Getting them to sleep through

Hi I have 2 dds aged 14months and 2.5years. Little one is teething at the moment and matter what I try she just can settle and sleep through at the moment which I have accepted as she's in pain. However my eldest will not fall asleep in her own bed and sleep straight through. This means I am getting up to the both of them numerous times in the night leaving me extremely tired and agitated and barely able to function most days. We've had a testing year so far their dad and I have separated. We were then put in a homeless hostel meaning I had to bed share with the eldest and we're now finally settled in our own place but still finding I'm bed sharing just to try and get some sleep at least any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If it was me I would just go with the bed sharing if you get more sleep. I'm sure someone will be along with more helpful advice but I'd just want the maximum sleep the easiest way. I co slept with DS1 till he was about 2.5/3.

If you can bedshare still then maybe stick with that. it usually takes kids longer to adjust than adults so maybe they just feel more secure sleeping with you.
sounds like a tough year sad just remember "this too shall pass"
