Q: I have a set of twins that are 11 months. They still share a crib and will not sleep at night. One is a boy and one is a girl. How can I get them to sleep at night?

A: As a first step, it’s likely time to separate them and have them sleep in separate cribs.  Not only will it likely help them sleep better at night, but there are safety concerns with two of them in a crib, especially as they start being able to climb.  In addition, be sure to establish healthy sleep habits, including a set bedtime, a consistent bedtime routine, and having them fall asleep on their own.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
