Of little ones close in age. I have been taking care of DS who is about 11 months and my niece who is 3 months. I am exhausted. I have no clue how you gals do it everyday.

I was dumb enough to do it for free.

Quoting MommyOfOnee:

I have a 7mo and am watching my 1.5yr old brother, I have no clue how people do it either! I am actually going to tell my step mom that I can't do it anymore, 2 bucks an hour is sooo not worth it!

I took care of her for 4 hours. Not that bad but she was constipated and DS has a molar coming in so they were both kind of cranky. Plus DS is an only child so he was being jealous. Though he is getting better the more he is around her.

Thanks. That reminds me to call and thank my mom, who had 6 kids in 10 years--3 in diapers at once!

Mine are 19 months apart & it hasn't been to bad! It's nice the older my youngest gets the more they can play together, which is really nice!

Oh no sorry you had a rough time! :( hope they both feel better soon! Mu DD&brother are both only kids but DD isn't jealous, my brother is. He hits her, pushes her, and drives me nuts. If I try to hold her, he screams. It is driving me batty!

I'm not sure how well I'll be able to handle it...  When my daughter is born this coming January, she and my son will be 11 months apart.  I'm exhausted just caring for one baby right now...

DS is feeling much better. I think the tooth came through but he won't let me check. He tried to bite off my finger when I try.

What I have been doing when he fusses when I hold her is sit on the floor and wrap my other arm around him. It let's him know that she won't take me away from her but I do not put her down because that will teach him crying will get him what he wants. It is working really well. He was just bad the other night cause he did not feel good.
