For mothers with kids less than 2 years apart. PSA.
Lately I've seen a lot of posts from mothers with babies/children that are really close in age, they are usually complaining about how hard it is to have two under two. They complain that they can't leave their house alone with them because it is too hard, they can't take their older children to any activities, and they can't run errands without help.
It is all in their heads, they've told themselves so many times that it is too hard, they can't do it alone and now they are too afraid to try.
I have two children that are 12 months apart and my husband was deployed when they were babies. Those babies and I went everywhere and I mean everywhere. I've even flown with them, by myself; I've taken 12+ hour road trips with them...by myself. It is all about just making the decision to do it and just doing it.
We used several different techniques. Most of the time we used a double stroller, for shorter trips I put the youngest in a front pack/sling and the oldest in a smaller stroller. When they were both walking I used harnesses for them and we invested in a sit & stand stroller for longer trips.
It can be done ladies. No more excuses. Get out there and live life to the fullest, show those babies the world around them. Every trip will get easier and easier as you practice and find what works and what doesn't work. You decided to have these children so close together so it is time to step up and be the mother they deserve!
