I have a 6 year old and a 6 week old. I'm doing my best to get the hang of having two, but the baby is making it difficult. He is very fussy most of the time. I am trying to keep my older son's bedtime routines the same as always because he has school and I just don't want his world changing too much since I had another baby. Problem is, the baby has a terrible witching hour (hours, I should say) and it's during bedtime. It is so distracting for my older son and while he is very understanding about it, I can't help but feel terrible that he is getting such little attention from me.
I am not a fan of leaving the baby to cry either so that won't work for me. I want them both to get what they need but it seems impossible at this point. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks ladies!
