My two boys are a couple days shy of 13 months apart. Our baby Gavin is only 3 weeks old so he will be in our room for at least another month or more in his bassinet. My concern is when I move him into the room he will share with his brother that they will wake each other up in the middle of the night. Our 13 month old still wakes up at night on some nights. He was getting his top two teeth and he would literally wake up every 30 minutes. It was horrible. They popped through yesterday and for the past week he hasn't woken up during the night, yay! But what about when the baby cries and wakes up? I'm scared it will wake the older one then we will have two screaming kids in the middle of the night. I'm not really sure what to do or what other people's experiences are with this.

I would just keep baby in your room until you are sure they will be ok together. We didn't put our girls together who are 2 days shy of a year apart until they were 1 & 2.. and they did sometimes used to wake each other but it never took them long to fall back to sleep.. sometimes though (quite rare, only when lacey was teething) we had to end up bringing her in our room!! as she would scream and keep rhianna awake
..together for 12 years..

from my experience with raising twins in the same room, the sooner they learn to sleep through each other crying, the better. Of course the first few nights will be tough, but it'll be tougher as they get older IMHO. My guys have always slept in their own cribs/beds in the same room and they learned early to sleep through tantrums and crying. Now they are 2.5 and could sleep through a bombing I'm sure

Lucky mother to five!
