Hi all Mommies,

I am Shoma, mother of twins a boy and a girl. My 8mths old twins dont sleep at all at night. They wake up every one hour or sometimes even in half an hour. I feel they are not hungry but just wanna suck the whole night. I breastfeed in a lying position. My babies used to sleep at a stretch for 4-5 hours at night at around 4mths till 6mths. But since I shifted to a new city they havenot slept. but now its been more than 2mths that we have settled in our new home.
I give a semi solid at 8pm and around 9:30pm I bathe them , put a dim light, soft music and i breastfeed my baby girl( she doesnt like taking bottlefeed and soother) and my husband bottlefeeds my babyboy. My both babies are completely on breastfeed except before bedtime my son is given bottle and partial breastfeed to make him sleep.
I have heard about cry it out approach...is it effective...any suggestion..please help...what should I do to make my babies sleep atleast 3hrs at a stretch at night...both my husband and I are sleep deprived since past 2mths

Shoma.

Why don't you try to keep them up during the day just keep them busy playing making them very tired so by night time they'll be to tired to stay up they probably will just eat bathe and go straight to sleep that's what I do and did because I have 5 kids my oldest is 3 and I have a set of twin girls that's 2 and a set of twin boys that will be 6 mths on the 12th so as you can see I'm speaking from experience lol.

I do not agree with the cry it out approach. A baby can not understand that mommy needs her sleep and that is why sheis not answering my crys. All they know is that they are crying and no one is responding. Sure the babies might stop crying , but it's only bc they learned that that no one cares if they are crying. Babies cry bc that is how they communicate their needs and ignoring crys is ignoring a baby's needs. Have you tried a pacifier? Babies suck in order to help calm them so your little ones might feel unsure and out of sorts since the move and need to suck for comfort
