mama to two amazing children son 10/27/07 and daughter 07/07/11
Dh, Me , DD 10 , DD 7 , DD 4
We , , , , not in that order
Every time I'm left alone with the baby and our toddler though, DD1 grabs something she shouldn't have, or does something she shouldn't, and no amount of telling her to stop works. In the past I've always just gotten up and redirected her physically, but it seems like she waits until I'm BFing DD2 and cant move, to get herself into trouble. I'm actually terrified of being left alone with the two of them. Even if DH is just in the next room doing dishes and the gate is up, something bad seems to happen and I just sit there about to cry, very frustrated with DD and not sure how to fix the situation. Its either yell at DD1, which doesnt generally work, or stop BFing and let DD2 cry so I can go handle the issue w/ DD1. I have sling that I wear, but while it doesnt bother me to wear it sitting down, it is really uncomfortable to wear standing up, probably because it strains my stomach muscles.
I was just logging on to see if anyone else was having similar problems actually. It makes me so sad and scared.
