How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO?

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud?

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing?

Where Is your new LO sleeping?

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after?

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? She is doing really well. She likes to help and give him kisses.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? Yep. Chase sleeps right through it.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? She asked what I was doing the first time and now she just says Chase is eating. Sometimes she feeds her duck a bottle at the same time. And yes, she role plays with a duck. She doesn't like dolls.

Where Is your new LO sleeping? In the pack n play in our sitting room/office which is off our bedroom.

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? Late afternoon and early evening when my DD is getting tired and cranky.

I think they all are adjusting very well
Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud?
Yes, she is used to all the noise
Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing?
My 3rd and 4th seem to be interested in it. It's old hat to my oldest 2.
Where Is your new LO sleeping?
Either in her crib, on my or dh's chest or arms or in bed with dh.
What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after?
Mornings after dh leaves. It means I am home with the youngest 3 with no help. It's actually easier once my oldest 2 are home from school.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud?
yes Logan is not really that loud in the house

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing?
Logan plays and often brings me toys and lines them up on the BF pillow
he has been great about it!

Where Is your new LO sleeping?
naps in carseat or swing, night in pack and play beside my bed

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 children
when it is time for bath and bed for logan and gavin wants to feed and daddy is not home

**Logan did ask me when i was feeding Gavin if milk comes out of that one (pointing to one breast) what comes out of that one? pointing to the other breast.... i thought it was kinda cute ... he thought that it might be juice!

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? Drew is doing super. He loves Rachel and has been really helpful.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? During the day Rachel will sleep through anything.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? Drew is curious what I'm doing and thinks my nipple looks like a bruise. So far he hasn't tried to nurse his baby doll yet but I expect that to happen soon.

Where Is your new LO sleeping? During the day she sleeps in the PNP downstairs. At night she doesn't want to sleep and often the only way to get any rest is for her to sleep on my chest. we usually end up in a chair in the living room where I nurse her. We keep trying the crib but she just really wants to be awake at night.

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? So far things haven't been too hard. My son is still going to daycare 2-3 days a week so I have a lot of time with just one child and my husband is off work for these first 3 weeks so I have a lot of help. Ask me again in 2 weeks when he goes back to work and I'm sure I'll have a different answer.

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? She likes him but HATES when he crys!! She put's her hand over her ears and screams Noooooo..It's funny but Im trying to break her of it. I guess It will happen in time.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? A Little but she Loves running up to him and screaming cause she's excited so He always wakes up.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? she says "Num Nums"..and wants to sit on the pillow too.

Where Is your new LO sleeping? In the Mini Co-sleeper beside my bed.

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? The Morning. Cambria wakes at 9 and soon after she eats. Baylen wakes around 6-9 ( a few times between there ) and If I bring him downstairs to the swing and have to get her out of bed sometimes he has to cry a little. I feel bad but I dont have help so thats the way it's gotta be.

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? Eli has adjusted really well to having a baby sister. He likes to give her kisses and hugs and every time she makes a little noise or cries he comes running.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud?She sleeps through Eli being really noisy.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing?He seems interested in what we are doing and if she finishes and my breast is still out he tries to push her head to my nipple so she can nurse more.

Where Is your new LO sleeping?We co-sleep

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after?Sometimes it's hard to balance everything. Especially in the middle of the night when they both wake up at the same time and want to cuddle. It's also been a little difficult not having any help at all. Dh is super busy with work and literally just comes home to sleep right now. He leaves within 30 minutes of getting up in the morning and doesn't come home until around 11:30pm after me and the kids have gone to sleep. I know it's only temporary but at the moment I feel like a single mother.

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? She loves him!!! She gives him tons of kisses and comes running when, "baby's fussy" or "baby's crying"

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? For the most part, he sleeps right through it.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? She's got her dolls out, and once she tried to BF them already! She doesn't really say or do much else, except know that "baby brother's eating" or he's hungry

Where Is your new LO sleeping? During the day, he may be in his crib, in my arms or in his bouncy chair... at night, we started in the pnp, but it was a pain in the butt to reach in and get him out, and he sleeps better next to me, so we're co-sleeping til he sleeps a bit longer at night

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? We are having a HORRIBLE time now with Kensley's sleep. It's all messed up. She fights her naps, FIGHTS them (never did before) and nights are a living nightmare. She refuses to go to sleep at her normal hour, will turn on the light and then will wake up again at like 4:00 am and take forever to go back to sleep. It's exhausting.

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? The first couple days were a little rough, but she's doign very well. Always trying to help and give hugs and kisses.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? He pretty much sleeps through it.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? When I was trying, she just associates it with he's hungry and leaves him alone lol. Probably because she takes her own food pretty seriously.

Where Is your new LO sleeping? He's in our room right now, in his bassinet

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? I think nights. When DD is tired and getting ready for bed, and of course DS is either on or off. Just balancing DD's nighttime routine and now DS. DH has been really good about helping out though.

How Is your other baby/toddler adjusting to your new LO? Great actually - she always wants to know where the baby is - We tell her that his name is Jackson and say to her "can you say Jackson" and she calls him Jack Baby... She can get a little rough with him so we definitely keep an eye on that and they are never alone together.

Does your LO get any sleep with the older child running around being loud? Absolutely - we have always heard to make sure that you keep things normal in regards to volumes and stuff - so Jackson has no problem.

Are you BFing If so what does your LO do when they see you nursing? Pumping and Supplementing - Emmie saw me pumping yesterday and asked me about it and I told her I was getting baby's milk and she just kept saying baby milk.

Where Is your new LO sleeping? In a bassinet next to our bed on my side... He will move into his room about 5 or so months.

What Is the hardest part of your day with 2 ( or more ) children to look after? When I have to be with both of them by myself (last night was the first night) - It is hard when they both demand your attention at the same time.
