Do they share a room? Makayla is 4 months old and Matthew is almost 2. I have her in our room in a bassinet because i am afraid to put her in her crib, because i think they will both wake up if one does. so what does everyone do? Do they eventually get used to it and both not wake up?

I have a 25month old and one on the way. We have an extra room but I think I will have them share a room for a while once the little one arrives. A friend of mine did the same thing and it helped with bonding. The older one might wake up at first but you'd be surprised how soon they can tune this stuff out! They can usually role over and go back to sleep with no problem.
Hope this helps!
Thanks Nicole (MommaDucks) for my new & awesome siggy.
Hi... Mommy of a 15 month toddler, and a 3 month old infant... Currently, the boys do not share a room, but in a few months, I plan to change that and have them sleeping in the same room so I can turn my first born's old room into a play area with all their toys.
I know a mom who has two the same age gap as mine, and they sleep in the same room together. If one wakes and cries, the other is likely to as well, but I'm sure in time they get used to being together and learn to ignore the other's crying. Both of my boys sleep through the night, so I have no idea if we'd have any issues if they were together now.
My daughter was 2 when we had my son. He was in our room till about 7 months old and then they shared a room. It was fine at night because my daughter is a deep sleeper and she got used to him crying. The only thing I didn't like was nap time. My daughter eventually quit napping and it was hard to keep her out of the bedroom when my son was taking a nap. Beisdes that, it was not a big deal to have them share!
