How do you like the age spread w/getting preg 15 mos pp? I'm wondering how it would work for us.
my boys are 23.5 months apart and I LOVE IT -- it has been awsome and great and we've had NO problems. OK I know you don't beleive me -- but we are blessed it is TRUE.
I sleep with the two boys -- DH sleeps alone.
Theo is in the process of weaning, on his own, at 8 months past 2. He nursed all of my pregancy. he did "strike" the last 3 weeks or or - he'd ask, but then not latch, but with in 2 weeks of CAP's birth he was back ont eh breast. Latch is not tooo sloppy, but not perfect.
We read a ton of books, and we read them DAILY. we talked about shreing nurse-nurse and the bed front eh day i got the pos test. Theo went to doc appt and heard his heart then the baby heart (and mine to show him it wasn't me). we had an awsome OB.
Theo has handled it a ton better than i had any right to expect.
I think a lot of it is 1. personality 2. how it is presented (we NEVER told Theo he would be BIG, we alwasy said we are having ANOTHER BABY, we never ever told Theo to do this or that because the baby was coming ... we did not attempt PT or limit nurseing or move his bed / bedtime/ or anything at all) 3. how the parents EXPECT it to go. We expected two babies that would love each other and be great together -- adn we got it.
yes it is a bit of a thinking challange -- i remember the first time i took them both out alone -- CAP was 2 weeks and Theo 24 months .....
: it was NOT but now we do it all the time .. learning curve.
MY BFF has a 4 year break and it has SUCKED> the older boy regressed in sleep, and PT and eating adn learned to sneak off when mom nursed the baby and get into stuff and so on .......
Theo will not remember life without little brother.
There was no regression as there was nothing to regress -- he still was in diapers, BF when he wanted to and sleeping with me ....
I think it is the perfect age differnce .... We are praying to have the same or less time between CAP and a new baby ...
