My mom is able to keep DD1 pretty entertained most of the time, but I am scared for when she leaves in 12 days.
DH is talking about weaning, but I don't like that idea. HELP.
DD1 (almost 27 months) is having a very hard time adjusting to the baby. We all co-sleep and whenever I need to nurse baby or am cuddling with her, DD1 cries. DH is not able to comfort DD1. I am nursing DD1 3-4 times in 24 hours and wont be nursing her on demand until I feel like nursing baby is well established and I know DD2 is gaining well. DD1 says 'no milk baby Hannah' almost every time I nurse DD2. DD1 has also tried to pull baby out of my arms and out of the bounce seat several times, it seems out of anger.... When we are not paying attention to her. We are trying to make lots of special time and reading books when baby nurses, but it seems it is getting worse (we are 12 days out).
How is the sibling issue going for everyone now??
My DS1 (almost 3) is now much more adjusted to baby, very sweet with him. BUT, he still gets jealous of my time. If baby starts crying and I go to him, he says "I don't want you to hold the baby." For night time sleeping, I have now moved baby out to another room, because they were waking each other up. After a week or two sleeping with him there, DS1 started waking frequently looking for me. So, I have moved back to cosleeping with DH and DS1, and poor DS2 is in another room! Not sure when I will be able to bring him back in...
Still tandem nursing, but have been talking for weeks about how DS1 will be stopping at 3. I'm ready.
What is everyone else doing?
