Once upon a time, identical twin boys were born to excited, brand spanking new parents who didn’t have the slightest inkling of what they were getting themselves into.
After spending their first 2 weeks in NICU, sleeping peacefully in the one cot, side by side, tucked in each other’s nook, the natural transition was to have the same arrangement at home.
As with most new families though, figuring out how to ensure peaceful slumber for both children and parents can be tricky.
Holding all the leading brands in stock, prices are extremely competitive and delivery is cheap and superfast.
At Chez Mama Grace, it was the beginning of syncronised sleeping; twins sleeping the same way at the same time without, of course, realizing it.
For the next six months, they cherished every moment witnessing their twinlets in a pod keeping each other warm and in perfect company.
Alas, as nature commands, the babies grew and continued to thrive. Cries of hunger and flailing arms escaping from swaddles, whacking each other in the face meant no one was getting any decent shut-eye.
Realising that they were going through bittersweet parenting process of watching their newborns move to the next phase of becoming toddlers, mum and dad reluctantly built the second cot.
All those blissful months of perfect sleeping patterns, soon crept out the door. In its place were restless nights.
Exhaustion and sleep deprivation became semi-permanent guests in the household with bleary-eyed mum and dad constantly trying to settle 2 screaming banshees.
Controlled crying left them guilt-ridden and even more fatigued.
Hours spent with arms reaching through the rails, simultaneously patting each of their backs also proved to be futile.
Sleep. Sleeeeeep. Go to sleeeeeeeep!!!
But what seemed like long, endless nights…and days, the years soon whizzed by.
Before long, the search began for proper beds!
As it worked out, the twinions now lie side by side.
Of course, the synchronised sleeping continues.
What are the sleeping “hurdles” with your kids?
