getting twins to sleep

How do/did you get your babies to sleep when you were alone?
My dh travels a lot and I have not yet figured out how to do bedtime with the babies alone.
My older dd ends up having to go to bed late and I can live with that.
But I nurse or rock the babes to sleep when dh is here and when he isn't I just end up having to put one of them in his/her crib to cry while I get the first one to sleep and I hate it.
Any ideas?

This is our routine -

Nurse - nurse
bath - pajamas
bath - pajamas
pacifier for one, nurse the other to sleep
nurse the other to sleep

I nursed them both at the same time while sitting on the floor, then laid them both on the floor, picked up the one and laid him in bed, then went back to get his brother and laid him in bed. Told them both night night and left the room.

However, my boys were always great at getting themselves to sleep, so I know I was lucky that the above routine worked.

Think this will help you

Follow a schedule
Practice co-bedding
Keep them in the same room & train them to get sleep on their own
Take your baby out to enjoy fresh air
Develop cues for your baby to insinuate sleep
Study each of your twin’s sleep habits
Sleep when the babies sleep
Make the process efficient
Create bedtime rituals
Get information and help

The normal new born baby sleep more in the day time compare to night time. It is not easy to sleep the baby in the home during the alone time. But it is an amazing feelings for maintain the small baby.
