For some reason your twins appear to be insecure. This is very common at this age and many babies have a strong separation anxiety.This is a temporary phase.Their Dad must certainly play his part in keeping them busy and it would help if you could enlist the help of grandparents or a nanny to take some of the pressure off you and start getting them used to other people being around them.
