  • I know the feeling! I had a 2 year old and a brand new baby. My 2 year old was waking up and then waking the baby up.I tried EVERYTHING i could. So I bought her a little tv and put it in her room. It runs all night long..I did feel bad at 1st.But then I realized I had to do something or I was never gonna sleep. but she wont come in my room anymore..she will just get her water and go back to bed..

  • maybe make sure the 3 y o is not sleeping too much during the day--one nap a day should be good--also could be 3 y o is just wanting momy's attention. would try to plan some alone time. good luck you must be exhausted.
