How to Handle Two Crying Babies at the Same Time

Megann Sauer, M.D.​

Handling two crying babies at a time can be quite a challenge if you're the parent of a multiple.

The best thing to do first is to try to remain calm and then figure out what is wrong with the baby.

Does the baby need a new diaper? Is the child hungry? Does the baby actually just need to go to sleep and is just really tired?​

After you've determined and tried to problem solve what's wrong with the baby, if the baby is still fussy, sometimes it's ok for babies to just fuss.

The most important thing as a parent of a multiple is to remember that you can't do it all and to start with one child at a time, figure out what's wrong with one and then move on to the next. ​

​Having twins is a joyful time but what should parents do if their babies are crying at the same time? Dr. Megann Sauer, pediatrician at Boys Town Pediatrics, offers some advice for this potential stressful situation.​​
