How do I get my toddler to leave her younger sister alone and go to sleep?

My now 23 month old daughter has always been laid down awake at night to go to sleep on her own and slept thru the night since she was about 6 months old. Even after we moved her to her toddler bed at 18 months old she still went right off to sleep with no trouble. We would lay her down around 9 pm and close the door and she would be asleep usually within 10 minutes. Now that her younger (6 month old) sister is in the room with her in her own crib, she wants to get up as soon as we close the door and mess with her sister. When we first put her sister in the room she was fine, her routine never changed and she would go right to sleep. But after about a month she started this getting out of bed thing. How do I get my toddler to stay in the bed and go to sleep like before????

I would try putting them to bed at separate times. Put the older one to bed earlier, so that she is asleep when you bring the baby in.
