I have twin boys who are 9 months and they dont sleep in their cribs.
we've got into this bad habit and we need to break it. right now they fall asleep and go to their crib (i know they need to fall asleep IN their cribbut i dont know how to help them learn that) then when they wake up in the night my mom has one boy in her bed in her room and i have one in my bed which is in the twins room.
i need some help, because I dont know how to start to ween them off this bad habit.
my mom suggested starting a routine with them at night so i'm going to start, with a bath, then books then, im lost
should i just put them in their cribs right away like, cold turkey? or should i just work on getting them to stay in their crib al night.
omg help me I'm lost haha.
Babies sleeping with their mothers is not a "bad habit". Babies have always slept with their mothers. For it to be safe babies should be breastfed and sleep with their mothers, not grandmothers. This is because breastfed mothers have a symbiotic biological relationship with their babies. They share sleep cycles.
If you are breastfeeding there is no reason you can't sleep with both your babies. In most of the world mothers still sleep with their babies. Babies have a need (not habit) to sleep with their mother. It's not their fault if they aren't breastfed or that they live in the US and are expected to sleep in cribs. You could start with their crib next to your bed.
