I need some advice from anyone who's experienced this.
I'm at my wits end with my DD - she is 27 mths and we recently had a baby who is now 4 weeks old.
She has always been a golden sleeper, 3 hours nap during the day and bed by 7 at night without a peep.
Now since I have been home with DS she is getting progressively worse and now screams when I put her to bed, won't nap and is exhausted. Last night she went to sleep at 11pm only because I nursed her on my lap until she drifted off.
I understand this is probably pretty normal, but need some help as to how to deal with it - don't want to start any new habits that I can't sustain. Also don't want to leave her crying which normally I'm ok with, but DD is obviously feeling a bit put out with the new baby and struggling with the shared attention - maybe feeling a little neglected in her mind. I don't want to reinforce this by leaving her to be upset in bed for hours when what she is looking for is a little extra love.
Thank you so much!
