Moms of twins - what was the longest you have let your baby CIO in one stretch? Any other method worked during sleep training?

We are trying CIO as a last resort for our twins and it seems to be working. Tried the gentler version for a couple of days to give them a break, one of the twins went back to square one. He is the more social one. Wish I could hold them all the time, as it is very heart breaking to hear them cry, but we don't have enough manpower to do so. Did you have a scenario where one of the twins needed more attention than the other and how did you juggle sleep training then? What was the longest you went CIO in one go?

Also, my boys nap on their swings. They are 4 month old and seem to wake up within the first 30-40 min and then I coax them back to sleep when they sleep for longer spell. Any suggestion on how I could make them nap longer? We haven't tried CIO during daily naps. Have you tried that? Do you think I should let them nap in their cribs? I have tried that, but they end up not sleeping at all.

20 minutes. But your babies are too young for CIO. They're only four months old they need to be held and comforted and responded to. right now I wouldn't change what works to get them to nap as your probably need your sleep.
