...I don't know where else to post this!
Please help me: DS is 3 yr 3 mo, DD1 is 2 yr, and DD2 is 2 mo. I mean no disrespect to those of you who are parenting twins and triplets, to compare my situation to yours! But I could really use some advice though: How in the world do I give everyone the attention they need?? Do any of you have twins close in age to an infant? My biggest issues are: DD1 cries all the time since I have to give her little sister constant attention. DD1 is still nursing, and these days it's up to 6-8 times/day (was nap and bedtime before.) Both she and DS are potty trained, but yesterday DS pooped on the floor (no reason. He just said he wanted to.) He is such a gentle soul, but lately has been hitting so aggressively! DD1 hits a lot, but it's more her "nature" to be rough and physical, which makes it extra hard to know how to handle it. Infant is truly colicky, and also won't sleep for more than about 10 min without being held. I carry her in the Moby, but then DD1 can't nurse, nor can I play with either older kid as much as we would all like/they need. We have help come in to the house a couple times a week, but I don't know how to best utilize the help. DH is very helpful and supportive, but has to work, obviously. Please, can you offer me any tips, advice, anything?? I just want to burst into tears/run away most of the time!! I'm so worried that this is causing permanent psychological damage to the older 2!
