Coping with a newborn and a toddler – any tips?
Having bought this book The Second Baby Survival Guide the consensus
seems to be:
Fit the baby into the toddler’s routine
Give a present from the baby to the toddler when it’s born
Use a special toy box for toddler while you’re breastfeeding
Embrace the concept of the TV babysitter!
Don’t stress too much (ha!)
Any other pearls of wisdom? I’ll report back from the battleground on this front when
sanity returns after the birth towards the end of the year…
