I have a newborn session scheduled for this Sunday at 9 am. Just got a request for another newborn the same day.

Anybody ever do two newborns in one day? Would you recommend it?

I know I'm usually exhausted after just one...thoughts?

Two of any session other than a wedding should be do-able from a business perspective, but if you don't think you can do it, than don't book it. It's better to turn down a job than to accept it and turn in a sub-par result because you're tired.

You might find yourself spending a lot more time than you had planned at the first shoot, which then will add stress when you think about being late for the second shoot.

Sure, physically, you can do it, but if any of that stress transfers to the babies or their parents, then you will be dealing with cranky people.

What time would the other shoot be?

Newborns are so unpredictable that I'd make sure I had at least 4 hours for each shoot. Given that you're starting early in the morning, it's not impossible in regard to time. If you don't think you are physically/creatively able to handle it, I would turn down the second.
