I recently shared what a 24 hour period is like for us right now with 4 week old twins. What I didn't get into is how Mr. H and I are choosing to divide up baby duties overnight.
The first few nights at home with the twins were rough. The babies were up non-stop, Mr. H and I were exhausted, and we alternated between stumbling around in exhaustion to bickering with one another in frustration. It wasn't good! Finally, we hatched a plan that would help us each get a long stretch of sleep.
Around 6/6:30pm we start getting all of the kids ready for bed. We've found it's easiest to divide and conquer: one of us will focus on getting Miss H ready for bed (potty, teeth, tub, pajamas, stories, bed) while the other will focus on the twins (pajamas, bottles, swaddles, and into rock-n-plays).
After prepping a pitcher of formula and filling some bottles for overnight, along with any other kitchen clean up that's needed, I get ready for bed. My goal is to be in bed and asleep by 8pm. From that point, this is what we do (this is an example schedule if things are perfect):
