sibling question

OK actually 2 questions.

I have 2 beautiful girls, 4 years old and 9 days old. Dd4 is an awesome big sister, very hands on and lovey BUT since ydd has been home she constantly talks like a baby. She's never done this before. I realize its normal behavior but how do I make it stop?!?!


Second question. Ydd refuses to sleep on her back! I know its the safest but this kid is adamant. Within 10 min she's screaming, pick her up and put her on your chest and bam asleep, lay her on her belly (only when I'm awake and constantly checking on her) and shell stay asleep a few hours. I don't know what to do!!! This is going to get old quick when I run out of adrenaline and coffee!

Both my kids slept on their belly. If they didn't they wouldn't sleep AT ALL.

My kids both slept on their bellies. As for your odd, I would find something that she likes to do and tell her that only big girls can do it and big girls don't talk like babies. Also, remind her that her job as a big sister is to teach her baby sis things, like how to talk. If she talked like a baby then baby sis won't learn how to talk properly. I have a 6 year old and a 14 week old and my odd takes being a big sis very seriously! Lol

I'm scared she'll try to turn her head or something and not go far enough and end up suffocating....older dd slept on her back but in her Boppy (I know super unsafe) so I never had the belly vs back vs side sleeping issue

That's a good idea!! So your 14 week old is a belly sleeper too?

I'm not against her sleeping on my chest BUT Dh won't let me bring into bed and my couch is so uncomfortable so this won't last long
