My three under 3 love Barney, Thomas, sesame and yo gabba gabba.
I don't have an older child I have a younger infant (4months) AND 1 1/2 year old twins, a whole different challenge (but I'm glad I had twins first). Twin parenting is about survival and doing your best. They'll love you no matter what because you're THEIR Mommy :-) This is your new family, and your parenting will have to adjust. Don't be hard on yourself! They're going to cry, unless you can hire a nanny or have volunteers come in 24/7 to help you, this is inevitable...
Oh and the dye they put on the umbilical cord is called Triple Dye. It's an anti-septic to prevent infection and not all hospitals/doctors use it. My first babies, twins, they didn't have that and also I never used alcohol as per my pediatrician. My third baby had a new hospital and new pediatrician and they used the dye and she said to use alcohol. They were born 13 months apart.   I don't think anybody will have an issue with you declining it if that's what you...
http://epi.publichealth.nc.gov/cd/diseases/gonorrhea.html Seems it is NC state law to get the eye ointment. Whether or not CPS is called is probably up to the hospital where you deliver. I would think CPS would have more important things to worry about though-- a c-section baby whose mother refused prophylactic eye ointment isn't exactly an emergency.   http://www.mothering.com/community/t/267885/vitamin-k-and-eye-ointment-laws-in-nc   I am not in NC, but...
Thanks for the suggestions, anybody have suggestions for any ped a little closer? I think Marlton is too far for me and there may be too much traffic up that way. I'll have to see how far sicklerville is... Anybody have a good/bad experience at Avocare Laural Pediatrics (Glassboro) or Avocare Township Pediatrics (Washington Township)?   Breastfeeding friendly doc preferably and my boy is intact as well (thank you PP for reminding me that is important). I am aware not...

I'm looking for a breastfeeding friendly all around excellent pediatrician ASAP. We delay certain vacs, but we do vaccinate fully. I'm in Sewell/Mantua Township, willing to travel up to 20-30 minutes away.   Hoping to stop the trip over the bridge with three under two, into DelCo to visit non-breastfeeding friendly ped. We're kind of new to the area :)   Thanks in advance,   L
Gozal-   I have 10 1/2 month old twins and have had little help. It's very hard (and probably harder with an 5yo), but you can do it. After 6+ months it does get way easier. My mother lives over an hour away, and my DHs family I always felt awkward to ask them to help with chores (every time they'd visit they'd just want to hold a baby and I felt like I had to entertain them). I had a few offers of help "with the babies", but I always felt weird taking anybody up on...
No I don't think cribs are a losing battle. Personally, they are a tool for my sanity and a safe place for my babies (who are 10 1/2 months old)! If I put my girls on queen mattresses on the floor they would be up half the night and would surely crawl off and get into something they shouldn't.   I am not sure what sort of help I could be because I FF (couldn't BF d/t numerous medical reasons)... I don't cosleep, except for the occasional nap. In any case, I'm going...
