Going from 1-2 was harder for me than from 2-3 o 3-4. It was a struggle to learn how to balance myself between the two kids. Once we figured that out, we were good. 2-3 was really easy considering that I was alone, (ex-dh was deployed) and Christopher decided to come a month early so I had no family around but I would still say that for me, 1-2 was more challenging.
Babywearing is a lifesaver! you can nurse and do everything else. When Bella was born, I was babysitting a littl boy who was 18 months and BW was the only thing that got me through it!
I obviously don't have any experience with going from 1-2 since I was given two at one time! But adding another baby to our already established routine has been a bit challenging. I have two big kids who want to be played with. But I have a baby I'm nursing. So I can sit on the floor and do a puzzle one handed with one of the girls while I'm nursing the baby, but if the other big girl brings me a book, I've run out of hands. I can't nurse, read, and do puzzles at the same time!
I'm finding it harder to get out of the house at the moment. I could get out of the house fairly well with just the twins because of having the double stroller. But Elli's not fond of being in a carrier right now (hopefully she'll adjust!), which means SHE would have to occupy one of the spaces in the stroller. And that leaves me with one of the toddlers having to walk along side me...and I don't trust them quite yet!
Thank you HeatherW for my beautiful, beautiful siggy!
