My first DS was 22 mo when my second DS was born, and he'd seen vids and done fine with them. At one point, he liked watching the Gentle Birth Choices DVD better than watching a kids show. We kept the mood light like 'that mommy is working hard to help her baby be born'. IMO it was a lot less scary then say, some Disney movies.

We made it to nine months (I would have been thrilled to make it to 12 but nine was good!) and by then he was reaching for food and crying that he couldn't have it, he had teeth and was walking and I felt ok in my gut about letting him have a go at solids. And he's been a GREAT eater, so I love to blow that assumption out of the water, since everyone thought he would be picky and not know what to do with food etc. One great thing was he was able to go straight to...
1 bathroom is doable! I grew up in a family of 5 with one bathroom and didn't think twice about it. My fam is currently 2 adults plus 2 kids and occasional overnight guests (adults), and we have a home with one bathroom.
