Do twins need two cribs?
We will always defer to your twins’ pediatrician when deciding if your twins can share a crib. Sometimes that is just necessary due to space. If that is the case and the doctor okays it, we recommend that you put your twins to sleep with their heads close together and their feet away from one another.
Twin parents often put their babies in separate cribs when they begin to roll over so they do not interrupt each others’ sleep.
Should twins share a nursery?
Whether or not your twins share a nursery is entirely up to you. Some families prefer their babies have their own space while other cherish the convenience of having them in the same place at night for midnight feedings.
How do you set up a nursery for twins?
- Plan ahead
- Decide on furniture first
- Accessorize the room
- Make a comfortable space for feeding and rocking
- Organize small items like clothing and shoes
When should you start doing the nursery?
It is best to plan ahead when you can. When you are pregnant with twins, the last thing you should be doing is putting the crib and glider together in your 8th month. Try to get these things finished as you head into your 3rd trimester.
