DS is 6 and I was kind of planning on him just hanging out and taking care of himself during the birth (my parents are just a few houses down and he has friends near by who I'm sure he could go visit too if he gets antsy). He says he'd like to be in the house, but not in the same room until after the baby comes.
My MW was saying that I'll want to get someone whose sole responsibility is DS and not me/the birth since he'll likely be in and out and everywhere and in the event of a transfer we wouldn't have to worry about packing him up too.
I honestly really don't want anyone else in the house though.
I wouldn't mind my MIL or SIL there (they're both rather dis-interested in the birthing process...but then again I'm not sure they'd want to be there), I'm not sure what my mom would think with being there but not really being there for ME. She sure did take good care of me after DS's birth.
Is it wrong of me to assume DS would manage fine on his own and only arrange childcare as a back-up as need be? Anyone BTDT?
