Anybody have experience doing bedtime alone with a bedsharing toddler and young baby? We're expecting #2 in June. DD, currently 20 months/will be 28 months when the baby is born, needs me to lie down with her (she is not in our room anymore, but we have a double mattress in her room and bedshare part time) for probably an average of 20 minutes before she falls asleep. I don't want to take that away from her, but I need to figure out how to make it work once the baby gets here. I can't be two places at once! I would be willing to teach her to fall asleep with me sitting or standing in the room instead of lying next to her, but presently when I try that she crawls out of bed and sits or stands next to me, screaming. I would also be happy bedsharing with both, with the baby in the cosleeper and DD on the other side of me, but not sure about the practicality of that (getting them to fall asleep at the same time, me not being able to get up after they're asleep for safety reasons, etc.)
Anybody been there or have any advice?
