When you’re a twin, your bond is incredibly strong. But an adorable pair of newborns takes the meaning of ‘inseparable’ to a whole new level. Mom Brenna Grund had an interesting problem with her twins – they scream the house down whenever she tries to put them down separately.
In a video she shared online, the 27-year-old mom showed how her eight-month-old twins have an incredible bond when they refuse to sleep in separate beds. Brenna said her twins – Lane and Lenox – find each other’s presence soothing and comforting and have only been apart a night since they were born. After receiving some criticism on TikTok for letting them sleep next to each other, she decided to show what happens when she tries to separate her seven-month-old twins at her home in Minnesota, USA. Ky. However, the American Pediatric Association does not recommend sharing a bed between siblings.
Brenna, a mother of four who shares her adventures with her family with 56,000 TikTok followers, talked about the bond her two youngest sons share. She said: ‘My heart broke at 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 were asleep within two minutes.’ In the clip, the children scream until their faces turn red as they are left to sleep alone – and they only calm down when Brenna brings them back together.
The mother also explained that as the Bᴏʏs get older, they will be separated, but for now this is how they sleep best. She added: “The fact that they’re cuddling, holding hands is so gentle and soothing and it’s just soᴍᴇᴛʜing they’ve gotten used to.” The majority of commenters supported Brenna’s decision.

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 would 100% support that! Do whatever works!”
