Crying it Out - A Parent's Edition

By Let Mommy Sleep. November 14, 2012

One of the questions every parent of multiples gets asked is: “What do you do when the babies cry at the same time?” Below is a real answer from Denise Stern, whose newborn twins arrived when her baby boy was just 17 months old:

I will never forget when my sweet-natured 22 month- old son had night terrors and my twin infants were 4 months old; still teeny girls getting up overnight to eat. One night after soothing my son back to sleep, he got out of his toddler bed and inadvertently locked himself in his room. When he realized what had happened, he started screaming with fright. Naturally, this was the exact moment the twins loudly awakened for their 1am feeding.
