my 13mo old still wakes up 3 times a night. i nurse her to sleep and put her in a crib. my 3 yr old sleeps in the same room. when the baby screams to be picked up, the 3 year old wakes up and starts crying, too. just what i need at 2am! the baby wants to nurse back to sleep and drags it out sometimes up to an hour - longer than i can take in the middle of the night. both kids just transitioned to their own room after sleeping in our room/bed. sometimes both kids end up sleeping with us anyway, but i never sleep well with them in the bed. in fact, i hardly sleep at all because i'm so crowded and they thrash around constantly. so, what are your experiences with a 13 mo old sleeping patterns? i would prefer not to sleep train her with a cry it out method (the 3 year old would have to sleep with us for a little while). yet, i'm sooo sleep deprived that's its starting to sound like a good idea. and now that she's over a year i feel less guilty about letting her cry and figuring out how to sleep by herself. please share your experiences and ideas witholding judgment about sleeping choices.
