Welcome to askbaby! The only definite thing unfortunately is it may be a stage and therefore to let it run through. Do you have a partner/spouse? If you do, switch nights on when to take care of the boys at night; like you get up one night, and he/she gets up the next. Or try asking close relatives or friends and neighbors to watch them for a day, that way you won't have to worry about them and get the sleep you need as well. If that doesnt work slowly try weaning them to your hours like 5-10 minutes at a time, so its not too much difference. hope i could help at all. best of luck to you with this entire ordeal
