There are several tips that you can use in order to effectively put your twins to sleep.

Schedule
The first tip is to make sure that you get them on a schedule. This is something that it is going to be important even if you only have one baby and more especially if you have two babies. You are going to need some peace and quiet after a full day of being a mom and dad to twins. Therefore, you want to make sure that both of the babies are going to sleep at the same time every night.

Routine
The second tip is to create some type of routine for bedtime. All babies are going to thrive when you have a consistent bedtime for them. Therefore, you are going to need to come up with a bedtime routine that is going to work best for everyone. For most little ones, you can give them a bath, read them a book and then put them to bed in order to be the most effective. This is a great time for you to bond with your twins so you want to make it enjoyable for the twins and free of stress.

Co-bedding
The third tip is to think about co-bedding. This is when you are going to be laying the twins next to other in the crib together. It is important to remember that the twins spent a lot of time together inside of the womb, so it is probably going to be soothing to have their twin next to them when they are trying to sleep. But you probably only want to do this until your babies are three months. This is because at three months, they are going to start to move around and they might wake it each other up.

Same Room

The fourth tip is to to keep the twins in the same room. Once you are no longer letting the twins sleep in the same crib, then you want to make sure that they are going to be in the same room with each other. This is so that they will be able to see each other before they fall asleep. This is something that it is going to be soothing and will help them to calm down when they might be a little bit fuzzy at their bedtime.

Drowsy
The fifth tip is to put them down in their crib when they are drowsy, but they are still awake. It can be harmless to feed the baby or rock the baby until they fall asleep, but if it is something that the babies get used to, then it is something that they are going to be looking for each time that they might wake up even if it is in the middle of the night. It is important to remember that with twins they are probably going to get up a lot during the night. It is best to teach the twins how to fall asleep on their own.
