Getting Them on a Schedule
In general, you should strive to feed, change, entertain, and put the babies to sleep together. Sleep training will not be easy at first, but it will be worth it in the long run. You may, at times, have to wake a sleeping baby. Nonetheless, parents must realize the unique demands of each child, who will not always be hungry, tired, alert, and playful at the same time. Even when they are twins, they are still distinct individuals with separate needs. Here are some useful tips to get them on a schedule.
- Feed twins and multiples approximately at the same time. If one awakens to feed, the other should also awaken.
- Be adaptable; revise and adjust as circumstances change.
- Keep in mind that your children are unique people; you cannot compel them to follow the same routine. Do the very best you can.
- Learn how to decipher your baby’s clues and screams in order to determine his or her needs.
