Hi all!  I am currently a mother of two....my first daughter is 16 months now and my newest one is 2 weeks old!  I am a stay at home mom.  I was wondering if anyone has any good routines or activities that would help with my 16 month old during the day that I could do while taking care of (feeding, breastfeeding, holding ect.) my newborn?  I am finding it challenging coming up with things for her to do and I don't want her to watch tv or cartoons too much.......

You could read to her while nursing. Does she like puzzles? That may keep her busy too. Shape sorter? Coloring?

I went with the policy of needs must. Now ds is a bit bigger they play together. I wouldn't stress abut it too much. Obviously too much is not ideal but if you make sure you're getting one on one time and out door play she'll be fine.
