A pair of adorable newborns have taken the meaning of ‘inseparable’ to a new level. Most mothers of twins are advised not to let her babies sleep in the same crib. But, mom Brenna Grund whenever she separated them, they screamed and cried until reunited.
Brenna Grund, 27, from Minnesota, in the US says her sons Lane and Lennox have only spent one night apart since they were born and that find each other’s presence comforting. She has encountered an interesting issue with her twin babies – in that they scream the house down whenever she tries to put them down separately. Grund is a mother of four boys, and her 8-month-old twins, Lane and Lennox. The twin had to spend time in the ⓃⒾⒸⓊ, and both ended up with a series of ᴄᴏʟᴅs, among other challenges. Through it all, they have only slept apart once. Being close to one another, holding hands and cuddling seems very soothing for the babies, and so every time they are separated, they become very ᴜᴘsᴇᴛand ᴀɢɪᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ. So, Grund lets the twins sleep together, even though the Aᴍᴇʀɪᴄᴀɴ Pᴇᴅɪᴀᴛʀɪᴄ Assᴏᴄɪᴀᴛɪᴏɴ does not recommend siblings sleeping together because it might increase the ʀɪsᴋ of Sᴜᴅᴅᴇɴ Iɴғᴀɴᴛ Dᴇᴀᴛʜ Sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ. The Grund twins have been sleeping together their entire lives and seem to get better rest that way.
After receiving some criticism on TikTok for letting them sleep beside one another, she decided to show what happens when she tries to separate her seven-month-old twins at home in Minnesota, US. Grund shares her adventures with her family with 56,000 TikTok followers, spoke about the bond her two youngest sons share. She share:” My ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ separating them so I took them out after a few minutes of not calming down and put them in bed next to each other and they fell asleep within two minutes. I can’t say it enough. Their bond is something only a twin can understand. It’s so incredible as their mum to watch.”
The mom also explained that when the boys get bigger, they will be separated, but for now this is how they sleep best. She added:” It’s very soothing and calming for them to cuddle each other, hold hands, and it’s just something that they are used to.” The majority of commenters were in support of Brenna’s decision. One person wrote:” Why would anyone want to separate them? They have built in comfort with each other. I’m jealous. Of course you should let them cuddle and be happy!!” Another parent added:” My twins don’t sleep together because they always wake each other up…. BUT if they slept better together I 100% would support it! Do whatever works!”
