Help For Toddler & Baby Sharing a Room?

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: Moving to a 2 bedroom meant that our 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter would be sharing a bedroom. My toddler can sleep anywhere so we moved him into our room while the baby got over the loud, sleep-training hump. She was doing fine on her own so we moved her brother back in. It is not going well...

They both go to sleep fine but when the baby wakes in the night, instead of getting right back to sleep like she trained herself to do, she starts calling for her brother and within seconds, is in the throws of an epic cry. My gut says she needs to cry it out and get over it but I  feel so bad for my older one. Do they make toddler sized ear plugs? Do I keep pulling him out into my room on bad nights? Any advice is much appreciated!
