I came home from the hospital Sunday. LO is 5 days old today and DS is 5 1/2 years old.
He thinks the baby is cute and tiny. He's read her a story, sang songs and fetched me a burp cloth. He's told her that he loves her.
But he's in kindergarten so he's gone most of the day, DH has been taking him to and from school this week for me while he's off work, and DS and I just haven't had much time together. I'm bf ing on demand and sore from the c/s, but I am afraid DS feels like I'm ignoring him.
This morning he came upstairs to talk to me before school but then left quick because LO was nursing and he only wanted to see me... It's hard to change nearly 6 years of routine being the only child...
Any one have tips/experience bringing baby home with a school-aged older child? What things were/are you able to do with just the older sibling?
