A new baby & now the others won't go to sleep?

Theere's a newborn Baby girl in the house. Now the 4 year old & 22 month old boy won't go to sleep like they used to! Has anyone experienced this? Is so how did you handle this? Who knew with things being so different would cause such sleeping. That part of it is so touching & heart warming! But everyone needs their sleep. Any tricks for naps & night time sleep? They do really Love their new sister. Any suggestions for this would greatly be appreciated! Thank you in advance!!

  • I make sure that every night daddy and I take turns watching the baby while the other one gets the two older ones ready for bed, baths, story, tucked in. It seems to work most of the time, we still have some issues every once in awhile and it did take about a month to get into a good routine, just remember this is a huge adjustment for them so take your time and have patience. Oh as for naps both my older girls stopped taking naps on their own at about 1 year old. Good luck!
