Any suggestions or tips on how to get the babies to sleep all night long? They wake up at least once or twice still.

One is wide awake and it's almost 2am.

DO NOT SUGGEST CRY IT OUT.

How old are they?

Really the only thing that I know of that works is patience, lol. They'll sleep through the night when they're ready for it. Mine have always slept better in my bed...

This is not a popular opinion around here but it worked for me for 35 years. I always had the baby sleep on my chest

Twins? How old are they?

My suggestion is co sleep or rock them, whatever works best for them.

Yes. 13 months. And no co sleeping won't work, we've tried it. Tried rocking them as well. Nothing

They just turned one, right? Its normal for them to still wake up in the night, but as far as getting them to sleep, turn off electronics and things like that prior to bedtime so they won't be as stimulated. Maybe some white noise and rock them to sleep.

Graduated extinction and consistently enforce bed time.

We've tried. My husband will take one up to our room in the pitch black no noise or anything get her to sleep around 730 but by 10 or 11 they are awake again. They've always gone to bed at 7 or 730pm.
