That's what we did One girl had all amber colored and the other was honey and butter colored. I could tell them apart from day one but grandma, the hubby and our nanny had a harder time so the necklace helped all of them.

As far as advice goes the best advice I have ever received has been straight from other twin mothers. Books never really helped me much, most of them talked about a "schedule" which I never did. We just lived life to the beat of the girls drum and it worked out just fine. If you decide to go the same route I can tell you that it still results in well adjusted toddlers

I do not know about the area you live but my town has a MOM group (mothers of multiples). We have a playgroup date once a month and a mommy day out once a month. We are all friends on Facebook. It REALLY helps you to feel "normal".
