So I am full term 37 wks tmw so she can come any day now. This is our 3rd...others are 4 and 2. The 2 yr old is very clingy - gone through a lot of change in the past 6 months - losing binky, moving to toddler bed, potty training, etc. so here is my question - my dh can take 1 month of paternity leave. I think I will need the help right away and want him to take it the first month after she is born. He wants to take it at the end to help transition the kids to my returning to work (I work ft, but was put n bedrest at the beginning of my 7th month so all said and done i will have been home with them for 6 months) . Understand his point but I am nervous about how to handle a newborn with the other two alone - ESP. With my dd being so needy right now. Dh is an rn so he works 12 hr shifts 3 days a week - that makes me single mom for the days he works - n help at all. So - what do you think- take paternity right away or wait? Thanks - and any advice on how to manage three would be great!
