I have twin 5 month old girls. Usually they are very easy to put down for naps, my husband works from home so we both take a baby in their room and rock/sing until we see sleepy eyes or until they rub their faces on our shoulders, then we put them down. They may talk/fuss for a minute or two but that's it. For the past few days one of the girls has been really freaking out when we put her down, a minute or two after we shut the door. She also has been waking up more at...
My girls were born the day before yours! 6-23. Just found this forum and I am so glad I did (how have I done without it for the last 5 months??)

I have no advice for you but I feel your pain! My girls are 5 1/2 months old and are STILL not on the same schedule. Every now and then we have a day where they take two 1 1/2 hour naps at the same time (sometimes 2 hours!!) and it is blissfull and glorious. I have to remind myself that it's okay to be frustrated at the situation, but not at the babies. They are two different people, so of course they aren't going to be exactly the same. I know how hard and complicated...
