Questions. . .
I have a 7y.o, almost 2y.o and a 3wk old.
I need advice any advice on what you moms of multiple children are doing schedule wise. I'm not a very strict mom I let the kids sleep once there tired, bla bla bla no schedule or anything.
I am currently Tandem nursing which right now is one of the hardest things for me cause my 23 month old is demanding more and more feedings and also doesnt seem to understand me telling her baby feeds first and or atleast allw me to position myself to comfortably hold her w/o hurting baby. Especially once bed time hits she is literally crawling up me as I try putting baby down first and it just frustrates me. I dont like being angry or short w/ her cause she isnt even 2 yet, and I am the one that decided to continue nursing her knowing I was expecting. She doesnt have many rules cause normally it felt like she was an only child cause my oldest goes off to school then just me and her all day. She doesnt get time outs, she co-sleeps w/ me and OH still, still nurses and always nurses to sleep. I am just losing it right now and need advice on some structure and schedules.
Like wake up, nap, bedtime routines and how to get her to sleep on her own, slowly wean etc. ANY advice welcome. I'm not asking for someone to make up my day, just what do you do and what workd for you other mothers of more than one kid at home. I do have an older child and she had structure but I was a single mom with her and she just always had discipline. My 23month old gets babied by, well everyone and especially her dad. I cant have her running things anymore. I need a schedule of some sort before I literally go crazy.
