  • I agree, a new baby pretty much puts you on a schedule for a while. The 3 yr old should be on a schedule already, and if so you should have some free time from her when she goes to bed in the evenings. Maybe have a family member babysit one night and let you and S/O go out even if just for a movie or a quiet dinner alone w/no kids. As much as we all love our kids, with a new born we all need a much needed break, and a short one won't hurt. Myabe when the baby takes an afternoon nap you and the 3 yr old can lay down and at least rest or have quiet time in the afternoon, if she naps great, if not at least you got some quiet time. Hopefully Daddy helps out with the kids in the evening when your doing dinner and cleaning up, and then you could have time together in the evening some., plus give you a break from the kids. Good luck, a new baby is very tiring.

  • First off no 1 month old will stick to a schedule. They make their own schedule.
    With the loving environment how isn't not loving now? Is there fighting? All you can really do is be there for one another and show each other you love and care for one another. If there is a fight between your so and you. Wait till the kids are in bed or do it away from the kids.

  • Turn off the tv, and talk. There is no way to schedule for a baby. Play kid friendly games with your dd. Enjoy your hubby.
