    I have 1 and 2 week olds living together and we are about to get a couple of 3 day olds is it ok to put them in with the others or do I need to keep them separate for awhile?

    At 3 days, they're mobile enough to go in with the older ones. As long as you have enough space, they'll be fine and the sooner they go together, the better.
