I'm having a hard time adjusting to our new family. I feel like my 22 mo. old DS1 wants nothing to do with me and he's obsessed with DH now! He's been home this week and going back to work tomorrow and I know he's gonna cry for him all day (at least at nap time - he doesn't want me to put him down any more, just DH). I miss my little guy:( We were so close and now I'm feeling our family is separated into me/baby and dH/DS.

Anyone else going or gone through this?

Oh I'm so sorry. It's only been a couple days here and DD is going from clingy to me (especially when tired) to being mad at me and wanting nothing to do with me. It's challenging. I have so much love for both of them it's hard.

Better today:) DS was just fine w/me, barely asked for daddy today. Aparently it's totally normal at this age, which is great timing for us...I was just hoping it wasn't b/c of the baby, I was feeling guilty!

My 4 y.o. Loves her new baby brother, but there has been lots of acting out and bad behavior, no matter how much attention and love we can manage to give her ... So hard to not get frustrated when you're tired and trying to nurse the newbie.. I guess it gets easier?
