I have 5 week old twins, i want them to sleep in their crib. when i first brought them home they slept in the crib, but when it was time to feed them i'd bring them in bed with me and then we'd end up falling asleep and they'd sleep until morning/next feeding..well i have begun just letting them in my bed and now with the one twin he will not sleep in his crib without a fight, my other twin will go down in it with less problem..they are only 5 weeks old, so obvously no CIO,and i know that they need me right now for so much comfort which is why i have let them in my bed rather than fight them to be in their crib.so my ? is i want them in their now beforeit becomes a habit to be in my bed at night..how would i do this without haviing the screaming..and i meanas soon as he's put in the crib he screams and once i pick him up he's fine.Answer Question

I have that issue too with my 4 month old. I put him to bed in his crib, but when he wakes for his 4 am feeding I end up letting him stay. I have to just discipline myself to get up and put him back when he falls back asleep. The times I do it, he stays asleep in his bed. I just have to make it a nightly habit.

have you tried swaddling them before you put them in there crib? My 2 moth old sleeps better if she is swaddled.
