So, just for a little background.. I have an almost 19 month old daughter, who is very attached to me at night. She has nightmares/terrors and can't go back to sleep without mommy (we've tried getting my husband to get her back to sleep, and all she does is cry for me) Now, I also have a daughter who will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. Our routine in the mornings is when my 18 month old wakes up, usually around 4-5am, she comes in and sleeps in bed with me, and my husband gets the baby when she wakes up (for she is in a bassinet in our room). The past few nights, the baby will stay up literally from when she wakes up around 5, till 7:30 or 8 am, normally right when me and my other daughter are getting up, so my husband gets no sleep in that time.
What he wants to do is feed her, make sure she's changed, and then lay her in my daughters crib. He thinks that if the baby cries, that it won't have an effect (continued in reply)
