How do I sort this? DTs are 7 months, yes only 7 months. Twin E is a very happy baby and content to play with the toys she can crawl to. Twin A is a bit less happy and must play with the toys E has. This involves her climbing on top of E to take toy away, and she doesn't always climb off! Several times I have had to take her from E's head and just now found A lying on top of E, E screaming lustily, whilst A plays with E's rattle and dribbles on her head.

I know they are young, but is there anyway I can stop A behaving like this to E?

This sounds really silly!

Hi, I don't know if this helps, but multiples often seem to 'scrap' more than singletons. I have 8yo triplets (+10yo+13yo) and was recently relieved to hear grandmother of 3yo twins at a loss how to manage their competitiveness - we swopped stories!!
Generally I've always had strict rules about a few toys which have personal ownership, whilst others must be shared. I sometimes have to enforce what is whose & take something away from the child that has grabbed it - still!
It seems to be to do with competition and attention - especially your attention! I would encourage you to choose how you want to enforce what is whose and, most importantly, stick to it! Good Luck!
