    I never comment on stuff but this was so unbelievably like my experience that I had to!! My daughter was about 18 months and I was 8 months pregnant and we went through exactly what you describe. Now she is just over 2 and the baby is 6.5 months, they are sharing a room (as of last 2 weeks) and she isn’t waking at all, him just once a night for a feed at about 2am. There was some pretty intense sleep deprivation between now and then but it is really starting to improve (all to change soon again I expect!) so hang on in, it does get better!!! We didn’t really do anything in particular to help our daughter settle herself, she just one day seemed to do it and now chats to her brother and teddies instead of crying for me. Having a baby and a toddler is not easy but I swear i haven’t found anything harder than having a toddler, working and being pregnant! Now if I could just get them both to sleep past 6am I will be laughing! Good luck with it all, sounds like you are doing a great job with your little man!
