My husband works a swing shift, leaving me as the only consistant parent to handle bedtime with our 4 year old daughter and 14 month old son. Little Girl has a strong bedtime routine in place, and up until now, I nursed Baby Boy while I read her stories and he typically dosed off at the same time. Now, however, nursing isn't working. He's becoming a challenge at night, and I'm having trouble establishing a routine for him because I also have Little Girl to put down. How do others handle two kids, one parent at night?
