Daylight-Saving Causes Twin arrival problems?

By Chris V. Thangham     Nov 7, 2007 in Entertainment
A mother gives birth to twins during the Daylight Saving Time period switch and is causing confusion who is the eldest baby among them because of changing of the time in the clocks.
Laura Cirioli gave birth to twins last Sunday morning at WakeMed Hospital in Cary, North Carolina. Peter Sullivan Cirioli, the first baby was born at 1:32 am Sunday and his twin sister, Allison Raye Cirioli, arrived thirty four minutes later at 2:06 am. But because of Daylight Saving Time, the clock was pushed back to 1:06 am. As a result, she becomes the elder child of the two based on birth registration records.
Laura Cirioli didn’t think of this problem until later after Peter was born, it is surprising to them this happened. Both her and her husband Jason, don’t care who was born first, they are just glad both are healthy. They however think it may cause problems later with rivalry between them.
Jason said they will let the twins to sort out that problem and they don’t want to get into the middle of it.
There will be plenty of sibling rivalry, but since twins get along well better than other siblings, they should have no problems.
Who do you think is the eldest of the two? I read long time back in an article, it said though the eldest is the first one that is delivered, the one that comes first is conceived the last in the womb, if that is true then Allison will still hold the title.
