Hi there! premenrs asked me to post this on the board for you all! Here's the message she sent with the picture:

These are the first babies we co-bedded. Their mom and dad are very proud of them and brought this picture in to show us how they STILL co-bed. Apparently, this is their favorite position!

No problem premenrs!

Actually, this is how my hubby usually ends up sleeping all the time, only it's not nearly as cute!

I had a triplet mom tell me the other day when she brought the second baby home, she put them in the same crib and they immediately curled up together! She forgot to take a picture.

How sad, our unit doesn't allow co-bedding. Seems like great fun. Good for the babies too, I imagine. The closest we get is beds side-by-side so the parents can hold at the same time.

I've got a great picture in my retirement scrapebook of 3 little butts lined up--A and B were marked on the diapers, but C was blank. Maybe I can get someone to scan it in for me.

Thus far the worst we've had for sharing germs has been conjunctivitis. We separated, put them both on eye ointment, and re-co-bedded after about a week.

I think my unit is against it because of the sharing germs thing. Then again, we allow parents to hold both babies at the same time and wouldn't that share just as many germs?

I sometimes but babies together when I changing one twin's bedding, but that's the closest I get.

Thats so true, as soon a I brought my twins home they always moved their tiny heads together. They were so cute! Well they still are. Too bad they were not allowed to be in the same bed warmers (i dont know what they are called):imbar
