my 2 year old is still in bed with us, as well as our new baby...the toddler wakes sometimes once a night, sometimes more...but he'll cry and cry sometimes and there is no getting him back to sleep until he's ready. Which of course wakes the newborn. How can I get my toddler to sleep better thr ough the night (and naps!?)

Does he still nurse? What's the reason for the crying? What's your bed set-up (i.e. who sleeps in what order?) Is it the noise or the movement waking up the baby?

He does not still I have no idea why he still wakes up. Most nights he's easy to console, we just snuggle and he's fine...then there are other nights when there is nothing you can do, he's just ticked he woke up or something.  We are in a king sized bed...Husband, toddler, mom...then in a twin blow up next to my bed is the newborn.  When she wakes I nurse/sleep with her, then sometimes go back into the king sized bed to snuggle with the toddler. So, it is definitely the noise that wakes the baby up. I love our set up, the toddler just needs to be quiet!

Did you find a solution to this?  My dd still had phases at 2yo (maybe even 3yo) where she woke crying during the night.
