You may not be able to completely synchronize their schedules since their needs may be slightly different, but you can bring them closer together with gentle adjustments. Even with two babies the exact same age they won't necessarily have the exact same sleeping and feeding requirements. It will help a lot if you look at their natural schedules and use that as a starting place. If one baby usually naps for 2 hours and the other usually naps for 2 1/2 hours, then you will have to work with that - you can either coordinate their beginning nap times or their ending nap times, but probably not both. You can begin to establish a schedule that takes into account both babies needs, but perfect synchronization may not happen. just be consistent and you will be laying a good foundation. In time it will get easier.

Start by trying to get them to nap at the same time at least for one nap each day. You can plan ahead. If one baby is very predictable then you can guess when he/she will be ready for a nap. Do what you can to adjust the other one to be ready for nap near the same time. Even if their naps are perfectly synchronized you will get a break if their naps at least overlap.
