At what age will my twins be comfortable spending the night without eachother?

I have fifteen month old twin girls and my parents want each twin to spend the night with them separately. So they can spend one on one time with each if them. I think thats great and everything but I think they are too young for that yet. My parents do not agree. I really need some help here! I really think they should stay together until they understand were sister is. Im very scared if letting one go and have them be scared without sister. Anyone have some advice for me?

Have the grandparents do one on one time during the day. I wouldn't split them at night unless THEY expressed a desire to be separated for the night. Of course, my girls have only spent 3 nights of their entire lives in different locations.

One on one time is great and all, but my kids are lost without each other at night.

I suppose it depends on the kids though. ;)

Personally, I think at maybe 3 or 4 years old would be more appropriate. I'm a twin and we used to take turns at our grandparents house too. I think it was around 4 or so that we would go alone.
