Mine were born at 37 weeks too :) i dont always adjust their weeks in my mind but if you're reading about wonder weeks etc then you do have to adjust.
I dont try to synchronise mine at all, when they're older and can entertain eachother i'll work on that. I find the beat is when they're about half an hour aparr in their 'routine' but that constantly changes throughout the day ::)

What would a typical day look like for you? As in naps and milk? My twins are 3 1/2 months now so I know it's still early days but I'm such a routine person it's stressing me out not knowing what's going on each day x

Who wants a monotonous routine?! (Me!! :P) we're all for spontaneity here sadly :( no day is like the other, i wish i could say they do a good nap at x time of day etc but i just never know. They wake up when they wake up, sometimes at the same time, sometimes 20mim apart sometimes an hour. And basically from there they feed every 3 hours unless we get a mammoth nap or a very short nap. I've started to really insist on the catnap as otherwise bedtime is awful for dd especially. The only predictable thing is i bath around 6-6:30 and then bedtime which can be as smoth as 7 or drawn out to 8+...
I wish we had sthg more structured but im learning to just go with the flow and not expect to be able to do anything but babies so that anything extra is a happy bonus :) i truly hope that things will get a tad more predictable ina month or 2, whatndo seasoned twin mama say to that? Shall i stop dreaming? :)

Now on one nap we have a little more predictability but not necessarily consistency!

In a word...yes!  We did find two solid naps not too bad which we went to at about 5mths.  One nap by 10mths...

Hang in there.

Hi ladies, how are all the twins?

I miss our chats.....

We are teething and have colds. As usual. But we are also walking and starting to talk so it's all fun. C stood up in her cot, held up her arms and said "mama" the other day, they say "plssssss" and "ta" and can roar like a lion.

Anyone else still here? Kayra? Laura? Nicky? Beth?

Xxx

Lily how exciting!
Mine are nearly walking (they're one next week!!) They also like to "bundle" each other and play rough and tumble...

They make lots of similar noises and do things in sync which always makes me chuckle.  Not many words but boy they don't stop babbling!

Love hearing about all these fun developments :)
We're doing ok, we don't have a predictable routine but def. less of the awful 45min naps thankfully!
Dd has really blossomed talking more, giving gorgeous smiles the moment you make eye contact and after 3 months of awful settling, she self settles beautifully-provided you catch the right a time ;)
My theoretic plan is that when I start solids and they're at a longer a time (like 2hrs) I'd like them to be more in sync, is that achievable? Did you manage to get your twins in sync-ish?

I think that's achievable. 6mths and two naps definitely. Esp if you did set naps.

I'm a massive fan of set naps. Really turned things round for us. Wish we'd done it sooner! Having said that I think they are nearly down to 1 nap now (finally)!!! And things are a bit up in the air because of it. I think, esp with twins, it's really good way to get them in sync. To start with I was doing a lot of waking from naps of one or the other but it was worth it!!!
