I have a 17 month old son. We are going to be moving and having a new baby all within 2-3 weeks of eachother (completely unplanned about the move, we should have already been settled). As far as the day we move, would it be more upsetting to him if I let my SIL watch him the day and night of the move then just bring him into the new house after everything is there? Or should I keep him with me during the move and let him see whats happening. I know it will be easier for me if someone is watching him, but I don't want him freaking out too much. My husband also just went back to work, so basically its 3 big changes for him in such a short time, poor guy. Thanks for any input.Answer Question

We moved a lot when my oldest was little. She didn't seem to mind much. At first she kept asking about home. We just told her this is home now. She eventually got it. Same thing when my son was that age. We moved again and he did the same. I'd let your SIL watch him. Trust me, moving AND keeping up with a toddler while pregnant or just after having a baby is no fun. Been there and done both. We had my mom watch ours while we moved. She was there the first time. The other times she was at her house. They reacted the same so I don't think it matters. Do what you feel is best for you and him.
