Sounds like things are off to a good start. However, if she wakes up during the night, go to her and possibly lie in bed with her until she falls asleep again. This will help reinforce that she has not been abandoned.

Is the baby crib and big girl bed in same room? If so, she will probably take on the attitude that she is big sister and will be protective of her baby sibling.

I am the mother of 5 grown children but I remember when our 3rd daughter was age 2 she refused to go to bed in the baby crib. Yes, it was in same room with 2 sisters but she wanted a big bed all her own, like her sisters. We had a bed frame so at midnight I was sawing slats for the frame and put her baby crib mattress on the frame. She was very happy that night and next day we bought mattress and boxsprings.

Don't think you have anything to worry about as far as the sleeping goes but don't be surprised if your 2 year old reverts back to being a baby to a certain extent. It is a way of testing to be sure mom/dad still love her and no one has taken her place. Make allowances and don't be too strict during this time. You want her to bond with the baby and feel she has not been booted over.
