My son slept in our room until 2. He's been in his own room for three months. Dd is due next month. We're having her room in with us but moving to a converted garage room across the house. I feel it's too far from DS. If he wakes up while we're asleep he will be unsupervised and that kid gets into danger (hello, he's a toddler lol) so I want to have him room in with us again. Do you think he can sleep through the baby crying? Ill nurse her immediately and he's kinda a heavy sleeper.. Or should I put a taller gate on his door and use a monitor? Wwyd? I'd like to have a playroom for each child and all sleep in the same room because it'd be close and cozy and enjoyable and all... But is it practical? I was thinking DS could get in bed with DH while I nurse DD so he sleeps better.. Or maybe he just won't wake up? I don't like him sleeping across the house and our Door is heavy and must stay closed to keep the dogs out. We wouldn't hear him unless we put a monitor so wwyd?

having the same issue sorta... my daughter is 14 months old. she will be 18 months when her lil brother is born. right now she sleeps in our room. so im wanting to put her n her own room before the baby gets here but idk how she will react. she likes to get in bed with my husband at around 6 or 7 every morning. We were thinking of taking her door off and putting a gate or figureing a way to make sure she cant shut her door. im wanting to get a video monitor so i can put that in her room. she wont have anything in the floor but a few big toys where she cant hurt herself or choke on anything

Put a gate at his door. I do that with DD.
&get a crate for your dogs so the door can stay open? Idk, just what I would do.
