I have a 7 month old and a 3 year old. It is very easy to spend time with each of since the 7 month old gets up earlier than the 3 year old and around noon the baby will nap I spend time playing with my toddler until his nap. We usually take them to the park 2 times a week and have a few special outings a month for the toddler. Like next month we plan to take him to the State fair. You will set your own thing and it will work out just fine.

The baby will not notice if you are reading to your 3-year-old when feeding her and many 3-year-olds love to help out, so try doing things like that. Can the 3-year-old change his/her baby while you change yours? You might want to see if there is a child in your neighborhood age 10 - 12 who will come over and play with you older child. Sometimes you'll find one who will work for a dollar or two per hour.
