I would work on them individually, in separate bedrooms, starting with night time sleep. But I would not let them cry it out. I am vehemently opposed to doing that. Have you ever actually tried to stand by and do nothing while your child cries? If you can actually do that, more power to you because it was not something I was able to do.
Are my boys the best sleepers? No. It took nearly 2 years before they were mostly sleeping through the night. But I am proud that I never resorted to crying it out and we maintained the loving and trusting bond that we have.
Everyone does what works for them. But crying it out would never have worked for me.
I would ask: how are you doing naps now? I noticed you asked about naps and night time sleep twice. are naps a problem? I believe that the babies will wake each other up and therefore mine have been separated from 6 weeks onward. Start there.
Daytime sleep takes longer to develop (in my opinion) so as long as they are eating enough during the day, you might find it easier to begin with night time sleep.
