That's a hard one. I went through this at the beginning of the summer. We moved our 5 mo. old in with our 2.5 yr.old. I try to keep them on the same nap and bedtime schedule. This is definately not perfect, but my baby is so laid back she can cope with whatever her older sister puts her through. I've also learned that the more I go up and try to get my toddler to go to sleep the more she is naughty so that I come up. So now I try to wait out the singing, jumping, talking, and kicking the wall. I only go up once after about an hour to check her diaper. She tends to have bm at that time. Then things tend to settle down. I'm sorry if this wasn't much help.
