In the hazy newborn days, it can make your life much easier if they’re sharing the same space, especially when you’re stumbling around for those frequent middle-of-the-night feedings. It also helps get them on the same schedule when you’re not schlepping from one room to the next. And your tots are likely comforted by each other’s presence. There’s plenty of time, if you have the space, to give them each their own room as they get bigger (and want some privacy).
