Can you talk over these issues with your big boy during the day and ask him to help you come up with a workable solution? sounds like it isn't a sleep issue as much as a jealousy issue with the baby? if the baby is new, maybe the adjustment to his own room was premature and he feels left out? If he wakes and is waiking the baby, can you go back to his room with him and lie down, while the baby stays asleep in the big bed with dad?
Do you have a regular time to spend with just him? Even if it is a half an hour at the gorcery store twice a week or so, while your partner has the baby. Does the baby nap well? Are you using that time to play with and bond with the new big brother?
