This Time Lapse Video Of A Mom Putting Her Twins To Bed Is Hilarious And Exhausting!

Oh you parents of multiples, I don’t know how you do it! Putting one toddler to bed is a challenge itself, but putting two to bed is downright exhausting! Henriette Jonassen is a Norwegian mother of twins who decided to take a video of her struggles putting her twin toddlers to bed. The mom wrote on her YouTube page that thanks to the late sunset and warmer summer weather, putting the kids to bed has been a bit of a struggle. She also said that while the boys normally share a room she thought she’d try them out in separate rooms.

I’ve been struggeling with getting my twins asleep for a few weeks now (due to extremely hot weather and long, sunny days), and I’ve tried different methods. This one was definitely the worst one! But it gave me a good laugh tho.
And BTW: they have always shared room, I just thought I’d try something different for a few days, and it turned out to be a bad idea.

She also wrote on her blog that the summer weather was the cause for the change in routine writing, ‘normally, I would put them to bed, sing a few songs while tickeling their backs and close the door behind me. That worked out great, and they usually felt asleep within 30 minutes. But that changed.’

After watching this video I’d say that Henriette and all you other parents of multiples deserve an award! Or at least one good night’s sleep! Check out this hilarious video and let me know if you can relate!

  1. I think that whole video was rediculous.Mothers like that who don’t set rules and put their foot down,that you do not get out of that bed again. Its obvious she didn’t say anything,just kept putting them back in the room and walking back out.

  2. I am a mother to 2 sets of natural twins. 2 year d identical boys and 2 month old fraternal girls. Aside from them, I have an older son of 13, and daughter of 10. Life is a motion of constant correction. I am ever the thankful parent for having my older children to help. And so blessed that I can smile through each day, another day of my sanity.

  3. I was watching super nanny and this is Exactly how she directed the parents to put their kids to bed. First time tell them, after that ignore them and put them back to bed bc they just want your reaction. I would die

  4. I have actually read that in regards to getting young children to stay in bed you should try not to engage with them. Just quietly keep putting them back and sticking to the plan. They will eventually get it or be too tired to try it anymore.

  5. Ok, granted, I’m not a parent of twins. But I have nannied for twin boys since they were younger than these two. This included putting them to bed, countless nights and nap times. The different rooms this young was a bad idea, as she learned very quickly. My boys are 11 now. But they didn’t get their own rooms until they were 7 or 8. I don’t care what the books say. The easiest way to get a kid (or two) to stay in bed, is to lay there with them for a bit until they wind down. Read them a story. When the story is done, just lay there in silence. Maybe tickle their backs or play with their hair. It’s good bonding time for all of you and who doesn’t love just…silence…especially after a full day off twin toddlers! If after you leave, they get out of bed, No, a conversation doesn’t need to happen. But, you don’t just dump them in the bed and leave…you repeat the same process. Take them back and lay with them for 5 minutes in silence. If they try to talk, gently shush them. I’m far from super nanny, and maybe my boys are just better behaved for me than they are their parents, who knows…but this bedtime video was way more frustrating than hilarious to watch!
