Q I’m about to move my six-month-old daugh­ter into the same bed­room as her big sis­ter. How do I man­age bed­time?

Co­or­di­nat­ing sleep rou­tines be­tween chil­dren of dif­fer­ent ages can be tricky! But cre­ate a rou­tine where you put your baby into bed first. Take some quiet ac­tiv­i­ties for your older daugh­ter to do up­stairs while you do this, then she can have her bath and story time while her lit­tle sis­ter is fall­ing asleep. Your baby should be in her deep­est sleep 40 to 60 min­utes af­ter she drops off, so that’s the per­fect time for you to pop your older daugh­ter into bed.
