Our babies don't want to sleep in the crib ever! Normal to cry 3 .5 hours at night and still not go to sleep. I need to know

1. How many and long should naps be

2. How often and how much does your baby eat (bottles)

3. When is bed time

My babies want to snack on 4 ounce bottles

sleep all day and stay up all night

cry as soon as they see the crib

I work eve shift 4 days a week my husband is home alone with the twins a two year old. Its to much for one person! We need the twins to go to sleep in the crib.

They naturally want to go to bed between 10pm and 10:30pm. I wanted them to go to sleep between 7-8 but they don't want to. If they would sleep in until 10am Id be so happy. I feel better knowing that it's not just my babies that cry at bedtime. They both went to bed at 10:30pm. I would be happy to do 1 feeding at night, I don't want to get up 4 times a night.

I don't know how it "should" be but this is how it works for Ty.

Goes to bed around 9:00pm.
