I have 7 month old boy/girl twins. I keep reading about how everyone has their babies on these perfect schedules and I'm feeling like I'm doing something wrong. My boy wakes up anywhere between 5 and 6:30 every morning and my girl gets up anywhere between 6:30 and 8:00. They nap whenever they are tired. Their naps range between 30 minutes and 2 hours. Sometimes they get up at the same time, sometimes one sleeps 30 mins and the other 2 hours. The only thing that is consistent is dinner (5:30) and bedtiime (7:30).
I have tried to get them on the same schedule, but I can't. One requires a lot more sleep than the other (so waking her up is NOT an option. she is beyond miserable if you do that) and one needs to eat more often than the other.
Is anyone else just flying by the seat of their pants every day? I really wish I could get them on a schedule to make it easier on all of us. Plus, I truly believe that babies are happier when they know exactly what to expect. Anyone have any advice on what I can do or should I just relax and see if things fall into place eventually?
