I have 5 mos. old twins, boy and girl. They are sometimes on the same schedule for eating and sometimes not which I am ok with so that I get to spend some 1 on 1 time with each. I want to get them both to bed tho at the same time but am afraid that they will keep each other up for naps and bed. 1 has been in the crib for naps and nighttime, but the other in the swing more than I know he should be. Do I just put them down at the same time and let them cry it out until they both stop? Or will 1 perpetuate the other and it will be a crying fest? Also, 1 sleeps about 6-8 hours at night and the other wakes up every 3 still! I would love to sleep for a longer stretch and have them sleep as well! What to do here for sleeping for everyone?
