My twin girls shared a bassinet, next to our bed until they were five months old. Then they shared a crib in their own room for a couple more months. One little baby in a big crib just seemed… lonely. They have never slept with their heads more than five feet apart. I have never even considered separating them. There were many times over the years when one had an accident, or needed some Tylenol and I would turn the lights on, change the sheets, pour the medicine, get a glass of water all while the other slept without even stirring. It’s rare that one will sleep in longer than the other. They usually come into my room in the morning one right after the other.
