I have a 15m old and a 2 1/2 yr old. They have always had separate rooms. However, we will be moving into a 2br apt in the near future. For now we are at my parents, they are in sep rooms here. But I think I should put the babies crib in the room where my older and I are sleeping. So they get used to it. They are both terrible light sleepers and the last couple nights have not been fun, being up for a good 2 hour stretch when the baby wakes, he isn't going back down....since he isn't in his own room....so I take him into bed with my other son and I. Because everyone's gotta sleep!!
My question is, what are suggestions for this transition? Do I ignore them if they are up there messing around, do I just lay down in there for a few days until they get to sleep?? This is honestly something I never wanted to happen until they were older....because neither sleep through the night yet. Which is exhausting still as it is. And the daddy is kind of out of the picture right now. So it's all me. What to do?

My 4 month old sleeps in my bed, don't care what anyone else thinks, but she really sleeps because of it. She only wakes up 2 times a night to nurse. She goes 4-6 hours between feedings. If it really isn't a problem for you, then put them in bed with you. Put one kid to bed before the other. This is what I do with my kids. I put one to sleep, then the other. Also, if one wakes in the middle of the night, just keep them in their beds. If they are all in the bedroom with you, just lay them down, and do not acknowledge them if they are rolling around. Also, I let my kids read until they fall asleep. It helps them relax and get sleepy. However, only worry about this if you choose to keep them in their beds. Good luck with everything.
