I'm so glad I found this thread! Avena I just ordered some teas and I'm really happy to find teas for kids, especially one for teething! That has been our biggest issue right now. My ds is 27 months and my dd is 10 weeks. It's been such a juggling act but we are making our way. But seeming them interact together is so wonderful at the same time.
I was nervous about bedtime too since we co-sleep and in the beginning it used to take my mom and I tag teaming the kids at bedtime.
We foundly remember in the beginning when it took both of us two hours 3 diaper (2 for dd and 1 for ds) to get my oldest to sleep. Now most nights are going well. My husband works night shift 5 days a week and a 13 hr shift on sundays, so I only have him to help one night a week.
My moby wrap is a life saver- if you don't wear your baby I would give it a try, it was a challenge at first but we've got it down now and without I would NEVER get anything done. Does anyone have experience nursing with a moby? I would love any tips on how to be successful at it.
Before my dd was born our ds never really watched tv but I've found myself using "toons" as a bit of a crutch on hectic days. We try to not have it happen everyday so I'm hoping it's not too bad for him.
Has anyone else had sick kids a lot this winter. My son has been sick off and on since the birth of my second; it's just seemed really bad this year.
