Hi all! Newbie and also migrated over from baby-center...really enjoying mothering loads better! We are expecting our second little babe in December, and just found out this Sunday. I'm a mix of emotions to be frank, and I'm already a mama of a 1 1/2 year old girl. We practice AP and she's still bed sharing and nursing, which I don't mind.
As time goes on, and my belly grows (if nothing goes sour), I don't really want to keep bed-sharing with her. My hubs works 3rd shift so I don't have to worry much about him...just her. Any mama's out there who've been there and done that with bed sharing? What are your tips to wean gently from the bed? We've tried her mattress on the floor beside our bed, and she ends up getting up and flopping on me in the middle of the night. I've also put her in her room (but not been consistent). She'll sleep for about 3-4 hours before waking up and coming to me, and I am half asleep so I just let her come to bed with me.
Also, how on earth do you ladies (with two or more) find time to breathe and not go batty? My daughter is very spirited, and has issues being left with others unless it's her father or my mother.
Two babes isn't anything new, I know. I am just having a hard time feeling super- excited about this pregnancy. More or less I'm worried about I'm going to divide my time between the two, money, etc.
I know-I'm getting waaay ahead of myself. Thanks for reading ladies.
