One or Two Cribs?

Postby 1sttimemommy » Tue Dec 02, 2014 10:09 am

Do you ladies plan on separating your twins during sleep time? BF wants them to automatically sleep separately. I think they would be better sleeping together for a couple months. We are buying two cribs, but shouldnt they share one for a while? I also plan on using a co-sleeper and they would both be in that together.

I used the co sleeper in the beginning for both. Even in the hospital the nurses would snuggle them into one cubbie. Around 3 months I put them down in the individual cribs occasionally.

We have a big co-sleeper that they will both fit into. We normally bedshare until at least 2 years old, so I will figure it out after that. I guess by then, they can choose to share a bed or have their own :)

We had a crib in bedroom and kept babies together in that for 2 months. At months we separated them because our girl would spin around in the bed.
