How Do Twins Sleep?

The answer is, of course, like babies. But that’s not what I’m after.

P.Pie and I have been having ‘discussions’ about whether or not to put the twins in the same crib.

P.Pie’s position is that they should definitely be in the same crib. They spent nine months (in theory), 24/7, with each other, so they should be able to co-self sooth and thus, sleep better.

In my mind, they spent nine months together. If I spent 24/7 with my sister, Tintin, I’d want to strangle her. Why should my children be any different?

I’m not saying they won’t want to sleep together, but they may have different sleeping patterns. One may be a kicker (professional punter?), the other may be a flailer (pro baseball player?).

Whatever the case maybe, I think we need two cribs from the get-go. I would hate to need a second crib and not have it.

But enough out of me; I want to hear from parents of twins and their experiences.

Did your twins sleep together?

Did you try separating them and it didn’t work?

How was it?


Before you give me your thoughts, there are a few provisos, a couple of quid pro quos –

I’m not looking for Never mind, I want all opinions.

So that’s it; let me know what you think.
