Crib Location, Twins

I’m having twins, and I’m not sure if it’s better to have them sleep in the same room, or separate. What did you do?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: My twins slept in the same cradle in the same room for awhile. Then we moved them into the same crib. After that, they slept in different cribs, but still in the same room.

This worked out great. Surprisingly, they didn’t keep each other awake. One twin didn’t seem to care a bit if the other twin was crying. When they did wake up, they stood in their cribs and threw their stuffed animals at each other until the animals all wound up in the pile in the middle of the room.
