    At the moment my son has been acting out a lot lately. He is such a sweet boy but he seems to be acting more clingy, whinny, and very needy these past few days. I know he senses the new baby is coming soon because I have been getting everything ready for and just recently set up her cradle in my room. I have him help me with her things and keep him involved but he’s wanting to be carried all the time now and his new thing is telling me no. Even if he ends up doing it anyways. It’s so hard being in my last month of pregnancy and having my son behaving like this. I made him a nice big brother surprise bag for when he comes to see his sister for the first time at the hospital hoping it will help. I’m also planning to keep him very involved with her and asking him for help with the little things when she does arrive so he doesn’t feel replaced. I sure hope this behavior that has started goes away its hard now and I know it will be harder with a newborn. :'(

  4. my youngest can always get his diaper off while he’s asleep… lots of wonderful art creations on the wall and all over the crib and him when we wake up!!!

    But I think that focusing on these things doesnt beat realizing they will never be this small again!

    I am a new mom of a beautiful 6 week old baby girl and my biggest parenting challenge would be doing things alone most of the time. not saying its impossible but i wish her father would be there more.

  17. i hope that you have a support system! :( it’s really gotta be hard to have both children sooo young at the same time (although later it will be nice that they might even play together giving you valuable "quiet time!" :)

    in the meantime, can someone bring him to you when he’s really upset? or i used to have my son climb up to me on really bad days so we could work it out. he will get better :) he’s just jealous. maybe have him help if possible with the baby (i know he’s really young, but even at 20mos, they love to help with little things!). I know that you know some/all of this info already, but believe me it helps to hear it more than once, esp in the middle of a fit and you can’t remember what to do lol :) good luck with your new little one and your bigger little one!

    trying to get my 7 month old son to get to sleep at a decent time. hes always wanting to go to sleep around 12-1 am…

  19. Get him to help you with the baby things! like "can you get mommy the wipes/diapers/milk/blanket etc)" so that he feels important and distracts him from being jealous!

    Right Now is trying to get my babygirl to sleep she dont like to sleep shes 3 months old and will be cranky and cry when she starts to pass out. Shes a good baby other then that.

  22. Making sure that I have enough time to spend with Sam. I work and go to school full time and that doesn’t leave me a lot of babytime. I just have to learn to make more space in my day. Throw my hair up and take the thirty minutes I’d spend doing it otherwise, with my little angel!

  23. Trying not to spoil my baby girl
