My daughter is 14 months old and wants to be held constantly. All day. She will get down to play for a little while. but 5 minutes later comes running over to be held. Sitting in my lap isnt enough, she wants to be on my hip. I clean one handed, do laundry one handed. Hell i even pee and pull up my pants one handed!!
I am now 5 weeks pregnant with my third. I cant keep carrying her all day. But i also hate hearing her scream and cry.
i want to be mindful of her needs. But when is enough enough? What about my needs?
What can i do to help her learn that being down is ok...playing in the house is ok. She can be next me, I wouldnt mind that. She could sit right beside me on the couch while I knit if she wanted to. Its not so much her "being up my butt". i never feel like that..ever. I love my children near me. I love doing things together as a family.
But its having to constantly hold her.
she doesnt do this with her father.
And as the weeks go by, and my belly gets bigger....this isnt going to fly.
thank you in advance!
