Hi! We are expecting a new baby in August. It is still a long way away but I am concerned about how the new baby will affect our current sleeping arrangement with our two year old. She goes to sleep in her own bed at night but wakes up in the middle of the night and webring her into our bed. When the new baby arrives, he/she will sleep in a co-sleeper for the first 4-6 months right next to the bed, which will still leave plenty of room for our toddler, but I worry that the baby's cries will interfere with her sleep. Does anyone have any experience with this?
I assume we will do bed sharing with the new baby too, once it is older, and I guess our toddler will have to move to the floor or learn to stay in her own bed all night. Sleeping has been a huge struggle for us and I just don't know how we are going to strike the right balance. I would appreciate any feedback!
