My twin boys are almost 3 months and are always hungry. However, sometimes they eat 2 ozs and sometimes 5 ozs. They fall asleep and won't finish the bottle, but are up in another 1.5 hrs to eat again! I'm going crazy. They still spit up quite a bit, but they do not sleep in thier crib and will only sleep in thier bouncers or swings. My DH and I have not slept in the same bed for almost 2 months now and I don't know what to do! I was thinking that some rice cereal would help, but now I'm not so sure. Any advice would be appreciated. And how can I get them to sleep in thier crib? My DH works a crazy schedule, so sometimes it's just me at night along w/ my almost 7 yr old autistic son. I need to get sleep or I will have panic attacks. Literally!

LuvsDanika is right! Holy bad information!!!
Your children are going through a growth spurt right now so everything is going to be a bit off for a week or so. This is normal and you do not want to replace their much needed nutrition with fillers (rice cereal). This is normal growth spurt time and they NEED more food (breastmilk/formula) more often for a bit. Rice cereal is actually shown to cause sleeplessness NOT a restful night sleep (old wives tale).
