We do emergency foster care and have just had a 4 week old placed with us for at least six weeks due to an unsafe home environment. So we're having a practice run. Our boys, (7 and 3) are loving it, they both want to hold him all the time.
A novel experience for us mixing formula since we've never had in the house before! The little guy is doing really well and has really relaxed and settled in over the last couple of days, he's a big sling fan and loves a bath!
And having a 7 year old is great, he held the baby while I had a shower yesterday, so much easier than rushing and trying to prevent the 3 year old from loving the baby too much which was how it was with #2.
