1. Try your best to relax. Fro some reason babies pick up on our frustrations. It's easier to soothe them if you're not stressed. If you need to, ask someone you trust to help you while you step away and compose yourself

2. If you've ruled out hunger and dirty diapers maybe they're hot or cold or maybe they're extra gassy babies. There's a video on babycenter.com that shows different ways of burping a baby. One being holding the baby with her laying on your forearm which helps by slightly compressing the belly and guiding the gas up.

3. If you've checked for anything that could be causing your babies physical discomfort or illness it's ok. They're babies. Crying is what they do. If possible try white noise like the sound of a vacuum cleaner or hair dryer. It's soothes the babies because it's similar to what they heard while in your belly.


I hope this helps...good luck and remember to keep calm

When my twins were that young, the only way they would stop was when either DH or my brother held them. I think its because they rested them ontheir leg and their legs would shake. Not sure if this helps, but it workedfor my two

Oh gosh they are adorable! How old are they? When are they crying? Might be colic?

Babies cry as their only form of communication at that age. So they could be hungry, cold or hot, tired, gassy, need a diaper change, are overstimulated, want to be held, etc. Even if all their needs are met, babies can still cry, it's just what babies do. If you know all their other needs are met, trying swaddling them, rocking them in your arms, or put them in a baby swing. Good luck, it must be twice as hard with two babies crying!

Do you happen to babywear?? This could probably really help you out with twins. You will probably only be able to wear one at a time at this age, but it could give you some extra hands for the other one and then switch them out. Babywearing is really calming for babies. For this age a wrap would work well, like a moby wrap. There are tutorials on youtube for how to make your own (which is cheaper) and how to tie them.

Your babies are absolutely adorable!!! I always wanted a set of twins and was very disappointed that I never got them.... Congratulations. I used to work in a day care center and Inoticed that when I would have to sooth a baby when they were crying was to sing and rock them or walk around with them while i sang mostly when i sang the Old Mc Donald's Farm song. I think they like the different sounds that you make from the animals. I would also make up songs that had their names in it something totally random and it always seemed to help. it would also relax me and keep me from getting so tense because they wouldn't stop crying. Good Luck and enjoy your babies!!
