Did you or do you cosleep with your twins? - Page 2

As far as positions, it's like a well choreographed dance. We move around all night (even vertical to horizontal). It varies by what the twins needs and who is up and needs to be nursed, snuggled, etc. It works well for us.

We had two queens pushed next to each other and one crib in the room as well. We kept the other one downstairs for naps (they also slept in their bouncy seats alot for naps). We would start out in the cribs and then bring them into bed with us for the first nursing. If I fell asleep (I usually did..lol) they would stay with us for the night. Now they start out in the crib and sleep most of the night in their own cribs (in the same room with us) but come in with us (or just hubby if I've gone in to sleep with DD) when they want to.

We started out with the boys sharing 1 crib but they hated it, so we quickly transitioned to all 4 of us squished on a queen sized bed. When they were about 6 months old we moved to a new house and transitioned to a queen sized bed and 2 crib mattresses pushed together on the floor. When they were about 1.5 we moved to our current house which has a bedroom that is actually big enough for a queen bed and full bed pushed together. That is our current sleeping arrangement.

Yep, we still co-sleep at 18 months and started about a week or two after they came home from the NICU. It so snuggly, plus its the only way to get any sleep! Imagine getting out of bed to nurse all night long...no thank you! We use a King.

We co-sleep in our kingsize bed and my boys are 20 months. They start the night out in their own cribs and then I take them into bed with us as and when they wake up.

Our girls start the night in their room, but 99% of nights both of them eventually work their way into ours. We have a queen size bed and it's getting pretty uncomfortable. Only for me, of course, because while they love DaddyDaddyDaddy all day, at night, all my (non-nursing, so that's not the excuse!) girls want is MommyMommyMommy. I want a King bed but I am not sure I'd actually get any more room to sleep.

A king size doesn't really matter when all they want to do is snuggle close and I'm stuck in one position

Noooo, don't say it! That is my big fear. They really just want to be with Mommy - Daddy is so extraneous when it comes to sleeping. But I can't bear to kick him out.

I didn't answer the position question. We can't have the bed against the wall in our house, so it usually goes like this:

bedrail - lilly - mommy - kate - daddy

Occasionally the girls trade places, but very rarely. Kate will at least occasionally snuggle with Daddy, so I like to give her access.

We're still cosleeping with our five-year-old twins, and their one-year-old little brother. We outgrew our king-size mattress when the baby arrived. We now have a full and a queen smushed together on the floor and it is fabulous. I can't imagine not cosleeping with twins, at least for the first year. Think of how many times you'd have to get up out of bed! :
