Just chiming in that I'm looking for resources, too, for our 6.5 year old. She's very, very, very close to both of us. We're splitting up amicably and will definitely be sharing custody. But I'm anxious to figure out the best way to bring her into this new reality. I suspect she suspects already.

nak -- hope to be clear our almost 6 yo (July) is with us and now our 6week old. the baby wakes Maya (older) up, so I end up now getting up for the 3am-ish and staying up.

I've just stopped being naked around my almost-six year old. I'm nursing her 6 week old sister now, so she's seeing my breasts again. But, after Maya stopped nursing (in December, she was 5.5) I just stopped changing in front of her, made sure the towel was in reach, etc. Never even said anything about it, just sort of closed the door. Once or twice she wanted contact (when sleeping), but it's now become something she just doesn't do. She wanted to taste the new breast...
