How do we stop the baby from waking our son?
A crying baby can definitely keep an older sibling awake. One thing you may be able to do is to move the older brother or sister’s bedroom farther away from where the new baby sleeps. If that is not possible, try using some noise masking devices. You can try a fan, noise machine, soft music, or even noise canceling earmuffs. Avoid using a television, tablet, or anything with a screen, because light from those screens can disrupt sleep. Keep in mind that these things are temporary. Once your baby can sleep through the night, it will no longer be an issue.About Dr. Kevin Smith
