Ok, so I'm 36 weeks with number two girl on the way.... My first girl is 26 months old. As the day approaches I am struggling with how I will ensure my toddler wont feel neglected or left out. She hasn't nursed since she was 14 months but especially with the talk of the new baby, she still obsesses over "mommy's milkies." I worry she will get upset seeing new baby nurse. I also worry about her feeling like she isn't getting all the attention. My other question is how do you juggle the two? From going out to the store with both to getting them out of the car to getting chores done???? I am an attachment paranting kind of Mommy and didn't do the cry it out thing until daugter was 14 months...I'm hoping to do the same with the new baby by wearing her in a wrap and not letting her cry. I just want to be a good mommy and not have either of them feel neglected. Any advise from Mommy's with two or more would be much appreciated!!Answer Question
My daughter was just one when I brought her sister home from the hospital, you will be surprised how innovative and resourceful we as mothers can be. Use your judgement and do your best, but do not kill yourself in the process, I asked for help at least for a while, my mom was heaven sent and my dad was my hero, and after you get comfortable handling both you will be just fine!
