For the past 3 years, my baby has slept in my room with me, and my 8-yr-old has had her own room. Lately, though, they've been wanting to spend the night together a lot, so I moved into my daughter's room and let them have the Master room.
However, since the 3-yr-old is used to falling asleep alone (as I didn't come to bed until long after her bedtime), she can't seem to get past the excitement of having someone in her room with her. It's been 3 weeks, and she's STILL not letting her sister get any sleep. This is made worse by the fact that the eldest spends almost half of her nights at her dad's house, so whenever she comes home, it's novel again!
I've been letting my eldest fall asleep in my bed and moving her over later, just so she can get some sleep, but I don't want to do this for the rest of their lives! Any tips on how to make this easier for us all?
