One of the good ways to get some quiet and a nice rest with your faulty doors is to install a sweep at the bottom of it. These sweeps are easy to put and have a few more benefits besides noise reduction itself.
Even though most of the people use it for improving heating efficiency by installing it on their front door, it is perfect if you have a 3-month-old screamer in the room next to yours. The thing is, my baby used to wake up every 4 hours until the age of one and that was driving us crazy.
