Yeah, so they slept (basically) through the night again (though I should clarify that “through the night” only means that they woke at appropriate times for feedings and went right back to sleep, rather than fussing on and off, etc.). It’s becoming really clear that they (and we) sleep so much better all lumped together in the same bed. However, I do have to admit that I’m still working out the logistics of it, and that at times, I am worried about them, even though we keep the soft bedding away from them and the pillows out of their way, etc. (Bad mom admits it here, but) they have NEVER slept on their back. I put them down on their back, and check on them to find them on their side. I have never actually seen them roll, so I’m not sure how they do it (maybe they just get angry enough to spaz themselves into whatever the preferred position is…), but unless they are tightly swaddled and in a bouncy seat, OR they are in bed with us, they very rarely lay flat on their back. Not sure what to do about that.
Anyway, the co-sleeper thing arrived today. I’m not sure how it’s going to work with twins but we’re going to try it out and see. If it doesn’t work, we’ll just return it, I guess.
Ah. And now, it’s bath time/feed time/sleep time for the boys…
I’ll leave you with two pictures from our first shopping outing today:
