  • If it's raining out and you've ran out of ideas to occupy the kiddos - head to the pet store to look a mini zoo, lol! My kids love it, I usually end up buying something real cheap so the workers don't get annoyed or something, but I think they understand the situation too!

  • Probably my sister.. she was having a really hard time BF'ing.. and her DD wasn't gaining weight.. and I told her it didn't matter what she was feeding as long as she was gaining weight properly. I think it made her feel a little better, cuz I'm her younger sister, and successfully breastfed. I also gave her a lot of advice to help her learn how to breastfeed, but she didn't take any of it.... :(

  • Sleep when baby sleeps in the beginning. It doesn't matter how crazy you house gets, anything can be cleaned back up in a few days. Sleep is more important in the beginning.

  • The best advice I ever got was to let the older sibling hold the newborn WHENEVER she wanted, even if the newborn was sleeping. It wasn't hard at all, and she got over it within a week. I think it really helped to make her feel like the baby was hers, and she has never been jealous of her little sister. My girls are 20 months apart and are currently 3.5 and almost 2. They get along very well.
