? for those of you who now have a toddler and nb

How did your toddler handle it?  Were they a mess when they had to the leave you and the baby at the hospital?  How are they doing with you needing to give the baby so much attention? 

I have a feeling DS is going to be excited/nervous to meet his little sister and will be great at the hospital until it's time for him to go home without me Sad  I have 2 little toys for him that I plan to give him right before he leaves to try and distract the "departure". 

I'd like to think he's going to be a great big bro right from the start but he's already let me know that he'd like Piper to stay in my belly lol.  I think he'll be pretty good once we get home- probably a bit jealous at times which is natural.

  • DD did great at the hospital until it was time to go, then she had to be carried out kicking and screaming.  It was also lunchtime by then so I'm sure being hungry added to it.  Daddy ended up going home too, to grab a shower, so they stopped fo

  • I had DD in the delivery room except for things like the epidural placement and pushing. She had a hard time the night we were in the hospital because she was still suffering the after-effects of a cold on top of going home without me.

  • When we were in the hospital, that was the first time DS has ever spent the night away from me. He did so so much better than I thought. He stayed with my mom [who he sees every day] and came and saw us in the hospital plenty.

    As for the bab

    I ended up being in the hospital for almost a week before I came home. I was admitted 4 days before the baby was born, spent 2 nights there being monitored for high bp, released and came home for one night then was sent back to be induced.

  • I'm a FTM so I don't have any advice, but I DO want to tell you I love the name Piper!!! I tried to get DH onboard with it, but we settled on Rowan.

    Good luck with her and DS!

  • My son was not able to come to the hospital due to flu restrictions.  I was sad at first but I think it ended up being a good thing.  When we came home I went in first and he was really excited to see me.  We then brought in our daughter

  • DS did great while I was In the hospital. We had been talking about it for awhile, that mommy would go to the hospital to have his sister and he'd go to grandma's house. He only spent one night at my parents and was pretty spoiled there so he didn't seem

  • My kids have done really well with the transition.  No jealousy or anything.  Kids are not allowed at my hospital right now due to the horrible cold and flu season, so I can't answer that.  Although, I don't remember it being an issue when

  • It hasn't quite been what I expected, but I'm not sure I thought would happen. DS has special needs (autism) and has trouble making connections/understanding some things.

    He was fine when I was in the hospital (daycare during the day and DH or t
