Hello:


My daughter stood between her uncle and her auntie. The uncle held her left hand and the auntie held her right hand. Each of them held each of my daughter's hands.


Can I use the two "each" here?


Thank you.

    To say so would mean (somewhat awkwardly) that the uncle held both of your daughter's hands, and the auntie also held both of your daughter's hands.

    "Each of them held one of my daughter's hands" would express your stated meaning.
