I am new here and and looking for any tips on having two under two. My toddler is almost19 months and my baby boy is almost 3 months. I'd love to find ways to entertain my daughter while I put my baby boy to sleep. Once she wrote with a pen all over her rocking chair. I usually taken them both upstairs and sometimes she reads her books other times she wants attention and comes into baby boys room and starts screaming. When desperate I pull out the ipad, but would like that to be the last option.

Hi and Welcome to Mothering!


You might try posting in Parenting, or in The Childhood Years and seeing if there are some suggestions for you.  It can be frustrating when the kids are going in different directions at the same time.
