A MOM of twin boys decided to opt-out of the traditional baby crib for her newborns – now they actually fall asleep on their own.
Katelyn Parkinson has shared on social media the long list of benefits of the Montessori sleeping method.

Instead of cribs, Parkinson invested in Montessori floor beds for her boys ever since they were just four months old.
The beds on the ground give babies the freedom to move around without the fear of them falling.
She explained in the clip: “We simply tuck them in and walk out.”
Since the two boys have both their mattresses side by side, it also gives them the chance to fall asleep next to each other.
However, they didn’t use to fall asleep on their own right away. The loving mom admitted it did take some time and “love.”
Now, if the babies aren’t sleepy, they can safely crawl around the room or play with each other, which lets them “bond.”
Parkinson noted: “Every night after we leave the room, the first thing they do is find each other.”
And sometimes, the twins even sleep on the same mattress together.
And while one mama was sharing a different sleeping tip for her newborns, a fellow parent revealed how you can keep your child entertained during their bath.
The mom, Kate Bast, revealed her parenting hack in a video she shared online.
All she does is take some very small toys she has around the house and squish them into balloons.
Next, Kate fills the balloons up with water and freezes them.
Then, she removes the balloon to reveal a frozen “egg” with toys in the middle.
She plops them in the bathtub and watches them “hatch” with her kids as they go through their routine.
She added in the comment section that it’s important to “always supervise your children when doing the activities and hacks” shared by her.
