Ooooh I'm so excited I have an older child to help out this time around. She's just 4 but she's so excited. She's constantly going on and on about how she's going to grab diapers for me and tickle her sister's toes while we nurse and wash my hair while the 3 of us take a bath, etc etc etc. She's going to be a HUGE help I'm sure. I like the idea of one-handed snack foods and individual drinks. I will be putting them on a low shelf in the kitchen for dd to run while I nurse or to get for herself when I'm unavailableto help.
Moms remember to set up a nursing station or a nursing basket that's portable. You won't really be able to get up and you will spend tons of time in your station so equip it well. I put a table next to my rocker/glider and will equip it each morning with a water bottle or 5 or 6 and some snacks and a few books for my older dd and some breastpads for leakage/spurting. Goes well with the portable diaper basket that's equipped with diapers, covers, wipes, spray bottle with wipes solution in it, rash balm, doublers, liners, etc. Great to carry around the house for changes anywhere at any time with minimal fuss. Also, it's lightweight enough for the 4 year old to grab it for me without too much direction or mess-ups. She knows just to grab the basket and everything I need is there!
