The No Cry Sleep Solution
has been REALLY helpful for us. I nurse the babies one at a time and then walk them until their drowsy, then lay them down and they sleep. While I am doing one, Dad is often bouncing one to sleep in front of the computer or he is in the swing.
It is now that we have a sort of routine, it really helps cut down on how long it takes them to go to sleep. From an hour of pacing to about 5-10 minutes. MUCH better.
Having them nap at slightly different times is good too (for now). THat way I only have one needing to be nursed down/walked down at a time. I hope to change that in a couple months, but it works well now. I can do anything with one baby in a sling, but 2 take all of my strength time and attention.
Nursing them at the same time in bed: I stack one on top of the other!! Seriously, I lay them side by side, then pull the front babies head up onto the back babies tummy. Then I lift up on an elbow and nurse them together
. Not comfortable, but very efficient and quick. They can even fall asleep with the other babie still wiggling and nursing
Or I lay sligtly on my side and nurse one laying on top of me, and one lying beside me. But this one is very hard to do if either one is wiggly!! Luckily they usually only nurse a couple times a night.
