I have twins that are 14 weeks old (were born at 37 weeks) and when they were about a week old I started a bad habit. I have a huge twin nursing pillow and they happily fall asleep nursing (exclusively breastfeed...usually tandem). Whenever I would try to move them to a PNP or crib they would scream and we would have to nurse again to get them calmed down and back to sleep. Well after a few sleepless nights I caved and went downstairs to the couch where it's easier to tandem nurse. Once they fell asleep I would lean back and I got sleep!! It sucks sleeping sitting up but we all sleep so well. I co-slept with my son and this was pretty similar and we all were much happier the next day. Fast forward 3 months and my back is killing me and these sweet babies can't fall asleep without cuddling up. Usually it takes nursing but just walking and bouncing or the swing works during the day. I NEED to get them in their cribs and I've decided it's going to start this Saturday. I'm having spasms in my back and need to do it. SO many people tell me to let them cry and that is just not me. The more I read the more I relate to Dr. Sears and AP. SO I'm hoping you guys can help me. We're all so used to them falling right to sleep on me we don't know where to start. They scream if we lay them down to try and get them to go to sleep awake but wake up within 30 minutes (we got 45 min one time!!) if we put them down asleep. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! Sorry for the book
