How to choose the best cribs for twins
Are you or a loved one welcoming twins? Congratulations, and how exciting! Naturally, two bundles of joy translate to making different sleeping accommodations. So I’m here to help with, the how, involved in choosing the best cribs for twins.
Conflicting information spans the internet, regarding the safety of allowing twins to sleep in the same bed. Like all parenting topics, everyone has their own opinions.
So what are the approved sleeping conditions for twins? The American Academy of Pediatrics, (AAP) recommends that babies should sleep on solid, individual surfaces, such as cribs and bassinets.
Never lay babies to sleep on couches, chairs, or beds with large pillows and cushions. These are falling and/or suffocation hazards.
Furthermore, babies should always go to sleep on their backs. Because babies that sleep on their stomachs are at an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Parents should keep newborns in the same room during their initial stages of development. Experts advise for at least six months. However, co-sleeping or crib-sharing is a discouraged practice.
Despite these advisements, parents choose to allow their twins to share cribs and bassinets. In these instances, it’s suggested that babies are to be separated when they begin to wiggle around. With no expectations.
Consider both the pros and cons of co-sleeping. Ultimately, only you know what is best for you and your babies. And if you have concerns, ask your pediatrician. Or follow the AAP’s recommendations, (they exist for a reason).
To conclude, I hope that you have made the right choice when it comes to a crib for your twins, within your budget, needs, and preferences. After reading this guide it won ao be really hard to get the best option in the market, however, some parents also shop for second-hand models. While it is a viable choice, it is not worth it, since you in know where the crib has been stored and if it is clean enough.
Twins are like the lottery of children and if you are lucky enough to be expecting one, I know that you are giving all your thought to their well being, so take care and until the next time.
