Potty training for twins

Parents with twins will realize that each child is so unique and they develop at their own pace. Even though they are twins, each child is so special. Maybe one of the twins crawled first, and maybe one of the twins walked first. So it's the same thing with toilet learning. Children will be interested in using the toilet at different times. Very often, one twin will go first, and the other twin will follow as a peer and want to do what the other sibling is doing. Other times, and this is completely normal, one twin will want to have nothing to do with using the toilet. That's fine. Please do not pressure twins to be toilet learned at the same time.
