DS waking up the baby

Eeek this drives me nuts. My 2.5 year old will try at all costs to wake up his just 5 mo old baby brother. I know you mammas know how hard it can be to get anything done, esp w/a kiddo or more. Is there any advice for a way to get DS from continuing on his baby-waking crusade? It not only hurts me from getting anything done - including quality one on one time w/DS but it really hurts the baby's mood, etc b/c he doesn't get the sleep he needs by napping during the day & when he's overtired it takes about a million times more effort to get him to sleep.

Oh & putting him in another room doesn't really work either b/c DS will intentionally scream as loud as he can to wake him up.

My almost 3 year old does this with the twins too so if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears also!!! He climbs in the crib with them to do it!

I'm in the same boat. My almost three year old daughter does this with my 5 month old son EVERY TIME HE TAKES A NAP but then when he is up and awake playing she ignores him .....
