I thought moms with twins would be the best to ask for advice...



I do not have twins... I have a just turned 1 year old and a just turned 2 year old....

but...my 1 year old I am sleep training in the nights (she has no problem in the day) and also trying to ween her off of night nursing because I do not daytime nurse her...

They both sleep in the same room...with me as well but I do not have another room to put them in at the moment so we are all sharing a room!! :S

My advice question is how to you do it all in the same room? Any advice? Plus because they have to share a room!

no, I'm not nursing, but the girls get up in the night and want a bottle. I've been working on stopping that by slowly watering down their bottles and it seems to be working. for the last week they both have been getting up only once a night.

Caryn are you still nursing? I wonder because this is another issue I am having too! My 1 year old will wake up and want to be comforted and she wants to be nursed still in the night. I dont nurse her in the day.

My twins share a room, they are just over a year, during the day when they nap one could scream bloody murder and the other doesnt care, but at night, if one is crying, we need to take one out of the room and calm her down then put her back. but for the most part they do really well for sharing a room.

My 1 year old (I dont have twins they are 1 year apart) when she wakes up in the night I dont know if I should just leave her and let her cry it out or actually try to soothe her back to sleep worrying she will wake her sister up. In the day there is usually no problem when they are together if they need a nap at the same time. But my bigger problem is with the little one because she still uses me as a teddy bear or wants to be nursed and I am getting tired!!

my twin girls share a room and they both have their own toddler beds. we have a night time routine, which is quiet time at 6pm, read a book sing twinkle twinkle, them up to bed turn on the music and kisses good night, they are pretty good about it. once in a while they get out of their beds and bang on the door, and i got up say night night and put them back to bed. i do find them in each others bed once in a while.
