Question to moms who have children whose age are closer to each other
how do u manage time and sleep with having two small babies?? Does it get easier???
What were the challenges you faced with your children??
My best friend has 2 boys and they are exactly 360 days apart. Just puts the boys down for a nap together and when they do she rest when they do. She finds it easy she don't let anything get on her way. I'm sure it'll get easier as they get older buy for her it just came natural that she was able yo have "good" babies her 6 month old only cries when he's hungry and her oldest doesn't really cry anymore except when hr doesn't feel well
Mine will be 16 months apart. I'm a bit nervous but this is some great advice!
Im with you on that im nervous too wondering how on the world will I be able to do things but as Michelle said its going to get easier as they grow up it gives me comfort
oh yes thank u all ladies for the wonderful advice I been having insomnia for a couple of days now
For me its been harder the first three months or so. Everyone is adjusting to having a new baby in the house and baby needs pretty much constant attention. I would sit on the couch and nurse so if the older kids needed me the could come up and sit have them get wipes diapers toys blankets..
Yea, definitely. I am going to nurse as well so hopefully my little guy will be content while I do. He's pretty independent. I'm just nervous.
Currently I have a 1, 2 and 3 year old. By the middle of next summer I will have four children ages 4 and under. I do what I can when I can do it. Right now we have moved into a new place so the kids are up a lot during the night. Yes I get up and comfort them and then when morning rolls around and the 2 and 3 yr olds get up I lay on the sofa and snuggle with them while they watch tv. I take a nap until the 1 yr old wakes up (usually 3 hrs later since he normally wakes up between 5 and 6am to nurse). On days that I'm more tired and want a nap I wait until my 1yr old takes a nap then I put in a movie for the girls and we all snuggle together. I've not yet thought about how life will change when baby #4 comes but I've still got some time.
