What is the safest way to sleep twins?
Research has shown that the safest way to sleep twins in the home is in their own safe sleeping container (cot,portable cot, bassinette or cradle) in the parents’ room for the first 6-12 months. Sometimes twin babies are in temporary situations, such as while visiting or travelling, when separate cots are not possible. If the twins are sharing the same cot, do not use bedding and place them at opposite ends of the cot. An infant sleeping bag used for each baby may be useful in this situation. When the babies have reached the age where they can move freely around the cot, place them in separate cots.
