DH and I are going to be separating soon and I am worried about sleep issues. I have a 5 mo. old ds who is fortunately a pretty good sleeper and sleeps in bed with me, but often likes to be rocked to sleep. I also have a 2 1/2 dd who coslept with both stbx and me until a few months ago, at which point she moved to her own room but cosleeps with stbx now. She often takes a half hour to hour to fall asleep and needs someone there with her to fall asleep. I will be having both of them at night once we separate and I am just trying to figure out how to make this work. If ds is teething or having a hard time going to sleep, this will prevent dd from being able to fall asleep. What if they both aren't tired at the same time? It seems they will both be keeping one another awake and no one is going to end up getting any sleep. I had really wanted to transition dd to sleeping on her own, but I don't want to do any more transitions on her right now with the upcoming separation. Any ideas at all to help this go more smoothly?
