  • I have an almost 21 month old son & a 2 month old daughter . my son sleeps with us and he wakes up atleast once in the middle of the night he wakes up wanting a bottle though & if he doesn't get it he will keep crying . maybe it's just a stage , im not sure ?

    GOD bless.

  • sounds like she is realizing that the baby is real and is not going away. you might want to try spending time with just you and her right before bed. take her into her bedroom at night and read to her or sing to her or even let her lay on your bed and watch a movie with mommy before bed or a tv show.
