i have a 4 yo and a 22mo, the oldest started school this year, so she needs her sleep. but for over a month now, the 22 mo wakes up crying in the middle of the night, and walks over to mommy and daddy's bed, and sleeps there for the rest of the night. i use to let her cry it out, but she wakes her sister up, and she starts crying and it caos all of a sudden!
i've tried putting her back in her bed once she's asleep, she wakes up 5 mins later, crying, back to mommy's bed, i try again, 3, 4, 5 times!!!! and she still wakes up and comes to my bed. and she won't fall asleep with her dad, i have to cary her or be next to her in bed for her to fall asleep.
it's interfering with our "love" life, it's so hard for me to get in the mood, and a baby in our bed does not help, LOL!
any suggestions???

yes they share a room, they sleep in our (my sister and I) old bunk beds =D
if it lasts over 10 mins, i go and grab her, but usually she just walks out of her room and in to ours, she even does it with her eyes closed, it's pretty hilarious, heh! one time, after putting her back in her bed for the third time, she climbed up to her sisters bed and fell asleep right at the top of the ladder! after she had stopped crying, i said "i'll go in to see if she needs a blanket", i freaked out when i saw her up there!!! luckly she hadn't rolled over!! she would've fallen flat on her face!!!!
if when she starts crying, she doesn't wake her sister up, then i'll let her cry it out for 10 mins, after that i do carry her to our bed.
