It appears to be birth and death information for each child here. So, should I do two records for each child?

Thank you for your question, we looked into this batch: Seems to be a mixed records- The project instructions has so much information on what this project is, and how to index this project.
The years that are outside the date ranges will be indexed. If you are 90% sure that these are both Death and birth records then you can follow the PI guidelines: Some registers were kept in journal format, where non-vital events, such as confirmations or accounts, may be mixed in with vital records that should be indexed. - So, if these are Birth and Death records they can be indexed for both.
We detected a problem in this batch : in What to Index, the images on how to index these records are not opening, we have enquired about this problem to internal department.
The following images are not opening: How to Index a Birth and Baptism Record, How to Index a Death and Burial, How to Index a Banns and Marriage Record.
Our internal department is aware that the How to Index examples do not open. This is a very old project and we are unable to correct this problem. Please use the written Project Instructions, and the Field Helps and the examples there to index this project.
We appreciate your willingness to index this important project.
@EllaVanCamp1 We will need a Shared Batch code in order to help.
You can find that by following these steps.
The share batch number is the Batch ID. It is the series of letters and numbers. The Image Name doesn't help.
This is an example of where to find the batch code, batch number, or batch ID- here circled.
One of the best ways to give the batch information is to copy the title information which is just above the green line if you are indexing or the red line if you are reviewing.

The last 7 digits are the batch code and the most necessary but having the entire title is the most helpful.

Most Swedish records I have done are either a birth/baptism or a death/burial record. This one seems to be birth/death of children....so do I do a birth index and a death index for each child?
