  • I'd say try new things. Try and see what happens if you don't go right to them when they start crying. Give it a min or two and they might go right back to sleep. I had to "break" my son of waking up in the middle of the night to play. Because I wasn't getting ANY sleep. So when he would wake up I'd listen to his cries, make sure they weren't "OMG i hurt" cries and just lay in bed listening. After a min or two he would stop crying and put himself back to sleep. I wouldn't say let them scream for several min. but try and listen to their cries and you'll know if they really NEED you to come in their room or not.

  • My son is 10 months and a few weeks ago he stopped sleeping 10 straight hours. I change him, feed him and back to bed in 10 to 15 minutes. Hoping it is a growth spurt or something....I feel for you. With twins, oh my.
    Have you thought of weening the pacifiers out? Or a friend of mine put numerous pacifiers in the crib so the baby was bound to find one to grab in the middle of the night.
