Don’t be in a hurry
Go step by step; don’t be in a hurry. Teaching your babies something is not something you will get results quickly. They need time to get used to this routine in order to learn their new routine. Make your plan your schedule first, and then put your plan into action when you think they’re most ready. It is generally not reasonable to embark on a new path with babies who have gas, are sick, have teeth, or are in the attack phase.
Supply your needs
You want to establish a sleep routine for your babies and you have a plan. If you need some materials to implement this plan, first procure what you need and then start practicing the routine. For example, if going into their room to check if they’re undressing wakes them up, it might work to buy a sleeping bag depending on the temperature of your home.
Feed at the same time
Babies fed at the same time fall asleep at similar times. Feed your babies at the same time, burp them, play with them. When the sleep time you set approaches, calm down, reduce the ambient lights, start talking in a calm tone and put them both to bed at the same time.
Be consistent and stubborn
You put them in their beds, but someone is not sleeping. Calm down, he will sleep. If you have planned the sleeping hours appropriately for your babies, if you know that your baby is sleepy, do not take him out of the bed, if he is crying, calm him down, but put him to bed again. Don’t be in a hurry to wake up your brother, they will get used to each other’s voices in a very short time.
Deposit at the same time
Sleep at the same time during daytime naps and nighttime naps; It is very important that your babies’ routines are shared. Because their needs are very similar. They need similar sleep times, so they should go to bed at the same time both day and night.
If one wakes up, wake the other.
If a baby wakes up during a daytime nap, wake up the twin as well and schedule the next nap time according to the time they wake up. Make sure there are no more than 15 minutes between their awakenings.
Create a sleep routine
Make sure you have a certain time to go to bed every night and complete your routines just before that time comes. A short and warm bath before sleep, a few minutes of massage and a fairy tale you read with your calmest voice can teach your babies that it is time to sleep, even if you think they do not understand. Stick to your routines, babies don’t like to be surprised.
Instead of being sleepless for years, it is up to you to make an effort for a while – sometimes a few days, sometimes a few months – and lead an easier life with sleeping babies. If you are patient, both your babies and you will wake up happier.
