M will be 18months old when DS is born and I'm not sure how to go about "preparing" her... I mean it seems so much easier with an older child, when they can really understand what is happening but what do you do for a younger one?
I'm a SAHM so I feel like that will be rough on her so we've already started working on having DH take more responsibilities. He's been slowly doing more meal/snack times and bed times. We've even started getting him out of his giving-baths-phobia lol and on the weekends he pulls a lot more weight with her, even getting up in the mornings with her and taking her out on errands. She's very independent, she keeps herself entertained for hours on end, goes to sleep by herself and sleeps very well, etc. so I think that will help us in the long run. When it comes to TV time, I've been using the on demand and choosing her favorite shows where the episode is about babies in some way.
We don't have any babies in our families, she is the youngest so we can't really go the hands on learning route... is there anything else I can do that I'm not already?
