  • You will make it work somehow, it will all be fine. These situations are stressful, but in the end things are great, and the kids will probably be the best of friends since they are going to be so close. Chin up honey, it will be fine!

  • I got pregnant with my son when my daughter was 3 months old. I can tell you is hard in the beginning but then you get a routine. My son was born 4 days before my daughter turned 1. The day after I got out of the hospital after delivering my son I was decorating for my daughters 1st birthday party. The loved to fight (still do sometimes) but they are friends the other times. I have thought many times that it is easier to have twins then it is to have kids this close apart. For the first year it is like a deja-vu feeling. If you have any questions you can PM me.

  • As he gets a bit older and becomes mobile you will have a bit more freedom to move around...and so will he of course. Give it a couple more months and things will get a bit easier in that respect. And take advantage of the offers from friends and family to help you out so you can rest and take care of yourself, your son, and the newest addition. Don't stress about the housework, it will be there tomorrow (and the next day, and the next after that), think of easy meals to make for yourself that are healthy...use the crock pot, make breakfast for dinner, keep fresh fruits and veggies on hand for snacks...and nap when your son does whenever you can. Best of luck to you sweetie!

  • I will have 4 kids under 4 years in November. It can get crazy with little ones so close in age. But, you have 8 months to get your little guy on a schedule. At one year he will probably be taking 2 naps a day. Rest when both kids go to sleep! The house will be a mess for a while, but that's ok! I think the hardest thing was bedtime. My oldest was used to being held and rocked for a little while. It never failed that the baby needed fed at that time. I would ask my oldest to lay down and wait for mommy to feed his brother. I would rock him afterwards. He quickly adjusted to the new routine. Some days you will feel like you are going crazy, bit it is so wonderful to have them close. My first 2 are the best of friends!!!
