Our twins are 4 months old.
My husband and I have no family and moved during my pregnancy, so we have no friends either.
I knew I couldn't go back to work after they were born because we have no help at all. I enjoy taking care of them, but I'm so exhausted.
I've spent every day with them since birth. (Also carried them for 9 months! lol)
They wake up every 3 hours at night and only take 30 minute naps during the day.
For their daytime feedings I put them in their bouncers and feed them at the same time, but they wake up at different times during the night so I feed them separately and can't get any sleep. I only have my husband help if he has the next day off.
When they take their naps I'm busy with housework, then they wake up and I change diapers, play and feed.
I'm trying to sleep train them, but CIO isn't working.
I give them a bath, feed and put them in their crib while they're drowsy. If I'm lucky they sleep for a half an hour, but then all hell breaks loose. One will eventually stop crying, but the other gets hysterical and hyperventilates. The only way they'll sleep is if I wait for them to wake up after 30 minutes and then feed them another ounce. Or hold them, which I really don't want to do because they need to learn...
I guess my question is how do I get them to take longer naps during the day and sleep through the night?
I love them so much and love spending time with them but this exhaustion and stress is killing me!
