I tried a million different things with DD until we found what worked, so I'm hoping I'll remember a few things to try. I just don't know what I'll be faced with, but I sure hope #2 doesn't at least have allergies or reflux, that would be one less challenge.

Try hands on settling or the Babybliss method. Worked well for us till dd started standing up and stopped self-settling. She hasn't been a perfect sleeper but much better than her brother was. I put the tv on for DS while I settle dd.

There's 2 years difference exactly between my two. You'll definitely need your dd to be able to watch tv etc as any sleep training you do will take quite a lot of time to teach. Personally I felt exactly the same as you about teaching #2 to sleep for exactly the same reasons as you. I didn't realise how time consuming it would be (but I never left DD to cry) - only for it to go out the window several times. The main advantage was reduced night wakings.
