Trying to sleep sucks!! I sleep on my sides but my hips hurt so bad during the night. I used to sleep more on my stomach but if I just lay on it a little bit now baby girl starts kicking me like crazy. I know it smushes her lol I have a pregnancy pillow I put it between my legs and under my stomach to help but it doesn’t. Anyone have any advice? It starts as my hips but by the morning it’s my hips and lower back.
A few people had discussed getting a baby doll for their toddler early on and I was wondering if anyone had gotten it and/or had success with it? DS I feel like is at a great learning age right now (21 months) with a bunch of lessons that we want to stay working on with him and was wondering if anyone (especially any TTM's) might have any tips for helping ease the transition of baby coming in, in a way that won't upset his course of progress? Just for example we're working on sharing right now especially. And gentle touches/petting as opposed to hard touches/hitting. Positive affirmation and agreeing to things as well (his favorite word is still no).
@cmbt2 I think we're going to go right ahead and get that season. PBS doesn't let you choose which seasons you can play on demand so I'm gonna look on Amazon for the DVD's.@greenbean-2 that's another great suggestion. Just subscribed!
My kids are 20 months apart and I don’t remember the transition with bringing a new sibling home being a problem at all. We did get a big sibling book that we read frequently but never any issues really. I know every kid is different. My two are inseparable and best friends now. I hope that they always have that bond and hopefully the third baby will be just the same. The thing I worry about is the middle child....
Any TTM+ mom’s doing anything to prepare youngest LO for new baby? I am getting DD a Big Sister book and DS the Berenstain Bears Baby Makes Five book.
