So I'm going in for my planned c section in less than a month and I feel like all of a sudden my sweet little boy that was 2 when I found out I was pregnant is now a cranky, picky boy 50%of the time and I'm just so worried that when this baby comes he will get jealous and act up even more. Overall he is a very good boy, but it's mine and his father fault that he may be a little spoiled. My concerns right now with his is:
1. He refuses to use the potty, I offer him "treats" if he goes or try to sit on the potty but he either cries or just lashes out and I don't want to push it or have him associate potty training as bad. I was hoping to have him trained before the baby came but doesn't look like that will happen.
2. He still sleeps in a crib(thankfully) but I've been going back and forth whether or on to transition him to a toddler bed. Lately he's been not taking naps during the day unless he passes out on his own, I have him stay in his room till he falls asleep, or in the car. And sometimes he gets upset to just go to bed at night in general. I don't want to set myself for more trouble and stress for when the baby comes, but I know sooner or later I have to do it. I guess the question is to just wait a bit after the baby comes to have a more idea of what both of their sleep schedules are like.
3. Finally we live in a 2 bedroom apartment and our lease is up in June which kinda works out because with my first son he slept in our room for about 3-4 months. I've been thinking instead of trying to find a 3 bedroom apartment or house to just have the 2 kids share a room for a year just until we get new orders(military wife) Any advice on that and how a baby sleeping in the same room as a toddler could be a bad idea...waking up at night, toddler getting sick, etc.
I hope it's just the age/ phase because like I said he is overall a very good boy with his moments, I just don't have many friends that kids his age to ask for advice.
