here's just a couple of thoughts: how old are they?

--are you swaddling them? a good tight swaddle usualy knocked both my guys out when they were little & they'd sleep, & then i could sleep which was so needed!!

--can you let them fall asleep in their car seats & then transfer them to their crib(s) or bassinets once they're sleeping?

--will they sleep on the floor on a clean flat blanket in a safe spot? if it's clean & safe & they are not rolling over yet, that might be an option?

--are they gassy? do they seem to have sour stomachs? if they do, being flat on their backs will be bothersome to most babies, have you tried gripe water? & lots of burping during & after feedings?

--what about another aparatus that's not as confining as a carseat, but similar like a swing, or bouncy chair, or even a highchair that tilts back & has a seat belt for safety?

i didn't sleep in my bed until my twins were almost 3 months old

remember: this too shall pass! :) they won't sleep in their car seats forever, i promise!
