My twins obviously need a nap every afternoon. The problem is that they wake up too easily. I nurse them together until they fall asleep and when I move to lay them down they wake up. If it was only one I could easily nurse them back to sleep and then lay them down, but I can't figure out what to do with two. Nursing them separately won't work because whichever one wasn't nursing would be screaming and it can take anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes before they fall asleep. I've tried nursing them in our bed and sliding them off me, but they still wake up. I would nap with them if it weren't for having an older child too. My oldest son could have slept through an explosion and I just can't figure out how to help these light sleepers.
