Did Masjid e Nabawi had two Muezzins during the Prophet's lifetime simultaneously?

There are two Hadiths that I recently came across:

‘A’ishah reported: Ibn Umm Maktum was the mu'adhdhin of the Messenger of Allah (May peace be upon him) and he was blind. Sunan Abi Dawud 535

and

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar:

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Bilal pronounces the Adhan at night, so keep on eating and drinking (Suhur) till Ibn Um Maktum pronounces the Adhan." Sahih al-Bukhari 620

Did Masjid e Nabawi have two Muezzins during the Prophet's lifetime simultaneously? If yes, why were two azaans given for Fajr prayer in Ramadan for the same jamaat?
