I am going to be putting Marc in the same room with Nick soon, when he is 8 weeks old, how do I get to him and feed him and get him back to sllep, with out bothering Nick?

Nick is only 14 months old, and a pretty light sleeper, even tough we have had constant music in his room since he was born.

  • My 2 yr old, and my 1 yr old have always been in the same room, and I used to have that problem too. At first she would wake up when I was taking care of the yonger one, and I would give her some more to drink, and let her cry for a few minutes (she was just tired), or she would just fall back to sleep. It only took a few weeks, and then she didn't even notice me coming in anymore. And eventually the younger one will stop needing you in the middle of the night.

  • before i moved my son out of our room and into his room with his sister i made sure that his nighly feeding schedule was solid. so if he was going to wake up at 3:00 am i would set my alarm clock for 2:50, that gave me enough time to warm bottle, get diapers and thing like that ready so that way when 3:00 rolled around he wouldn't start crying and if he did he wouldn't be crying for long.

  • My sons share a room and there is enough room and the room is set up right that I have my 5 year olds bed on one side of the room and the crib is by the door. So he really doesn't get bothered and too when the baby was smaller I would take him in another room and feed him.
