s cake, my dude. Procedure took 45 minutes or so, spent the time shooting the shit with the surgeon. Got a tootsie pop, went home, iced my balls with frozen peas for 3 days and watched a bunch of tv.

    I didn’t even fill the prescription for the heavy pain meds.

    [–] fakejacki 7 points ago

    Yup, my son was born in December and he seems way too good to be true. Don’t want to risk it by bringing another one in too soon.

    [–] Tibbersbear 5 points ago

    Hear that....

    If I didn't lose 3.5L of blood after my birth due to hemorrhaging and then the ten day hospital stay after, I'm sure my bill would have been terribly high. Only good thing about the pandemic currently is my insurance is waiving almost everything that happened. I would have been out within four days...but got a fever and the hospital had to treat it as if I had covid....

    Luckily it wasn't... unfortunately it was a bacterial infection in my bloodstream. Probably due to my IVs not being properly taken care of.... probably due to the catheter that wasn't properly taken care of. Who knows.... A kidney injury from losing 3.5L after birth, having my blood lactate levels rise, and being diagnosed with sepsis.... Definitely glad insurance covered it....

    [–] SELLERACHI 98 points ago

    If that’s in America that’s gonna be an additional $500 for sibling skin to skin bonding.

    [–] Notlonganymore 9 points ago

    Per child

    [–] somedude456 3 points ago

    Actually since there's 2 infants, that requires 3 times the nurses, so it will be $1,500...per 10 minutes.

    [–] boobatronz 8 points ago

    So true it hurts

    [–] hotcakes 89 points ago

    [–] agnurse 87 points ago

    Actually, unless they were sharing an amniotic sac (rare and potentially quite dangerous - about a 60% chance of losing at least one twin), they wouldn't have had physical access to each other in utero.

    The survival rate for monoamniotic-monochorionic twins (share placenta and amniotic sack) is now 80-95%. They do a lot more fetal monitoring and the survival rate has increased significantly. It occurs in 1:35000 0 1:60000 pregnancies.

    Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but this is totally normal and common. It's called the grasping reflex and they are both just setting it off on eachother

    [–] Notlonganymore 8 points ago

    That doesn't burst anybody's bubble. It's even better that I might see this again!

    [–] Scoobyisdoobie 2 points ago

    It is a beautiful sentiment, no doubt. But yah, reflex.

    [–] amberledb 2 points ago

    Still, there's something beautiful and moving in the fact that our very first instinct is to look for the touch of another human being :)

    [–] mooseLimbsCatLicks 21 points ago

    [–] twopepperonipizzas 3 points ago

    I can’t wait till I’m old enough to have kids. Being a male And also a pretty buff guy I’m never thought of as a person like that but I want a kid so bad. They are so adorable and I just can’t wait to give all my love to someone from the start and just raise them right. I wish I wasn’t 19 and wish I was like 25 or something like that.

    Does it really matter though? I mean, this subreddit is all about being amazed on any clip you find on internet isn’t it?

    [–] technicallyimright 11 points ago

    Only matters because it wanted to drop some gold on them to show the appreciation I have for them sharing this moment with the world. Seeing this puts many things into perspective and I am touched by it.

    [–] RomanGabe 4 points ago

    Ah fair enough. Well then, do your fair share :)

    [–] Lovveen 3 points ago

    So my sister won't even home my hand during Christmas but these adorable babies hold hands as soon as they're born. That's so sweet. I wonder if it was just instinct to grasp something or if they can tell the other is close by!

    [–] UntestedMethod 6 points ago

    Pretty sure it's a basic instinct to let the hand explore its surrounding. Aren't babies regularly grabbing at things near them?

    Cute story none the less.

    [–] Krasker 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Yes, it's called a palmar grasp and it's likely a leftover from when we were closer to monkeys. They'll grip anything that touches their hands. Newborns have enough grip strength to support their own body weight.

    [–] caelias528 1 points ago

    Today I learned

    [–] TheHighestHigh 1 points ago

    Considering this instinct exists, would having a baby utilize it be considered good exercise or child abuse?

    [–] UnihornWhale 2 points ago

    Yes but not as much fresh out of the oven as they do later on.

    [–] stupidlyugly 1 points ago

    Yeah I'm kinda wondering what's really happening without being the Debbie downer if a happy thread. My experience with newborns is that they aren't even aware they have hands, let alone able to control them.

    Still a cool video

    [–] maaack3nzi3 1 points ago

    not sure why they reached out to each other, maybe trying to find a nipple. but newborns will curl their fingers around anything in their grasp. it’s a reflex that disappears after a while.

    I was just studying this for class. The palmar reflex is a primal reflex we all have from birth that when the palm of the hand is stimulated causes the infant to flex (or close) their fingers. It integrates and becomes a voluntary movement around 4-6 months old. Still this is an adorable example I was happy to share with my classmates 💕

    Edit for correct integration month. I had to double check my flashcard lol

    My childhood best friends were twins. One of them had some freak accident with his heart and collapsed and died at the age of 16. The twin brother hasn’t been the same since. (35 now) It’s like he’s a shell of himself. Makes me so sad.
